Ahkinoah Habah Izarh, simply known as AHI (pronounced "I") is a talented singer-songwriter. In one word, AHI's music is “wholehearted.” His unique vocal performance with acoustic guitar in hand combines a voice of raw emotions with the words of a pure heart and the essence of an untainted sound to produce something truly thought-provoking, soul-stirring and unforgettable: his wholehearted BLUEBLACKmusic™ - The Deepest Of All Blues.
Accompanied by his wife Ahshatèn on the viola, theirs is a truly unique and soulful acoustic duet; accompanied by a full band, there is nothing quite like experiencing it live. Currently residing in Toronto, AHI is also the founder and producer of Oh So Beautiful™, a seasonal production putting the power of performance back into thehands of Toronto’s independent musicians, in association with Long & McQuade and D’Addario Canada. AHI has recorded 3 full-length albums to date, comprising his WHOLEHEARTED trilogy, and he continues to write, produce and record new music.
BLUEBLACKmusic™ is the trademark of AHI's music. It is his unique brand of passionate, edgy soul; a modern blend of the raw, sincerity of the Blues with the spirit and compassion of Negro spirituals.
In 2008, Ahkinoah H. Izarh (AHI) put that trademark to paper when he founded BLUEBLACKmusic™ as an independent production company and record label. Today, BLUEBLACKmusic™ stands as an advocate for independent artists and musicians, putting the power of performance back into the hands of the musicians, one stage at a time.
