NYC-based Adam Ahuja is a jazz/x-genre touring and recording artist, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist, and creator of the #intheloop live-looping style.  During performances, Ahuja loops multiple instruments live on the spot: keyboards & key-bass, singing & rhyming, and beatboxing & drums, often loop recording audience members live on stage.  Adam is also the founder and consultant at the Infinity Gritty label, advising on strategy, ideation, and creativity.  

Press Release:

These are times of ubiquity.  Ideas are shared in an instant.  Communication is mass-scale, for better or for worse.  We can really only be in one place in one moment, however our digital reflections are exponentially approaching a plateau of reality.  They might never get there.  And while it may or may not get us any closer together, everyone is, almost, everywhere.


Adam Ahuja looks down at his keyboard. It contains all of the sounds that he needs.  Mini drum-pads are attached at the right side of the apparatus.  A microphone is set straight in front of the rig.  Above the keyboard sits a multi-track live-looping recorder, waiting to capture and replay anything that’s performed.  There isn’t a need for pre-recorded samples.  Years of innovation have planted the seeds, the table is set.  All of the music can be created from scratch, right here, right now, for the audience and with the audience.


Drawing influence from the spheres of jazz, rock, funk, soul, hip-hop, electronic, world, and some Vanilla Ice dance partying at age six, Adam Ahuja uses his musical toolset to meld a love for groove with an obsession with harmony, while flavoring compositions with metaphysically-bent singing and rhymes. 


Ahuja’s career path has careened; from pre-med and strategic policy consulting, to keyboard-freelancing the streets of New York City, to upstarting NYC-band ‘The Flowdown,’ to in-studio guitar work with Meatloaf, playing organ for Robert Randolph and the Family Band nationally, jamming with musicians like Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, Questlove of The Roots, and Kenny Wayne Shepard, and recently founding a music label and consultancy Infinity Gritty.  Along the journey, Ahuja has honed in the focus on his solo craftwork, heeding the inspiration of late mentor and former Blue Note Records CEO Bruce Lundvall: “never stop listening.”


Ahuja’s work interlace two styles: ‘live-looping,’ featuring a compact multi-instrumental setup used for single-take performances, and ‘band-style’ where Ahuja moves between keys, drum kit, bass, guitar, percussion, and vocals to gradually layer takes one instrument at a time into full tracks.

NYC-based Adam Ahuja is an x-genre live-looping artist, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist, and the Infinity Gritty label founder.  Ahuja’s music melds jazz, rock, funk, soul and electronic music into a fluid style.  When Adam plays live, he offers what he calls an #intheloop experience: one in which he performs and loop-records various instruments on stage, including keyboards, key-bass, drumpads and vocals, often inviting interactive participation from audience members.  Ahuja’s adept performances, charisma, and novel approach to the “one man band” paradigm have made him a widely viewed media presence, landing features in outlets such as Relix, Apple Music, Goldmine Magazine, and university workshops at NYU and Musicians Institute.  

NYC-based Adam Ahuja is an x-genre live-looping artist, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist, and entrepreneur who has drawn international recognition as a touring artist, composer, and producer.  



Ahuja’s influences range from from jazz, rock, world, funk, hip-hop, electronic, and some Vanilla Ice dance partying at age six, amalgamating a sound that melds a love for the groove, an affinity for harmonic exploration, and an expression of metaphysically-bent lyricism.  In 2017, Ahuja released the critically-acclaimed album “Ubiquity” via Infinity Gritty and joint-launched with Ropeadope Records, on which he composed and performed all music, including keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, percussion, voice, and wrote the lyrics.   


Ahuja’s keen sense of the contemporary music scene prompted him to establish Infinity Gritty, a global music label and consultancy.  The label focuses on pushing the creative limits of artistic expression at the intersection of jazz and beyond, and has landed features in Spotify’s State of Jazz playlist, Atwood Magazine, Mathematical Association of America, and others.



When Ahuja plays live, he offers what he calls a #intheloop experience: drawing upon a range of electronic and organic instruments to record and loop performances live, without the use of pre-recorded sampled parts.  Ahuja’s shows often involve interactive participation recording the audience members themselves, bringing them on to the stage and giving a personal connection to the performance.  


Ahuja’s adept performances and novel approach to the “one man band” paradigm has led to artist features in Relix Magazine, Apple Music, Goldmine Magazine, amongst others, and has led to hosting creativity and entrepreneurship-driven workshops at NYU Clive Davis Institute, Musicians Institute, University of the Arts, and US State Department-sponsored events.  



Along his career path, a few of Ahuja’s collaborative highlights include writing and recording in-studio guitar parts for rock-legends Meatloaf featuring Brian May of Queen, jamming on stage with musicians such as Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, Questlove of The Roots, and Kenny Wayne Shepard, opening for legendary jazz pianist Chick Corea, landing endorsement deals with Nord Keyboards (‘Artist of the Month’) and Motion Sound Amps, and co-founding and co-creating with NYC multi-genre project “The Flowdown.”   Ahuja was also a past musician-member of touring acts as such as Robert Randolph & Family Band, Ana Popovic Band, and Vanessa Collier Band.



Adam Ahuja has headlined or performed at a wide range of US and international festivals and venues, include Blue Note Jazz Festival (USA), Musikfest (USA), Victoria Jazz Festival (Canada), Tout por Tous Festival (France), Club Milla Night (Germany), Gypsy Jazz-Fest (New Caledonia), Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise (Caribbean), Great Mississippi Balloon Race (USA), Unifier Festival (USA), DiscJam Festival (USA), and Sofar Sounds (USA, Germany, Brazil).



As a consultant with a background in both creativity and strategy, Ahuja has advised organizations and individuals through an approach drawing from systems thinking, multiple-perspective comparison, sustainability, ideation, and creative inspiration.  Adam holds a Master’s in Public Policy (MBA) from University of Konstanz in Germany and BSBA in Management and Pre-Med from Bucknell University, and enjoys a good philosophical conversation every now and then.
