We live in an age where true creativity and its' nurturing are rare; especially within the Muslim community. A young man in his early twenties is out to change all that.
ANX is the stage name of singer-songwriter, producer, poet, writer, speaker, and nasheed artist, Alman Chand Nusrat. Alman's talent has been witnessed by thousands and he is quickly gaining recognition for his work. The young artist born and raised in the United States and of Indian decent, is already being recognized as the next Sami Yusuf. ANX recently released volume one of his debut album, "Seconds to Sunset." The release will be followed by the launch of his poetry/spoken word album, "Reflections of a Rebel." Soon after will be the release of "Seconds to Sunset: Volume Two."
Within a year of striving for professional artistry, ANX has accumulated a fan base of over 10,000. The launch of his debut trilogy, with the help of the almighty, will increase this number exponentially. The goal is to inspire the Muslim youth to stay creative. It is ANX's firm belief that without creativity, a heart becomes hardened. The imaginative heart witnesses the greatness of God and in turn, is ultimately softened. With creativity and the remembrance of God fused together, the soul is able to take flight.
ANX has performed at various venues throughout the United States. His launch of "Seconds to Sunset: Volume One" was coupled by a national tour of the US sponsored by Islamic Relief. By being a part of this tour, Alman assisted in raising 1,000,000 dollars for charity efforts in Pakistan. He has also performed for organizations such as ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) and MYNA (Muslim Youth of North America), providing lectures for the latter. ANX has also been featured in various local digital and print publications throughout the world. All this within a year.
"Seconds to Sunset" was produced by Anas Canon who has had high profile clients including but not limited to: Lupe Fiasco, Native Deen, Common, Mos Def, The Black Eyed Peas, and more! The album also features Naeem Muhammad from Native Deen, Baraka Blue, Tyson Amir, and Amir Sulaiman. The album features artwork by the world renowned artist Peter Gould.
ANX is a poet, singer, rapper, writer, speaker, producer, artist, and entrepreneur. But above all, he is a lover of faith.. and that is what inspires his work.
"Faith is what pulls us through from every sunrise...to every sunset. From every sunset, to every sunrise...and without faith, we are lifeless".
