RESH, as the name he now goes by (formerly Reshmonu) 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. Not only does he sing, write, produce, arrange and engineer his own music, RESH also oversees 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 and working on his own unique image styling.
Multi-talented, multiple award-winning artist RESH has forged a career in the Malaysian and International music scene
RESH unleashed himself onto the entertainment scene in 2003 when he released his debut album entitled “Monumental” under 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). Universal Music Malaysia took an interest in RESH and in 2007, collaborated with him to release his third Malaysian English album entitled “Superfine” with a gala live outdoor concert at The Curve, Kota Damansara, which was attended by over 5,000 fans. He is also among an elite few Malaysian artists who have consistently performed as the opening act for internationally acclaimed acts touring in Malaysia such as Alicia Keys, The Prodigy, Pussycat Dolls, The Black Eyed Peas, Nicole Scherzinger and Girls Generation.
Looking forward to the future and beyond, RESH is excited to release his new yet to be titled EP – a collaborative effort with Jim Beanz of Sunset Entertainment, the musical genius behind Fox TV’s hit series ‘Empire’.
The EP will feature first single “Half The Man”, a song RESH describes as “a reminder of the emotional tilt during a separation period, to relate to all those who have withstood the trials and tribulation of a relationship or to those who have lost a loved one”.
RESH added, ‘Working with Jim Beanz was a fantastic experience, I can’t wait to share my new sound!”. RESH’s first major-label debut EP is scheduled to be released later this year.
