Thompson’s music holds the banner of a new generation, a generation that celebrates a joyous present and anticipates an enlightened future. Anger and dissatisfaction are now so commonplace that they attract little attention, and cause even less provocation—they have no place in this wise new world. Instead, Thompson’s textured voice—part crooner, part folkstress—sings of golden dreams and sculpts broken spirits into polished songs of beauty. “I don’t really make [music] just for myself,” she says. “I really love relationships and connecting with people.” - Matt Basheda - NoVa Magazine

I AM LOVE (Philadelphia, USA)
england-fahneI Am Love was a big folk-gypsy band. But now it's turned into something that can do all of that and more with less members.
Yes, the band has a new sound. But that's due to the three members drawing from their favorite styles of music, and making their own unique musical identity.
Front-man Joshua Christopher's musical tastes lean towards the theatrical, classic indie music, and vaudevillian. Bassist Will Whitmire goes for the heavier stuff like grunge and psychedelic-surf rock, and drummer Kris Jackson's tastes venture into the spacious, melody-driven, rhythmic, and anything psychedelic. The band's sound is defined by the interweaving of all those genres. “We definitely write songs with a pop/rock formula,” Kris explains. “But the songs themselves are collages of every style of music that we love.”
The three have known each other for a while which has resulted in them forming a very brotherly love for each other. 
“What we're doing is weaving a web of genres that blends innovation through classic styles and movements with the game changing cutting edge of the modern world of music” Kris explains.
------------------------------- German version -------------------------------
Bei I AM LOVE treffen die unterschiedlichsten musikalischen Geschmäcker aufeinander: Während Frontmann Joshua Christopher sich vor allem am Musical und klassischen Indie orientiert, hegt Bassist Will Whitmire eine Vorliebe für Grunge und Surf-Rock. Drummer Kris Jackson mag alles Psychedelische und Rhythmische. Aufgrund dieser Unterschiede entsteht eine für diese Band ganz eigene klangliche Collage. In erster Linie ist der Sound von I AM LOVE als Pop/Rock zu beschreiben, doch die Einflüsse der einzelnen Bandmitglieder sind nicht zu überhören. Die meisten der Texte handeln von Christophers eigenen oft schmerzlichen Erfahrungen, wie zum Beispiel die Vergewaltigung seiner Schwester, der Missbrauch in seiner Kindheit, der Selbstmord eines Freundes. Den Mut, sich selbst in der Musik mit solchen Themen zu konfrontieren fand Christopher nach einem Besuch auf Haiti nach dem Erdbeben 2010. 

Erste Erfahrungen sammelte die Band im Osten der Vereinigten Staaten mit Konzerten und Straßenmusik, bevor sie nach vier Jahren ihr erstes Album veröffentlichten. Die „Songs & Whispers“ Tour bestreitet I am Love als Duo bestehend aus Frontman Joshua Christopher und Drummer Kris Jackson.

Influences: Tom Waits, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, and 50’s and 60’s Motown

“i am Love is the Bulls in the 90s, but everybody wears 23 and wins the MVP. It’s an absolutely beautiful project from top to bottom. I can’t call it perfect, but I can call it 4.5 out of 5 stars.”
Look to the Cookie blog

“Every now and then there comes a band that floats between genres, and all you can really say is that the music makes you feel genuinely warm and fuzzy inside — i am Love’s “Pillar of Salt” is a perfect example of that.”
- Nicole Ortiz, The Wild Honeypie (Nov 20, 2014)
