"10 Best Indian albums of 2016": RollingStone

"At 19, guitarist Kush Upadhyay is already a session guitarist for some of the music circuit’s most popular names. After releasing his debut EP Songs In The Key Of EP in 2015, Upadhyay releassed Perspective in 2016. The new record furthers Upadhyay’s signature sonic blend of blues, jazz and rock. Apparently, the five-track album was recorded in a mere one-and-a-half days at Mumbai’s Cotton Press Studios."


"The Kush Upadhyay Group Get Groovy on Second EP": Rollingstone

The Kush Upadhyay Group bring a similar spontaneity on their latest record Perspective, which furthers Upadhyay’s signature sonic blend of blues, jazz and rock. This time, the five-track release was recorded in a mere one and a half days at Mumbai’s Cotton Press Studios (and later mixed and mastered by renowned guitarist and Mumbai-based blues act Blackstratblues frontman Warren Mendonsa.) “Everything happened really fast,” says Upadhyay, “It was kind of impulsive, if I had to say!”

"Getting perspective at 19": Mid-day newspaper

"KUSH UPADHYAY is not your average 19-year-old. He’s not fond of coffee dates or hookah joints. The bespecta- cled geeky guitarist finds leisure in scoring music. Along with his band (The Kush Upadhyay Group) — that came into existence in 2015 — he re- leased two albums. The prodigious talent will promote his second album, Perspective, with a gig in the suburbs tonight."
