AHI: New Album 'In Our Time'
AHI is a Canadian singer-songwriter who has delivered a stomping sophomore album ‘In Our Time.’
His warm yet rich voice is contrasted with the occasional huskiness which comes through, giving his voice a unique sound. The recordings sound like a live gig – not over produced, but exactly how it would sound on a live stage. This charming humanistic edge to the music makes the album a soothing winner.
Title track ‘In Our Time’ is a mellow track. It doesn’t showcase a huge range, but that’s not needed to demonstrate the message of the song. ‘Made It Home’ is the lead single off of the album, which is a tune that showcases best his musicality, where aside from the featured violins which give it a sense of ambience, the main focus of the song is his vocals and poetic lyrics.
An album made largely of ballads, he still manages to create a lively, upbeat signature sound through his use of live instruments with the band behind him. Most notably, his guitar playing provides a rough, old school country rock edge to the music.
He introduced his new music to London with a show at Omeara earlier in the week. ‘In Our Time’ will definitely see AHI step in to the forefront of the live music scene in the months coming up.
