Immersed in the festival culture, Iyamah was raised by her artistic mother, who encouraged her with a creative upbringing.

Iyamah was inspired by empowering female artists and since moving to London at 19, developed her taste for Neo-Soul and hip hop.
Her first single, Cryptic Love in 2018 and has become one of the UK’s most exciting up and coming artists in the scene and describes her sound as ‘Rootsy Soul’, a combination of her favourite genres.
