Clinton Cerejo is known for his contributions in the music department for Indian films. He started out with sporadic recording, lending his voice to many advertisement jingles, during which period he has worked with music greats including Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani, Loy Mendonsa, Lezz Lewis, Ranjit Barot & Louis Banks. His contemporaries include K.K and Kunal Ganjawala, who went on to become playback singers. Clinton and Kunal have sung numerous jingles together. His big break arrived when A. R. Rahman overheard his vocals in an adjoining studio and soon offered Clinton the opportunity to work with him. Here on there was no looking back. Back in college days, he would often do jam sessions with his friend Siddharth Haldipur (Band of Boys ). It was during one such session that Amar Haldipur (Siddharth's father), who is a famous arranger and violinist, noticed Clinton and introduced Clinton to Anand Modak, the music director of the Marathi film `Mukta`. Clinton got his first chance to record a song in a recording studio. It was an English song for a Marathi film, picturised on an African-American.
