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.
London-based alternative Folk/Hip-Hop duo iAm1 today announce their latest single “Whispers” available for free download via their Facebook fan page. “Whispers” is the follow up single to “The Movement” released in 2010 and is accompanied by an intimate live video.
iAm1 have spent the last few months in the studio crafting the new sound for their debut EP set for release early 2012. “Whispers” goes back to iAm1’s original acoustic roots showcasing lead singer Oli Rose’s natural and distinctive vocals mixed with Jamie’s emotional, inward looking rap style.
The beautifully shot live video for “Whispers” brings out the diverse and raw elements of the project and showcases iAm1 in their purest form. Check out the Video below!
