Suresh Thomas of Crescendo Music announces the launch of his artist management company ‘Shine You Diamonds’

The Folk band ‘Featherheads’ based out of Manipur and Multi Genre Artist Deobrat Mishra, Sitarist are the first Artists from his roster. 

Suresh Thomas, one of the best known names in the Indian Music Industry believes that Artists lack real managers

that help boost their careers. With our past track record and experience we could support the success of many of the new generation of Artists.  

Suresh Thomas is known as a pioneer and maverick in music marketing.  After a span of over 20 years Suresh Thomas is looking to develop some new musical talent. He started the concept of “Artist Management” in India 30+ years ago, when no one was even aware of the term. He was the first individual to sign local talent and arrange for their recordings, promotions and stage performances. Some of the best examples of his success stories are Mika, Lucky Ali, Anaida, Mohit Chauhan, Nitin Bali, Sukhbir Singh, Mehnaz and Baba Sehgal.

The journey to stardom has never been easy. Many promising talents stumble and their dreams fizzle out along the way.  SYD will be taking a unique approach, blending traditional artist management with the current Social dynamics to make the journey from aspiring raw talent to stardom a lot more achievable.

Suresh Thomas says ‘Today, the music independent industry has grown and artist managers are everywhere. However, most of these artist managers are nothing more than glorified booking agents for gigs. A handful are actually involved with artist development and shaping careers. I foresee tremendous growth and demand for independent music and performers and a far greater demand than Bollywood music. Where there is growth, there is opportunity. The quest to produce a complete raw talent to Stardom is our mission’.

SYD is co-founded with Pradeep Joseph, an industry veteran with over 30+ years having interests in Publishing, Record label, Event management, etc. He’s committed to sculpting a talent agency that will have the best pool of musical talent in India. Pradeeep Josephsays ‘If your talent deserves a stage, we´ll build it for you !

The first signings of SYD are a Classical artist – Deobrat Mishra (Sitarist / Surbahar player / Music Composer) & Folk artist Achui Shimray (Musician / Producer / DJ /Tattoo Artist / Model)

Deobrat Mishra represents the 11th generation of the Banares tradition. He is also the son of legendary sitar maestro Padma Shri Shivnath Mishra ji, a legendary Sitarist.


Achui Shimray is the leader of ‘Featherheads’ the band, a collective of musicians rooted in their Naga heritage of North East India.
