With a voice like "gravel on silk", indie-soul/alt-folk songwriter AHI (pronounced 'eye') is a rare talent with the keen ability to deliver a story with the ease and familiarity of an old friend. Favouring passion over precision, it's easy to see why comparisons to Richie Havens, Ray LaMontagne and Tracy Chapman are common for this soulful troubadour.

From Brampton, ON, AHI has independently toured over 50,000 miles: through the vast woodlands of Canada and the neon lights of Nashville, to the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and eventually beyond the Atlantic to the brick lanes of London. Along the way, he has recorded with leading acoustic sessions across the UK and Europe, but none has been more viewed than a simple home video of his stunning rendition of Bob Marley's '‘No Woman No Cry', filmed in a London alleyway and accompanied by his three-year-old daughter. The video caught the attention of the Marley family who featured it on the official BobMarley.com website and sent AHI a personal note from Mrs. Rita Marley herself - an unparalleled experience for an artist who cites Bob Marley as his greatest musical inspiration.

AHI's Indie Soul EP was one of CBC Radio One's top 10 records of the year, and he has been recognized and awarded by Folk Alliance International, Nashville Songwriters Association International, the Songwriters Association of Canada, and the Canada Council for the Arts.

For his debut full-length 'We Made It Through The Wreckage', AHI has created an entirely "new genre": blending folk, soul and rock, and topping it off with a vocal performance to be expected from a seasoned powerhouse rather than an indie debut.

The feel-good single Ol' Sweet Day broke the Billboard Spotify Viral 50 Chart and hit #34 on the US Viral 50 without any promotion or marketing. The track took off on playlists worldwide and surpassed 1 million streams. As a finalist in the Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class, it's not hard to see why AHI is one of Canada's most promising emerging acts.
