I play keyboards and lead guitar in the folk-rock / world-fusion band Clusters Of Grey. I also play keyboards for saragam group and other events as a solo musician. We play mostly small venue shows, but have played in arenas and auditoriums occasionally. Check out Clusters of Grey for details. Pink Floyd and The Doors are my biggest influence in music.

In 2010, Clusters Of Grey recorded their first EP titled “Rose”. It was released in iTunes, amazon.com, iLike and other online retailers in Spring of 2011. Capital-USA showed interest in the band in 2012 and helped release the single "The Reunion" in Fall of 2012. In 2013 Clusters Of Grey recorded the single "Thank You For Loving Me" at Cowtao Studio in Marietta, GA. In 2014 Rashid completed his "Modern Musician" specialization at the prestigious Berklee School Of Music Online. As part of the Capstone Project submission at Berklee - Rashid & Glenda re-recorded the song "If I Could" and received good reviews from their peers.
