Brooklyn native Aja Monet continues to set herself apart, as both a poet and vocalist. Her latest release, “Handful of Hurricane,” is a somber listen, featuring emotive instrumentation that draws from rock, jazz, and blues. Aja has a knack for finding production that truly enhances her poetry. She is adventurous with her music, not resigning herself to simply delivering poetry over beats. Harry Belafonte describes Aja as “the true definition of an artist,” and we’re inclined to agree.
“Handful of Hurricane” will be featured on Aja’s forthcoming Courage EP, which is set to release in November. Look to hear this talented, internationally acclaimed wordsmith and creative mind take us in new directions when Courage releases. We’re happy to be premiering “Handful of Hurricane.” Stream below, and find out more about Aja at ajamonet.com.
