Were it not for seeing them perform in Franklin, Tennessee during the red carpet premiere of the movie “Elizabethtown”, I probably would have never found this band.
As far as indie music goes… this stuff ROCKS!
Following are a TON of photos we took “front & center” when I-Nine kicked off the movie premiere at Franklin Cinema the other night…
I Nine On The Red Carpet
First, I just have to say, the band members themselves are entirely charming individuals… each and every one of them.
Carmen Keigans – vocals
Brian Whitman – guitar
Bryan Gibson – cello
Matt Heath – bass
While I didn’t personally meet them, these guys appeared to be down-to-earth, one with their fans, and genuinely appreciative of their inclusion on the “Elizabethtown” soundtrack.
They also connected really well with their fans — new and old.
Highlights Of Their Performance
Following are our personal video and photos from their Franklin, Tennessee performance on Sunday, September 18, 2005.
First, The Video…
Now, The Photographs…
I Nine Fans & Followers
Hollywood movie producer, director, and screenwriter Cameron Crowe took Carmen Keigans and her I Nine bandmates under his wing during the premiere of “Elizabethtown”, where they performed their song that’s featured on the movie’s soundtrack.
Fun Stuff About “I Nine”
Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, I Nine‘s music is considered “acoustic alternative rock”.
Their sound is one-of-a-kind, completely original and uniquely their own.
The members met at USC in September 2003 and formed the band Isle 9. Unfortunately, this name was taken, so they changed it to I Nine. The name stuck, and is quickly becoming a well-known entity around campus. A couple of the members’ friends got together and created a Facebook group to help them gain some publicity. What began as a joke is now a group with more than 1,000 members. —Daily Gamecock
