Suchith Suresan sings in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada and has come to be known as a highly reliable singer.

Suchith Suresan has gained rep utation as a bankable singer in tinsel town. Be it in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu or Kannada industry, Suchith is a singer who has made his mark with his inimitable singing style.

From "Pularumo..." in 'Rithu' to his recent songs, "Yaanam..." in 'Escape from Uganda' and "Doore Manathu..." in 'Weeping Boy', this singer has come a long way. “It has been a memorable journey so far. In M'wood my break came with the song "Molly Cool..." in 'Molly Aunty Rocks'. Then came the melodious "Thaarame..." for Shyamaprasad's 'English'. It was followed by the song "Shivane... "in 'ABCD (American Born Confused Desi)' and 'Doore Doore..." in 'Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi'."


A trained Carnatic and Hindustani singer, Suchith says that Malayalam films are currently experimenting with different genres of music which is a welcome change. “Most industries have a stereotypical genre. But in M'wood most of the new films have a different kind of song in it."

Suchith's song from 'Escape from Uganda' (EFU) has been well received. “Varun Unni, the composer of EFU, is a friend of mine. The song "Yaanam..." from the film is in reggae genre. It is good to hear that the song is getting rave reviews," says the singer who began his singing career in 2007.

Suchith has worked with Rex Vijayan in three films and is all praise for him.

“He is my favourite musician in the world. He gives maximum freedom to a singer. I thoroughly enjoy working with him. And I am looking forward to working with him in the future," he says with a smile.

Suchith, has sung for the Tamil and Telugu version of 'Krrish 3' and is thrilled with the appreciation he received from Rakesh Roshan. “After recording the song we sent the audio to Rakesh and he called back and appreciated me."

Rather than singing a number of songs, Suchith prefers to sing one great track. He believes in the quality of songs rather than the quantity.

“I got the opportunity to sing in all the South Indian languages. I've worked with Devi Sri Prasad, S.S. Thaman, Vijay Antony , Mahesh Shankar and Harris Jayaraj to name a few. It feels good working with musicians from all the industries. We can learn a lot and update ourselves from these powerhouses," points out Suchith.
