Early life and backgroundEdit

Kaur hails from Panipat, Haryana. Born on 26 September 1988, she started singing at the age of 5. It was her father who pushed her for reciting Gurbani. She learnt the Gurbani by herself and won accolades at the first attempt in competitions. She is an alumnus of DAV Centenary School, Panipat, Haryana and completed her M.Com. from S D (PG) College Panipat.

As she grew up, she decided to take up singing professionally. She trained under Ustad Puran Shahkoti from Jalandhar. Her version of the Gurbani released in India and she garnered tremendous appreciation for the same. She started reciting Gurbani at various events. Her siblings were also actively involved in the Gurbani recitation. Asees participated in a Punjabi reality show, Awaz Punjab Di, following which she came to Bombay and met various music composers.
