Padma hails from a small suburban town near Sheffield in the North of England. He has been a practicing Buddhist for over 10 years and at one time intended to spend his life as part of a Buddhist Order. In the end it was his inability to cope with that exact thing – order – that led to him going his own way, choosing instead the path of the artist.
Padma’s lyrics are very personal, but through drawing on personal experiences and observations, he often makes a wider philosophical or political point. His gentle, lulling guitar technique is often embellished with the subtle use of percussion, vintage effects and analog synthesizers, creating a timeless and other-worldly acoustic-based sound.
Padma’s debut album, Here, will be released on June 2nd 2008 on Just Music
