For positive vibes, look no further. The music by North Texas, singer-songwriter Rahim Quazi is firmly lodged within a classic sense of pop construction. Piano, guitar, and polished melodies with ’60s AM rock tendencies. But Quazi isn’t merely retreading the ground covered by his influences; his music is earnest and often austere, even as it holds your heart firmly in its grip and gently strums your heartstrings.
Quazi is working on his 4th solo album. The last one, Ghost Hunting, released in 2015, was nominated for two Grammys: Best American Roots and Best Engineered.
