The third solo album by IAME (pronounced 'I Am Me') is called 'Lame' - a title inspired by a common misprint of his name and his general sentiment towards popular culture. This multi-textured album shows the depth and skill of the Portland, Oregon based artist. A member of Northwest supergroups Sandpeople and Oldominion, he has spent the last two years recording this very personal yet entertaining album. Lame shifts between heavy, thought provoking subject matter, detailed narratives, and tongue in cheek commentary. Lame is entirely produced by Smoke M2D6, a fellow Oldominion member whose inventive beats have helped define the sound of Northwest hip hop. For this album he composed a diverse, genre-bending assortment of tracks filled with live instrumentation, ethereal melodies, and hard-hitting drums. Elements of blues, soul, epic rock, and electronica all combine seamlessly to create a truly unique listening experience.
