I M U R

Story

Blending strength with vulnerability and intimacy without inhibition I M U R’s intoxicating songs touch on introspection, sex, substances, and heartache. Fitting, because their unique blend of electronic soul is both seductive and addicting.

I M U R (I am you are), is an East Vancouver live electronic act with a hybrid sound influenced by 90’s hip-hop/r&b, electronic, experimental, and soul. The band consists of producer Mikey J Blige on live beat composition and electric guitar, singer-songwriter Jenny Lea on keys, vocals, and looping, and multi-instrumentalist Amine Bouzaher on electric violin and bass.

Their debut EP “Slow Dive” (released Aug. 2015), garnered much acclaim from the Vancouver underground scene, and recently landed them #5 in Billboard’s Global Viral Top 50 charts. Hip Hop Canada praised them for being “at the front of the pack” of a growing community of independent artists producing quality projects and curating quality live performances.

Since their conception in 2015, I M U R has played Shambhala Music Festival, World Ski & Snowboard Festival and Rifflandia, as well as a handful of grassroots festivals in BC and Alberta. Most recently they’ve shared the stage with renowned electronic artists such as Lido and Tennyson, secured sync placements with outerwear giant Patagonia, and were listed as one of “Vancouver’s Top Acts to Watch Out For in 2016” by Winniecooper.net, in addition to receiving praise in Noisey, Exclaim!, Hiphop Canada, and Beatroute Magazine.
