Citing Alicia Keys and Adele as her earliest musical influences, Brighton-based vocalist Iyamah has delivered her soulful new single ‘Seasons.’ Set for release on 25th October, the track follows a long and rich music history for Iyamah, who first picked up the piano at the age of 13, starting to write songs after her teacher convinced her of her talent.
Growing up on the sounds of African drumming and reggae music, Iyamah developed a strong love for neo-soul, hip hop and the likes of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu, as she started writing toplines for drum & bass features, whilst immersed in Brighton’s club scene.
With production from artist/producer Sam Wills and LA-based producer, Kojo, her stunning vocal alongside her dynamic blend of hip-hop, soul and jazz, serves as an anthem about change in life and love.
Possessing the kind of natural musical and lyrical prowess that seems to have emerged fully-formed, Iyamah has already performed alongside Kojey Radical and Poppy Ajudha at the Wave Magazine launch, supported artist Mahalia on her UK tour and US artist Masego on his European tour.
Following on to a sold out London headline show herself, Iyamah is undoubtedly a name you’ll be hearing much more from.
