Full Biography of Music-director James Vasanthan

James Vasanthan is a popular Indian television anchor and film music composer. For more than a decade, he worked as an anchor in popular Tamil satellite television channels like Sun TV, Vijay TV and Makkal TV before turning into a film music composer in the Tamil Film Industry.

James Vasanthan was born in Tiruchirapalli (Trichy), studied at Bishop Heber School and later, graduated in English literature in Bishop Heber College. Later, he graduated in Carnatic music from Madras University and in Western Music from Trinity College, U.K. and even holds a diploma in Theory of Music. Though music was his "first love" , he forayed into TV channel business by working as an anchor in some popular Tamil TV channels.

In 2003, James Vasanthan launched his maiden venture, Vaasanai, a Tamil pop album featuring other prominent TV personalities like Swarnamalya, Uma Padmanabhan and Vijay Adhiraj. Even before that, he has composed music for many good Christian cassettes numbering around 300, like "Amarntha Meliya Satham"(Lyrics:Suresh Frederick), "Sinthanai Sei", "Friends", "Iravin Amaithiyil Yesuvodu" etc. In 2008 then, he eventually entered the Chennai film industry as a music director by composing the songs and score for the Tamil film Subramaniyapuram, directed by M. Sasikumar, who was a student of him in high school, which brought him into prominence with the film`s soundtrack gaining fame and being praised and the song Kangal Irandal topping the charts and being cited as the "anthem of the year among the youth".

The song "Kangal irandal" is believed to have made a record in digital downloads at that time. It was the most favourite song of most composers in the south, which was mentioned by themselves in various interviews across various media.
