Ol' Sweet Day

With a voice like “gravel on silk”, Canadian alt-folk songwriter AHI (pronounced “eye”) has traveled over 100,000 miles, armed with an acoustic guitar and a voice like “gravel on silk”. With a sound as unforgettable as his journey, the soulful troubadour captured the hearts of music lovers around the world when his feel-good single Ol’ Sweet Day garnered millions of streams and broke the Billboard Spotify Viral 50, U.S. Viral 50, CMJ/Earshot, and Stingray charts, with zero marketing or promotion. Recently hand-picked for NPR’s acclaimed Tiny Desk concert series, AHI is now poised to make his mark as one of Canada’s most promising new voices with the release of his sophomore LP on Nashville’s Thirty Tigers in Spring 2018.
