If you take just one thing from AHI’s music, let it be this: you are not alone.

“No matter how low, no matter how defeated you may feel, you’re never really on your own in this world,” he explains. “We’re all connected to each other, and when you find your calling and your purpose and you tap into those connections, beautiful things start to happen.”

Prospect, AHI’s extraordinary new album, is proof of that. Recorded in Nashville with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Paul Mabury, the collection is bold and expansive, delivering on the promise of AHI’s first two critically acclaimed records with a captivating, immersive sound that showcases the raw power of his gravel-on-silk vocals like never before. The songs here are deeply introspective, looking inwards with piercing insight and unflinching honesty, and the performances are similarly direct and fearless, blurring the lines between roots, folk, pop, and soul as they grapple with pain and healing, faith and resilience, connection and identity. While much has been made of AHI’s years spent backpacking everywhere from the hills of Ethiopia to the jungles of Trinidad, Prospect is the story of a perhaps even more profound journey, an internal quest for understanding and self-reflection that’s yielded the most revelatory, relatable, and fully-realized work of the globetrotting singer/songwriter’s already-impressive career.
