A Vin aka Ashwani Maurya was born in Ludhiana, Punjab in the year 1994. The rapper, lyricist and singer completed his education at Uttam Public School and then moved to Lucknow. He graduated from Shia PG College (Lucknow University). He also completed a course in Neurotherapy from LMNT RTI, Mohali and started working as a Neuro-therapist along with his elder brother.
A Vin has 7 siblings, 4 brothers and 3 sisters. His mother is a housewife and his father worked in Ludhiana University. Three of his elder brothers and sisters are all married and his younger sibling is also a rapper.
A Vin was very fond of music since childhood and he loved to listen to Punjabi songs at the time.
When he was in 9th standard, he heard his first rap song, since then there’s no looking back. He soon started writing his own songs and began rapping. When he released his first rap song (SO MUCH LOVE) in 2019, he was 25 at the time. After that he started writing commercial songs.
When he first started writing his own rap songs, he was not very satisfied with his writing up until 2 years, but he did not give up and stayed consistent. That’s what improved his command of his writing skills.
When he first came to Lucknow from Ludhiana, he started working as a Neuro-therapist with his brother who is a senior in the profession. But he could not keep up with both music and neurotherapy and did not write anything for almost two years. But soon he struck a balance between his passion and his profession and began writing rap songs once again.
Although he was getting better at writing day by day and his friends also encouraged him to pursue music, he had no idea how to go about it. He had no knowledge of how to approach producers or how to release a song. But luckily his younger brother, also a rapper and a lyricist, knew some people and through his networking, A Vin got in contact with some music studios.
He released his first rap song, So Much Love, with his younger brother under the production of NR Music. He then released his second songs, Catwalk in collaboration with a regional artist Arfi Guru Music which was produced by Traxeon in the year 2020. In the Traxeon’s music studio, he met Sameer Khan who loved the lyrics of his new song and instantly asked for a collaboration. He then shared the lyrics of ‘Ankhen Nashili’ with Sameer and he wrote the second verse of the rap. That’s when they decided to do the song together.
Aankhen Nashili by A Vin and Sameer Khan will be out soon under GrooveNexus records.
