You can`t run away from an exceptional gospel track, the rhythm and beat will catch up with you eventually. Why not surrender? Why resist the arrest of a quality Christian song?
A few months ago, I was locked up in my room, this was by choice, with headphones in my ears, fully immersed in InderPaul Sandhu`s music, "Money Aint A Thin`" (that song now head my UK hip-hop playlist), so far so good.
Its discovery wasn`t a head-hunting exercise or arduous search, the song chose me (I have YouTube`s suggested video algorithm to thank for this chance meeting).
Your guess is good as mine; "Money Aint A Thin`" was great, but I love me some Unique Creation, Feed`Em and Tneek tracks too.
Fast forward to Tuesday, while preparing for this blog post,
my thought went viral with questions, What and who inspires InderPaul musically? What song/album/collabo does he have next in the pipeline? What was his innovative process for creating a music track?
This questions and more, led to the pursuit of answers. You can eavesdrop on my conversation with InderPaul Sandhu, it`s a reading prescription you will find interesting.

7gospeltracks.com: What is your innovative process for creating a music track?
InderPaul Sandhu: Lately most of my tracks have come off the back of dreams I get. I have a great friend (King Nana) who is really good at interpreting dreams, he's also the owner of Victory Streamz. I usually leave conversations with him understanding my dreams and with song ideas.
7gospeltracks.com: What’s more important, gospel melody or lyrics?
InderPaul Sandhu: The message trumps everything, melody is important but the message trumps everything. You can make anything sound nice, I saw a guy just saying old american president names over a trap beat and it sounded dope it really did, but there was no message.
7gospeltracks.com: What song/album/collabo are you currently working on?
InderPaul Sandhu: I`m currently working on another single called Fountain Pen, which came out of a very interesting dream I had. I think it may be my best piece. Afraid I can't say anymore than that.
7gospeltracks.com: What do you do to relax when not on the move/ministering?
InderPaul Sandhu: To be honest this is something I'm still trying to figure out. As of recently I have tried to watch movies but I always feel as if I should be working. I take a lot of walks in the evening though but again that ends up with me being on the phone talking about music and making plans.
7gospeltracks.com: What piece of advice do you have for new or aspiring musicians what would it be?
InderPaul Sandhu: Don't try to be like anybody else there's a reason you are you and I am me. Trust God and His process.
