With his single mother's encouragement, shy and self-doubting RJ picked up music through YouTube and fell in love with singing and songwriting.
This biomedical science graduate from University Tunku Abdul Rahman, Kampar made a name for himself in his sophomore year when he joined the acoustic band Virgin Boys as lead vocalist. Since graduating, RJ has performed in various venues — from busking at night markets to featuring at festivals and concerts. He is known as "Malaysia's Bruno Mars" for his energy and soulful voice, while his songwriting draws comparisons to Ed Sheeran's.
Music got RJ through depression, so he wishes to give back by sharing the joy of performing and inspiring people to believe in their dreams.
