|Birth name||Adiam Dymott|
|Born||5 May 1982|
Adiam Dymott (born 17 December 1982 in Uppsala, Sweden) is an Eritrean-Swedish singer. Dymott's first album, Adiam Dymott, debuted on 18 March 2009 with the singles "Miss You" and "Pizza". The self-titled album was released on Swedish indie label Razzia Records.
She, as well as her parents, are from Asmara, Eritrea and met in Italy. The couple moved to Uppsala, Sweden where Adiam was born in 1982. According to Dymott, her mother named her "Adiam", the name of an Eritrean queen. Dymott started buying records first from the hip hop-section with favorites Notorious B.I.G. and The Wu-Tang Clan. At the same time, she describes herself as having been an "MTV child," listening to Nirvana and Garbage.
At 18, Dymott came to Stockholm where she took her first steps as a vocalist. Because of her job as a receptionist at a studio, whenever the songwriters/producers needed a singer they would ask her to enter the studio. Eventually, these demo recordings led to a contract with Razzia Records. She used to hang out with hip hop artists such as DJ Taro, Mange Schmidt, DJ Viet-Naam and Thomas Rusiak. Once Dymott and Rusiak realized they both shared a love for rock music they decided to work together.
Dymott's song "Miss you" is on the FIFA 10 OST. It was the first single from her debut album released in March 2009. According to MTV Iggy, the song was performed for the first time live at the prestigious gala P3 Guild 2009 at Scandinavium, Gothenburg.
Dymott's touring band consists of herself on lead vocals, Thomas Rusiak on guitar and backup vocals, Harri Mänty on guitar, Mattias Bärjed on guitar, Inge Johansson on bass and Fredrik Okazaki Bergström on drums. Razzia Records refers to Dymott's band as an "all-star band" because all of its members have musical careers apart from Dymott's. Thomas Rusiak is a Swedish rapper, hip hop producer, musician and singer. Harri Mänty is a former member of Kent, a mid-'90s Swedish rock band. Mattias Bärjed is a member of the Swedish rock band The Soundtrack of Our Lives. Inge Johansson is a member of The (International) Noise Conspiracy. Fredrik Okazaki Bergström is a member of a band that debuted in June 2008 called I Are Droid. Rusiak also produced the debut album, Adiam Dymott.
