iAm1 – Whispers (Live Acoustic)

1 12 2011
iAm1 is the sum of 2 people, singer song writer Oli Rose and MC Jamie Wallace. The two met whilst studying music at Westminster University in 2008 when iAm1 was born. From diverse backgrounds and influences, they merge Oli’s traditional song writing roots with Jamie’s original flows and self inflicting lyrics, bursting on to the London scene in 2008 with a set firmly rooted in acoustic/spoken-word, as comfortable in a folk setting as they were with a grime audience.
In 2009 they released their first single, a remix of “Night Time Calling”, featured on RWD, NME and Grime Daily, followed by their last single “The Movement” produced by Nocturnal (Dizzee Rascal, Tinie Tempah)  which was the first track ever created using a PC game, then released worldwide exclusively on EA’s Games title APB. The single was also heavily supported by Kiss FM and RWD. 
They quickly established themselves on London’s live circuit during 2009/10 selling out headline shows at many of London’s key venues including Ronnie Scott’s, Camden Barfly and Hoxton Bar and Kitchen whilst also supporting artists such as Tinie Tempah and Jessie J.
This is not music strategized for a ‘pop’ audience, it’s just the sum of 2 diverse people who share a passion for creating music together without confines and putting it out there on their own terms.
