IAMTHELIVING (Rian Peters @iamtheliving) is a London-born, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter, producer, and performer.

“‘The Weekend’ is one of my favorite songs. Everyone always looks forward to Friday. It doesn’t matter what industry you work in. It’s just a happy and uplifting song about the weekend. Let’s go out and enjoy life!” — IAMTHELIVING stated

“The Weekend” is a celebration of life and joy. The song contains a propulsive beat with funkified guitar and elated vocals, charging up a danceable and celebratory refrain meant to be sung aloud either on the way to the best night of your life or as the sun comes up.

Nebra Sky all comes from my mind and creativity. This is the music inside of me. It comes from my spirit and my soul. It’s a reintroduction.” – IAMTHELIVING stated

Nebra Sky, Pt. 1” EP drew listeners into IAMTHELIVING’s world. Tracks such as the opener “Can’t Be Replaced,” the string-boosted “Calloused Heart,” the rabble-rousing “Rockin’ City London,” and tender “Make It Home Alive” with Jake Isaac assembled a multi-faceted mosaic of his artistry, encompassing cinematic soundscapes, skyscraping choruses, and buoyant bass-driven grooves.
