Hidden Gem: I.O.U. *everything music

July 27th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, R&B |

I.O.U.‘s genre is everything, meaning their music is a mixed bag, some you will really like, some not so much but overall you hear a new sound. Lots of potential from I.O.U. Here’s what their management had to say about the group on their debut album, B.O.M.Bs (Breaking Our Mind Barriers).


All the productions were done by I.O.U, meaning Inside Our Universe. With this album Jersey natives, Isaiah ‘Izee’, Andrew ‘Buck’ Buckner, and manager Charles ‘Chuck’ Ferrone set out to change mindsets in a world where genre is everything! I.O.U is soul music, it’s hip hop, it’s world music; to sum it up, it’s passion.
