For more than 20 years, Tirthankar Poddar aka 2Blue has been unswerving focused on paying his respect to his roots, all channeled through a band that takes no prisoners. With a voice that can go from a whisper to a scream, and live performances well over 1000, 2Blue has helped celebrate new beginnings, annual days, award ceremonies, and farewells of thousands of people in MNCs, proprietary businesses, TV studios, night clubs, music festivals, schools, and colleges from Guwahati to Rajkot, Manipal to Varanasi, and all points in between 2Blue has performed with rock legends including Bumblefoot of Guns N' Roses, Paul Di'Anno of Iron Maiden, and George Lynch of Dokken. If awards are to be paid heed to, he has bagged 'Best Band' at ArtistAloud Awards, Mumbai and 'Asian Anthem of the Year' at AVIMA, Kuala Lumpur. But basking in past glory is not what 2Blue is about. Constant reinvention is. In 2013, 2Blue turned a new leaf, blending the tried and tested sounds of Bollywood with the rock he grew up on. Ever since, his new sound has been a decided asset in his inexorable rise to the top.Other job titles that 2Blue has held include Radio Jockey, Actor, and Vice President (of Marketing). Having played Judas in the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar, he has been trained by Alyque Padamsee, Shiamak Davar, Sabira Merchant, and Karla Klossher. 2Blue also played 'Tina Bilkis' in the ZEE5 original 'Akoori' thereby bringing attention to the the LGBT community in India. His high-octane live performances combine histrionics, storytelling, visuals, and music to create an experience that has been described as life-altering. In his own words, "Whether it is music I created or not, I will remain committed to performing live!"
