AHI
 
 

Few artists leave such an impression that you’ll never forget the exact moment you first heard them. With a voice like “gravel on silk”, Canadian songwriter and independent recording artist AHI (pronounced “eye”) is one of those rare finds.

From humble beginnings in Brampton, Ontario, AHI has taken his passion and his guitar over 50,000 miles through the vast woodlands of Canada and across the Atlantic to the brick lanes of London and the highlands of Ethiopia, and his passionate live performances have captivated audiences at every turn. Along the way, AHI has recorded with leading acoustic sessions Ont’ Sofa (London), Hauskonzerte (Münich), Cardinal Sessions (Köln), Southern Souls (Toronto), SOFAR Sounds (Nashville), Rockstone Sessions (Netherlands) and more.

AHI returned to find his Indie Soul EP (2014) on CBC Radio One’s top 10 Toronto records of the year, and his stunning rendition of Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman No Cry’ featured on the official BobMarley.com website with a personalized note from Mrs. Rita Marley herself – an unparalleled experience for an artist who cites Bob Marley as his greatest musical inspiration.

 

 

AHI has since been recognized and awarded by Folk Alliance International, Folk Music Ontario, Nashville Songwriters Association International, the Songwriters Association of Canada, and the Canada Council for the Arts, and he is a Top 10 Finalist of the 2017 Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class, establishing him as one of Canada’s top emerging acts.

With the release of his debut album, We Made It Through The Wreckage, AHI blends folk, soul and rock to deliver a performance worthy of a seasoned vocal powerhouse. AHI’s voice will stop you in your tracks, but it’s his timeless songs that will hold you there and leave you wanting more.
