World music artist, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ajeet recently released “Water and Sky,” featuring Sam Garrett, a track lifted from her upcoming album, Let It Breathe, slated to release on October 14.
An ode to her dying grandmother, after writing the song, Ajeet shared it with Sam Garrett. Inspired by the song, he wrote his own verse for it and joins her on the track.
Presently completing her Master’s in music production and engineering at Berklee, Ajeet writes, produces, and engineers all of her music. She began releasing music in 2013. With seven albums and more than 70 million streams on Spotify, Ajeet has toured the world, collaborated with Trevor Hall and Snatam Kaur, and had her music hit the top spot on iTunes’ World Chart, as well as #4 on Billboard’s New Age Chart.
“Water and Sky” rolls out on soft, low-slung tones, followed by Ajeet’s gentle, bewitching voice, smooth and oh so expressive. When Sam’s vocals enter, the two voices blend together, forming indulgent layers of exquisite harmonies.
As the tune advances, it gathers round resonance, gliding, drifting and floating on cashmere leitmotifs dripping with delicious, beautiful sensations and silky textures.
“Sing to me my dear / She says / Open the door to me my love / My wings are ready to fly / Open the door and let me see / What is behind these eyes … The ocean is calling is calling / She’s calling she’s calling / It is the ocean that I crave.”
At once elegant and graceful, “Water and Sky” is gorgeously wrought, delivered through the haunting, alluring voices of Ajeet and Sam Garrett.
