Biography

Chris Corner’s process of becoming IAMX has been theatrical, transcendent and communal. Androgynous and visceral, he has metamorphosed from small-town kid to international pop star with iconic trip-hop group Sneaker Pimps, to a creator of raw art that disrupts gender and genre. Fueling electronic experimentation with punk energy and confessional lyricism, Corner’s dark sound, performances, videos, fashion and persona are larger than life, iconoclastic and shockingly intimate. After releasing Kiss + Swallow in 2004 and moving from his native UK to Berlin, Germany in 2005, IAMX released six additional albums over the following eight years. In 2013 Corner started suffering from Chronic Insomnia and Depression, prompting a move to Los Angeles and yielding the album Metanoia in 2015. An intensely cathartic body of work, Metanoia represented a comeback and a turning point in Corner’s life. The album allowed him to explore themes of mental health that eventually led to partnerships with organizations like The You Rock Foundation, to start his own mental health podcast called HEADNOISE and to release HEADSTREAMS (Spring 2022), an art and poetry book on the subject. Since 2015 IAMX has released several more albums ranging from experimental electronica to the highly anticipated 2018 studio album Alive In New Light - to his 2020 acoustic album Echo Echo, which Corner co-produced with Grammy Award winning uber-producer David Bottrill (Tool, The Smashing Pumpkins, Mastodon). In 2021 the prolific artist delivered a long-awaited new album with Sneaker Pimps and a modular electronic album as IAMX, titled Machinate. Both have been released via his new record label UNFALL, which he founded alongside longtime IAMX collaborator and live bassist Janine Gezang, with the goal of supporting music with a real message and keeping revenue streams transparent and accessible for any artist UNFALL supports and releases. Corner is a heavily licensed artist, with 16 IAMX tracks on ABC’s series ‘How To Get Away with Murder’ alone, multiple songs on ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’, amongst many other top shows globally and numerous soundtrack and commercial contributions as Sneaker Pimps. As a video artist, Corner crafts stunning live visuals and music videos for IAMX and other acts such as his close friend Gary Numan. Just as the X in mathematics signifies the variable and unpredictable, Corner’s identity and artistry evolve through experiment and fierce independence. As a result, his work continues to deepen with his ever-expanding catalogue of projects.
