Rolling Stone Music Magazine in India has favourably featured Nikhil’s music several times: Neha Sharma from Rolling Stone said his “strength as a songwriter is well established in his numerous gripping compositions. Most of his songs shiver with this arresting melancholy as his falsetto glides over twangy guitar riffs”. India Today also included Nikhil as part of their “Faces of the Future,” and he has featured on MTV’s COKE Studio series and Sofar Sounds.
