Artist Biography
Available in: gb icon
Nivas K. Prasanna is an Indian film composer and singer. He made his debut as a music composer through C. V. Kumar's murder mystery film, Thegidi (2014), winning critical acclaim for his song compositions and background score.

Born and brought up in the town of Tirunelveli in South Tamil Nadu, Nivas began learning Carnatic music aged ten and completed all seven grades of the piano when studying at Magdalene Matriculation Higher Secondary School in the town. He then moved to Chennai with his family and enrolled on the Visual Communications course at SRM University and actively began seeking opportunities in the film music industry. Nivas was chosen by Rajesh Vaidhya to accompany him on tours as a keyboard player and the opportunity gave him the chance to network with other young professionals and work on the music for short films. He also worked with singer Saindhavi on creating a musical album titled Kannamma about the teachings of Bharathiyar, which impressed producer Santhosh from Think Music. Santhosh then recommended him to score the music for Pizza II: Villa (2013), but Nivas was eventually not selected. Santhosh later offered Nivas to work on the murder mystery film, Thegidi (2014), directed by Ramesh and the venture became Nivas's first project.

Thegidi won positive reviews for its music, and the film's success at the box office meant that Nivas K. Prasanna received attention for his work. For the album he worked alongside singers including Shankar Mahadevan, Andrea Jeremiah and Abhay Jodhpurkar. It also won him the Behindwoods Gold Award for Find of the Year, and the composer performed at the awards ceremony. His second album, Sethupathi (2016), received mixed reviews with a review from The Hindu stating it was a "cop-out".
