Christopher Anthony Corner (born 23 January 1974) is an English record producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, singer and video artist. He was a founding member of the band Sneaker Pimps, and is now active with his solo project IAMX.[1]

He moved from London to Berlin in 2006, where he set up his IAMX studio for music and visual work. Nowadays he lives in Los Angeles. [2][3]

To date, Corner has released eleven studio albums, three with Sneaker Pimps – Becoming X (1996), Splinter (1999) and Bloodsport (2002) and eight as IAMX – Kiss and Swallow (2004), The Alternative (2006), Kingdom of Welcome Addiction (2009), Volatile Times (2011), The Unified Field, (2013) Metanoia (2015), Everything Is Burning (2016), experimental electronic album Unfall (2017) and Alive in New Light (2018).

Corner composed and produced the soundtrack to the film Les Chevaliers du Ciel (2005). It included Sue Denim and Placebo.[4] Many of his songs have been used in film and TV productions.

As a completely independent artist, Corner has cultivated an international following through maintaining a highly personal and close relationship with fans through social media and electrifying live performances that often find the artist in physical contact with his following. Through hosting meet and greets or just surfing the crowd, Corner's demonstrative passion for his fans wins him a fiercely loyal fan base that spans the globe.
