Biography

The Ironweed Project is the brainchild of renowned writer, producer and vocalist, Aniff Akinola, founding member of cult manc hip-hop outfit ‘Chapter and the Verse’, co-writer of a Guy Called Gerald’s classic house anthem ‘Voodoo Ray’, co-writer of Kirsty MacColl’s hit ‘Walking Down Madison’ and general co-conspirator of such 90’s electronic luminaries as The Orb, Steve Hillage and The Beloved.

Seeking inspiration for his latest venture, Aniff appears to have taken the same trip to the Mississippi crossroads as legendary bluesman Robert Johnson, but rather than sell his soul to Satan, he merely passed him a bottle of Bourbon and the pair bonded over a love of George Clinton, The KLF and the Delta Blues. Just as Johnson returned from the crossroads as the greatest bluesman in the Delta, Aniff returns home (his soul still intact) a transformed man - an electro-bluesman for the 21st century: ‘Ironweed.’

Get Involved…


The full album is due for release in Summer 2007, however, an instrumental/acapella version will be available to download from http://www.theironweedproject.com/pages/downloads.html & www.myspace.com/theironweedproject in March. In keeping with Aniff’s spirit of adventure and history of collaboration, the purpose of the instrumentals & accapellas is to invite musicians, vocalists, producers & artists from across the globe to put their own spin on the unique Ironweed sound.

    Mmhmm, I love this sound, thumping percussion, hot guitar licks and a rich bass vocal to go with it. Outstanding :)
