Kashyap is a graduate in English Literature from Lady Shriram College, Delhi, after which she did her masters in mass communication from the Indian Institute of Mass Communication. Her singing career started in school when she did the All India Radio signature tune. She has spent the last decade captivating the audience with music that "focuses on truth, life and beauty".
She was first noticed during the world's longest dance party held at Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in New Delhi. Her first composition was "Sajna... Aa Bhi Jaa" in Waisa Bhi Hota Hai, which gave her a lot of publicity. After that her two albums Nazakat and Hakim Tara Chand hit the market, which added more glitter to her career. Known for her sultry voice, flawless guitar playing and dynamic stage presence, Kashyap is constantly on the move, bringing her mesmerizing music to live venues all over the world.
She was named "Singer of the Nation" by B4U music channel. Her debut release "Ho Gayi Hai Mohabbat" earned her a Channel V award. In 2003, she was nominated for a Hero Cycles Stardust Award for her song "Sajna... Aa Bhi Jaa".
