ADAM AHUJA

KEYBOARDIST

Adam Ahuja is an NYC-based keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist artist who draws jazz, rock, funk, electronic, world and hip-hop styles into a fluid approach. Performing both solo using live-looping and with his own group, Adam's music highlights textured harmony, an affinity for groove, singing and rap vocals, and inspired improvisations.

Adam has performed his original music at venues such as The Blue Note Jazz Club (NYC) and currently also performs as an international-touring keyboardist in Ana Popovic Band. Adam is a previous member of Robert Randolph and the Family Band, having jammed the stage with musicians Kenny Wayne Shepard, Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, Questlove of The Roots and others. Adam has contributed as a studio musician to recordings such as Meatloaf's Hang Cool Teddybear (guitar) produced by Rob Cavallo of Warner Music Group and has collaborated under Musical Director Dennis 'Doc' Williams of The O'Jays. Adam holds an Artist Endorsement with Nord Keyboards. Adam is also the foudner of the Ropeadope Records act The Flowdown and regularly plays with labelmates Escaper and Kuf Knotz. Adam can also currently be heard on the road with Monotronic, a new world-electronic project out of NYC. ​

Adam's aim is to approach music more and more in the way that one may speak a language, or watch a river - at ease in it's natural flow. Ultimately, Adam plays music to inspire a sense of inner joy, in the hope that this joy can also inspire others in their own lives. Adam also holds a Master's in Public Policy from University of Konstanz in Germany and Bachelor's in Management from Bucknell Univesity, and enjoys a good philosophical conversation every now and then.

"Very exciting live, the writing is impressive and the musicians are at a very high level."

- Bruce Lundvall, President/CEO Blue Note Label Group, in reference to Adam’s music with "The Flowdown."
