AHI has a beautiful smokey voice. I was killing myself trying to think of who he reminded me of, and then it struck me, Rod Stewart. But his music, anthemic, determined and in the spirit of the self-help literature, is at times reminiscent of Coldplay. Its difficult to find this combination anything other than soothing and beautiful. Some of his tracks are so moving, they sound like classics in the vein of Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car. If one criticism could be made of some of his songs, its that they seem over-reliant on a repetition of the chorus, not enough meat on the verse and sometimes lacking a little variability in the structure of the songs, but that’s small change.
AHI’s new album ‘In Our Time’, is due for release via 22nd Sentry/Thirty Tigers on August 10, 2018
AHI will be touring the UK in September.
