Full Biography of Music-director K
Krishna Kumar, better known by his stage name K, is an Indian composer, singer-songwriter and music director based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Primarily scoring music for films, newcomer K has worked on multiple short films, as well as several full length feature films in the Tamil film industry.
Born in Nagapattinam, Tamil Nadu, K moved to Chennai when he was four months old. He did his schooling at Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan in Chennai, where he took lessons in playing the keyboard. He quickly progressed and finished Grade 8 certificate exams in music with the Trinity College of Music, London.
His talent found an outlet when he joined his first rock band aged 12, and then played with a successful funk/rock and roll band ‘Panatella’ for several years after that. He moved to creating jingles for advertisements and corporate films, singing several songs for the same.
In the year 2010, K was brought on board for director Mysskin’s film Yuddham Sei. The film’s sound track was a hit. He then composed for Mysskin\'s Mugamoodi starring Jiiva. His next big career break came when famed cinematographer Rajeev Ravi roped him for his directorial venture in Malayalam, Annayum Rasoolum. The movie went on to become a cult favourite.
K is currently scoring the music for four Tamil films, \'Mahabalipuram\', 49-O, \'Kaadu\' and \'Kallapadam\'.
He is also making his musical foray into Bollywood via the Hindi remake of the hit Tamil film - \'Pizza\', for which K will compose one song, the background score and main theme.
\'Kallapadam\', being directed by debutant Vadivelu, also happens to be the first film in which K will feature on-screen. He had formerly turned down a role in his first movie \'Yuddham Sei\', but this time around has agreed to play one of the leads in the upcoming movie.
K won the award for \'Best Re-Recording\' for Yuddham Sei at the 2013 BIG 92.7FM Tamil Melody Awards held in Chennai in September 2013.
