Bel Heir, A.M.I.M.
Kansas City, MO, 64111
This event is 21 and over
Since forming in 2012, Sir Sly have forged their singular sound by drawing upon each member's long=honed musical talents: Jacobs's introspective yet infinitely searching lyricism, Suwito's in-studio ingenuity, and Coplen's sophisticated musicianship and sense of songcraft. Orange County natives and friends since high school, Jacobs and Coplen connected with Suwito through the local music scene. Their early collaborations yielded songs like "Ghost," a Neon Gold release that quickly earned buzz online. After making their Cherrytree Records debut with the Gold EP in 2013, Sir Sly put out You Haunt Me (which reached #14 on Billboard's Alternative Albums chart) in September of the following year.
Sir Sly will be releasing the follow up to their debut album this year on Interscope Records.
Bel Heir is a project that has existed for over 6 years. It has had several other names and several other members in the past. We feel we have finally reached a point where we can bring it to the public. The music created and presented has never felt more natural.
We have spent countless hours in a studio outside of Philadelphia developing and perfecting the sound we were looking for. We created an enormous amount of material and finally decided to release it, but in a different manner than many are used to today.
We will be digitally releasing a single on the first Tuesday of every month for a full year. As with the traditional 45 vinyl releases, each single will have an A-side and B-side (2 tracks). We hope you will join us on this journey.
Chadwick C. Veach, also known as A.M.I.M., is a singer-songwriter/producer based out of Kansas CIty, MO. He independently released his self-titled debut EP in 2011 with producer Josh Barber and fellow musicians Jake Hayde, Jeremy Tracy and Josh Veach. In no time at all A.M.I.M. was hitting the KC clubs hard and sharing the stage with respected acts all across the board such as Innerpartysystem, Graffiti6, Eye Alaska, Nico Vega, Saosin, Parachute and Eve 6.
Let's rewind. In 2010 Chadwick was ready for something new. He needed a change and a challenge. It was time for some fresh scenery, different sounds, and new methods all together. Obviously, there was just one option.. That was for him to move in with his older brother, knock down a wall to create a new "beat lab", teach himself to play piano and begin reading "Protools For Dummies". After a few weeks of solitude he had written and recorded his first batch of songs which actually made the debut EP. He began his grind playing solo shows accompanied by backing tracks he previously recorded. He called himself A.M.I.M., which stands for 'Allow Me to Introduce Myself'. After a brief stint of shows to follow the EP release, A.M.I.M. was ready to write more music, plain and simple.
Get ready for the new release of "X's" this Spring and until then enjoy the official music video for the the new single, "Turn Off The Lights", produced and directed by Chadwick's brother from another mother, Dustin Hart Racen of Fountain Town Media!
