On My Own
Growing up in a home full of classical Indian music helped AJ Hans to develop a keen mind for performance and quality composition. After finding his wings with the sport of tennis, this young and multi-talented song-writer decided to not follow the professional athletic path laid out before him. Preferring to go to university, it was during his studies that a desire to become a performing musician began to fruit. This time though, he went for it, and with ample skills and a sporting attitude towards self-improvement, AJ Hans has made an awesome new song. So far, he's been in talks with Disney, ITV, and the BBC in conjunction with his abilities. Looks good, doesn't it?
The 3 and a half minute track opens with a strummed steel string acoustic guitar. It begins with a date, three years ago at the time of release. A definitive flavour of Ed Sheeran makes the R'n'B delivery of rhythm and vocal something to listen to and enjoy. The melody in the guitar moves gracefully from one chord to another while AJ's voice springs from tone to tone with ease. It breaks down to a heart-felt and sombre one to one with the subject of the song, it's about ending love, needing space, and time to find our own direction. We can't always keep coming back when we're casually rejected.
