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’semotional, 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.

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 andJessie J.
This is not music strategized for a 'pop' audience now familiar with the blurring of styles thanks to media savvy artists and labels who recognize that a 'best-of' genres approach feeds instant gratification and chart success, it's just the sum of 2 diverse people who share a passion for creating music together without confines, then putting it out there on their own terms.
