Dami Im describes her time at Sony as ‘a toxic environment’

Dami Im has given a scathing assessment of her time at Sony Australia.

The X Factor winner parted ways with the label in 2020 after waging a six-year struggle to make original music.

Instead, Dami says she was forced to make a string of cover albums – 2016’s Classic Carpenters and 2018’s I Hear A Song – and eventually left the label when she refused to record a third album in 2019.

Speaking to The Sunday Project, the 34-year-old revealed it took courage to discuss her struggles with the label in her memoir Dreamer.

“It was quite difficult to talk about, but I really had to write about it in my book,” she said.

“It was a toxic environment at Sony and I had days where I was locked in the toilet just crying because it was just so psychologically draining.”

Dami went on to explain that she has made albums and music videos that have been “destroyed” and never released – some she has never seen or heard herself.

“It takes me a lot of time and a lot of teamwork to put this together, just to delete it and cancel it, throw it in the trash can with no one ever seeing it,” she said.

“I still have some music videos that I haven’t even seen, even though I paid for them too.”

The Eurovision star says she felt the label was trying to “intimidate” her by summoning her to boardroom sessions where she was outnumbered by “men in suits”.

She describes the day she finally left the label as “a turning point” and was willing to give up her career just to get out of her contract.

“I’m not a argumentative person, just to stand up and say, ‘Look, I’m done. I’m done with you and I’m going.” It’s a good and bittersweet moment of my time there,” she told The Project.
