Prith is a Sydney based RnB singer-songwriter and performer who is now in the process of releasing his first debut album (2021).

It wasn’t until the age of 15 that he began playing guitar and taking singing and music performance as a serious career choice. As his love for music grew, he started performing at school and various events such as holding the lead role for ‘Wakakirri", Australia’s largest performing arts event for schools. Since these humble beginnings, he has since completed his degree in contemporary voice, music and performance at Sydney's  JMC Academy. An avid songwriter, Prith assists our students in areas of voice development, performance, songwriting and music theory.
