i.e. Origin: From the Latin ‘id est’

Meaning: in other words

What happens when we separate the idea of artist & their music from their person? Are we able to connect with music more, or less, when it’s presented on a blank canvas? This was the concept behind I.E. the new musical project from the Sydney based artist, who wanted to literally present his music and craft ‘in other words’.

With various musical projects under his belt, I.E. is not this artist’s first foray into music. Drawing on experience writing & performing variations of hip hop, pop, dance & indie rock for himself & other artists, I.E.’s sound is eclectic, but deeply rooted in R&B and melodic trap beats. Each release from ‘Seperated’ to ‘Meanwhile’ are dark and moody, dripping with big bass & catchy hooks.

A multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, emcee, vocalist & producer, I.E. has spent the last decade developing his talent alongside friends & peers – B Wise, i.amsolo, BLESSED, Manu Crook$, Dopamine.

I.E. represents the listener, becoming a faceless expression of experiences & feelings to relate to. Who he might be, or who he might not be is beside the point.
