First song recorded Aideu Timi for the collection Talent First in 1992. Back then I was in a band called Peace. Before that, I was in another band called The Bass in 1991, both times as a vocalist. First music video Miss Catwalk (also the first ever music video to be aired by Image Channel).

Stuff most people don't know about me I learnt the basics of thang-ka painting helping my father. I used to sing in Dabali restaurant in New Road (English, Nepali and Hindi cover songs) before I released my first album.

My mobile Sony Ericsson. Sunglasses from Vogue. I always carry my mobile, sunglasses, chapstick, necklace, and beads.

Besides music I worked in Food and Beverages (I did bartending for four years in Hong Kong). Instruments I play Guitar, drums and flute; but I love playing bass guitar.

Favourite flicks The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, The English Patient, Gladiator, Snatch, Full Monty, Trainspotting. Actress I'd go on a date with Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Pfeiffer. If not a singer I would have been an actor or an artist (probably thangka).
