I.Am.Ueno started rapping at a very early age. Initially, it was just something to pass the time, but later, it became something that would go on to change the course of her life. As a female underground rapper, she goes to great lengths to create a unique sonic narrative and works hard to find a natural place in the music scene, especially in a genre that has been primarily male dominated. She quickly proved her talents and has shown the world that she means business with her flow and sound. Her persona is indeed a strong testament to her artistic expression, as U.E.N.O. actually stands for "Until Everything Numbs Over,” which means music like her drug.
Since the start of her career, I.Am.Ueno has been busy creating amazing songs, including her singles "Flight" (featuring Haverland) as well as "Snow," her holiday snag that has found success through tv commercial broadcasting since it’s launch.
I.Am.Ueno's newly released EP "The Transition", is a great example of her sonic vision, marking a really unique step forward in her artistry; her sound is becoming increasingly more personal and defined, one track at a time. This EP marks I.Am.Ueno’s expansion as an artist, as well as showcases her ability to reach a large audience with her music.
I.Am.Ueno is quickly generating a powerful buzz around her sound. Her inspiration from artists as diverse as Missy Elliott, Future, Kendrick Lamar, and Tyler the Creator has influenced her distinctive approach to songwriting. I.Am.Ueno is an emerging artist you definitely want to keep your eye on!
