Born and bred in Brighton byan equally artistic mother, IYAMAH found her community in her city's diverse music scene and was inspired to write her own songs. She now cites Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse as inspirations to her raw Neo-Soul sound. Being immersed in Brighton’s club scene as an adolescent led her to write top-lines for drum 'n' bass features, later guesting on the track 'Senses' by heavyweights My Nu Leng which she performed at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and SW4.
Following on from her singles ‘Cryptic Love’ and ‘Silver Over Gold’, her debut EP cements IYAMAH as one of the UK’s hottest new exports. With Maverick Sabre, Sam Wills, Charlie Perry and Tom Guy on the credits, ‘Truth EP.1’ is a project where its richness is evoked without being overproduced or too polished carried by strong melodies and IYAMAH’s honeyed tone.
