In 'Prospect,' AHI lives like someone before his time is counting on him - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

There’s a line in the song “Prospect,” from my guest AHI, that gets at the heart of his new album of the same name.

“I just want to live like someone before my time is counting on me”

It’s not just that AHI (pronounced Eye) is standing on the shoulders of giants, he also sees himself as the fulcrum between the past and the present — that every moment before our existence has led to now. The album, informed by the past, is paving the present on the road to the future. Those are high stakes for Prospect, his third album, produced in Nashville by Paul Maybury. It’s up to the task, with personal stories of growth delivered with his soaring vocals and an expanded palette of instruments and sounds.

We talk with AHI about how he was inspired by family that came long before him, how traveling the world helped him shift his perspective, and what happens when you write a song that ends up mirroring a real-life event that happened in the city you call home.
