Riaz Ahmad is a fresh new act with his debut EP out for release this February. The four tracks cover themes of family, migration and love with distinctive influences from modern folk and a contemporary twist from the likes of Moses Sumney and Bon Iver. Musically it’s an eclectic mix with a crisp blend of tabla and sitar-based fusion to jazz-folk tinged mandolin.
After opening for Jack Clarty on his UK tour last year and celebrated for his shows with his highly respected Beatles cover band, Riaz is known for his live performances and incredible voice. The newest single ‘Pray to God’ is a perfect example of his musicianship and pure tone which reflects throughout the whole EP.
“Let your brain get liberated by the power of Riaz Ahmad’s voice; He has such clarity of voice, he’s just a real talent; I just think he’s an amazing talent”BOBBY FRICTION, BBC ASIAN NETWORK
