"Edgy Alternative-Rock/ music with soul-stirring undertones"...
A doctor by day, a musician by night...
Adnan Arif 's music is inspired by mankind's 'Eternal Spiritual Restlessness' and the blood, sweat and tears people pour into their lives. His music is inspired by Love, Hope, Fear, Longing, Passion, Lust, Sin, Faith, Guilt, Compassion, Empathy (Human Emotion). And last but not least, it is inspired by the void, i.e. the unknown Metaphysical space between Mankind and The Heavens!
