Hi everyone. I want to start by telling you that I am so excited for this special interview because it’s like none I have done before. My guest today is a mega superstar who I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing on numerous occasions in the US, Canada, and now on Zoom, and he is being joined by his one and only mom. This show is called That’s Total Mom sense for a reason. I think this his first interview with his mom so it’s going to fun for all of us.

So the artist I’m talking about is Arjun Coomeraswamy – or just Arjun.

He is a London-based singer, songwriter and music producer. He has become known for his fusion of contemporary Western and Eastern sounds, combining soulful R&B with elements of South Asian music. This formula has made him a huge hit with Asian youth across the globe. As a pioneer in the Hindi/R&B Fusion genre, Arjun has set the standard for other young Asian artists now following in his footsteps.

He is a multi-instrumentalist, capable of playing the guitar, piano, bass, drums and flute, on top of singing and beat-boxing.

He is currently the most viewed UK Asian artist on YouTube, with approx one billion views, and has a strong social media presence with over 1.5 million Facebook fans and half a million Instagram followers.

He was signed to India’s biggest record label T-Series. ‘I’ll Be Waiting’, his first single released on the T-Series channel and racked up over 65 million views, charted at #1 in the iTunes India Chart and spent over 40 weeks in the UK BBC Asian Download Chart.

He signed with Island Records, a branch of Universal Music, in September 2016 and released his first single in 2017, his second single Vaadi in 2018 and his debut album “Closer to Home” that same year, which reached No 1 on the Itunes R&B chart in 24 hours.

He has a truly international fan-base, and as a result has had the opportunity to perform for fans all over the world to crowds of up to 200,000, in countries including the UK, Ireland, France, Holland, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, US, Canada, India, Sri Lanka, UAE, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Kenya, Tanzania, Mauritius, Suriname, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

086: Ali Levine — Taking Risks + Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone 1920 1080 Chase Jennings

Today I’m excited to feature a guest who is a known risk-taker and prides herself on living by her own terms. Ali Levine.

Celebrity stylist and motherhood/fashion/lifestyle expert Ali Levine believes that no matter where you roam, from the laundry room to the red carpet, authenticity is your superpower and “confidence is your best accessory.” Raised in the high-velocity fashion culture of New York City, a natural gift for style led Levine to opportunities working with international designers like Coach, Talbots, and the opening of New York’s flagship Target location. A transition to television/film took her to Hollywood, where she founded the Ali Levine Design headquarters, quickly establishing herself as LA’s “it” girl of celebrity styling with a star-studded portfolio that includes top names like Jesse McCartney, Arianny Celeste, Holly Robinson Peete, Joey King, Gretchen Rossi, Lisa Vanderpump and more. She rose to reality stardom with her Bravo show Stipped, which had exposed couple’s relationships wilee stripping them of everything they own – clothing, furniture, money, coveted possessions, to uncover what truly matters most.

After the arrival of her first child, daughter Amelia Rei, Levine wholeheartedly embraced the role of mompreneur/mommy influencer. She is now a mama of two and shares her real raw truth of motherhood. She is a sought-after motherhood style/lifestyle expert covered by Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, and LA Times, with design ideas featured on national network television and in print/online media outlets such as Real Simple, PopSugar, and FabFitFun. She is also one of Yahoo’s “Top Influencers to Watch and Follow in 2020.” The Ali Levine blog – which shares the unfiltered moment-to-moment evolution that is #MomLife, along with everyday style inspiration – earned a spot among the top 100 personal stylist blogs and has been named one of the top 40 LA fashion blogs. On the “Everything with Ali Levine” podcast, the New York hotshot-turned-Hollywood style maven delivers a real, raw look at her own motherhood journey amid the treasures she’s uncovered in the universal search for authenticity, spiritual wholeness, and happiness.
