“What Am I” is a song with a unique sound that made vocalist Edie Brickell famous, rewarding with a tone a simplistic expression that few can compare to.
The New Bohemians stepped away from their Ska beginnings but brought their distinct influence to their timeless hit “What I Am” in 1988. Edie Brickell & New Bohemians became a group that’d forever be known for their pure, psychedelic infused sound.
Bringing the best of rock, folk, blues, and jazz, Edie Brickell and New Bohemians sealed their place in music history as an alternative rock jam band unlike any other.
It was the band’s only hit, making this classic a one-hit-wonder that never charted in the top twenty, as VH1 requirement. It doesn’t need to, for the ska crossover will live on forever as a favorite.
