Tell us three things about yourself . . .

There’s nothing in the world I love more than a walk in the woods and a swim in the sea with my pup. I spend a silly amount of time producing music as it is the thing that gives me a deep sense of calm and also excites me at the same time. I get lost in it and I love that feeling. I have been a collector of flutes and whistles since I was a kid and own way more than any one person needs.

How would you describe your music?

My music is calm and deep. I love the feeling of being out in nature; seeing it’s colours and taking in its smells and sounds. It always resets me at a core level. I try to put that feeling into music and make sounds and songs that take the listener to a place, a different space. You might call it trance-like, but to me I see it as going to a place where I can fully let go into the sounds.

Who are your musical inspirations?

I always struggle with this question because there are so many. I grew up around Sean Nós singing at family gatherings and found the sense of emotion carried in a voice and this kind of storytelling woke something up in me that I’ve been exploring ever since, especially from the voices of my older relatives. When I was four, my father did a project with Seamus Egan, Johnny Cunningham, and an incredible group of other musicians and being around them, watching them play, and seeing their genuine joy in collaboration also lit something up in me and they have all remained important musical inspirations for me. I have a love of folk traditions of any kind, so as a teen a was drawn to classical Indian music and did a deep dive of study in India. Currently I listen to a lot of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and The Gloaming for their deep sense of space in their approach to music. The list goes on and on but that’s where I’m coming from.

What was the first gig you ever went to?

I went to many as a child but the first one I went to on my own was Nickel Creek. Chris Thile is still not quite mortal in my eyes!

What was the first record you ever bought?

I wish I could remember! Likely Solas as I was such a Seamus Egan fan. I was also very in love with James Taylor and Tracy Chapman from early on. There was a good amount of Shaggy, Brandi and Gorillaz in my childhood Walkman for rollerblading soundtracks.

What’s your favourite song right now?

Another impossible question! I’m definitely more of an album person than a song person. The Album Eco De Sombras by Susana Baca has been a dear friend this Summer.

Favourite lyric of all time?

"You’re in my blood like holy wine" and so many more from the magnificent Joni Mitchell.

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

So hard! Probably 20:17 from Trance Frendz by Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm.

Where can people find your music/more information?

On all the streaming platforms under Ajeet or Woven Kin. Also my website and @ajeetmusic on Instagram.
