He first performed on stage at the age of 7 or 8, singing the Lata number "Sa re ga ma pa, pa, pa, ga ma re, ga re mere sang mere saajna." He also released a Punjabi album called Munda Southhall Da with T.

Singh joined Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s troupe and quickly became a music arranger, before heading to the south of India to look for work. At this time he did a film called Rakshagan.Singh got his break in a Madhuri Dixit film called Khilaaf, in which he sang the hit song ‘Aa ja sanam’.

But the singer himself realised that something was missing in his voice. He left his dream city to tour England and America to see, hear and understand the various forms of music. After this broadening of his musical horizons, he returned to Mumbai to kick-start his musical career.

His first effort in Hindi films, Aaja Sanam, went largely unremarked, even though the music carried the names of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Then, along came Dil Se. A. R. Rahman, always interested in something new, used Sukhwinder for the unforgettable "Chaiyya Chaiyya".

Sukhwinder is now highly regarded as a sensitive and eloquent singer. The other films that followed - including Taal, Biwi No. 1, 1947 Earth, Daag, Dillagi, Moksha, and Thakshak,"tere naam","apna sapna money money", "shadi se pehle" ,"shabd" ,"musafir", "chak de india", "black & white"- have made him a household name.

Sukhwinder owes a large part of his success to Rahman's encouragement, and makes no effort to gloss over that fact.Sukhwinder has strong opinions about writing music - he once stated that if he was ever involved in writing music for film, he would delve deep into the Indian musical landscape and not simply conjure up some digital tricks with pop and fusion.

Rahman and Sukhwinder are presently working closely together. The duo have decided to make music that is not tailor-made for films, but rather to venture into realms where they can truly express themselves.
