The story begins in 2003, with my first singing lesson.
I was the kid who didn't really fit a genre.
Trained in Indian classical music, but broke free of the style.
Dove into orchestral music and broke it from inside.
Found my place in R&B and now I'm breaking its borders.
A medical student and singer/songwriter, am.i brings his background in Western and Eastern classical music to R&B music, turning poetry into songs. His search for meaning in music reflects through his sound design - ethereal vibes and new-wave chords.
