Here's my interpretation of an 18th century English pastoral hymn using my Folk, Blues and Indian influences... I know, a bit unexpected, but it all came about when the vicar at my local Church asked me to sing a traditional hymn at last year's Christmas service - but to do it using my own musical style.
'Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing' is a Christian hymn written by the 18th century pastor and hymnodist Robert Robinson. Penned in1757, the hymn is set to an American folk tune known as "Nettleton".Ajay’s sound resonate'
The challenge of musically combining English Pastoral with American Blues and Indian Folk actually came together quite beautifully in the end, so I decided to record it. I like to think of this version as an example for inclusivity in these divisive times.
