Multi-talented, multiple award-winning artist RESH has forged a career in the Malaysian and International music scene virtually single-handedly, going from humble beginnings as a sound engineer to becoming one of the most recognizable faces of the Malaysian English music industry in the past eight years.
RESH unleashed himself onto the entertainment scene in 2003 when he released his debut album entitled “Monumental” under the then moniker, Reshmonu. The album took critics and fans by storm with hit singles like Walk Away and It’s You That Matters. The album earned him a whopping seven nominations at the premier Malaysian music industry award show, Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) in 2004, of which he proudly bagged three awards (Best Male Vocals, Best English-language Artiste, Best Engineering for an Album).
He has since established himself as the premier English Language market entertainer in Malaysia, loved and admired by fans worldwide and respected by his peers, and is among an elite few Malaysian artists who have consistently performed as opening act for internationally acclaimed acts touring in Malaysia such as Alicia Keys, Prodigy, Pussycat Dolls, The Black Eyed Peas, Nicole Scherzinger, Girls Generation, and many more. Taking his passion for music one step further, RESH also took on the role of director his music video for ‘The Way It Makes You Move’, which went on to earn him a nomination in the 2008 AIM Awards under the ‘Best Music Video’ Award category.
Most recently, RESH was selected to be featured in the video campaign for THE GLOBAL GOALS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT CAMPAIGN, a ground-breaking collaboration of campaigners, public figures, companies and civil society groups. The video also features celebrities and other influential people such as Bill Gates, Matt Damon, 5 Seconds of Summer and more.
Not only does he sing, write, produce, arrange and engineer his own music, RESH is a consummate perfectionist, overseeing virtually all stages in the process of creating an album which includes directing and editing his own music videos, art directing the artwork of his albums, working on his own unique image styling and plugging his music to local radio stations.
