Yes I Am is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge, released by Island Records on September 21, 1993 (see 1993 in music). The title is generally thought to refer to Etheridge's recent coming out as a lesbian, confirming long-standing rumors about her personal life. This is the album that gave Etheridge national recognition.
Melissa Etheridge is one of rock music’s great female icons. Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum. Etheridge’s popularity built around such memorable songs as Bring Me Some Water, No Souvenirs and Ain’t It Heavy for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits I’m the Only One and Come to My Window, a searing song of longing that brought her a second Grammy. The six times platinum album spent more than two and a half years.
Yes I Am is the album that catapulted Melissa Etheridge into superstardom. The 1993 collection's mercilessly driven, bluesy songs-nearly all dripping with sensual lyrics and rousing rhythms-made it the ideal breeding ground for a couple of career-enhancing music videos. The eerily possessive rock ballad "Come to My Window" hit the tube first with a bizarre twofold portrait of Etheridge and her guitar and actress Juliette Lewis having a nervous breakdown.
Melissa Etheridge wasn't out of the closet when she released Yes I Am in 1993, yet it's hard not to notice the defiant acclamation in the album's title. This barely concealed sense of sexual identity seeps out from the lyrics, and it informs the music as well, which is perhaps the most confident she has ever been. It's also the most professional she's ever been (perhaps not a coincidence), as she belts out these unapologetically anthemic numbers with a sense of finesse that's suited to lifestyle newspaper pages, not rock & roll, thereby setting herself up for.
Yes I Am, Etheridge’s fourth studio album, put her in the national spotlight with a trio of now-classics: Come To My Window, I’m The Only One and If I Wanted To. As the album turns 25 today (Sept. 21), the queer icon is in the middle of an anniversary tour and is gearing up to re-release of the album at the end of November, which Billboard can confirm has seven unreleased bonus tracks. To celebrate Yes I Am’s legacy, Etheridge caught up with Billboard to talk about the album’s significance. I’ve heard some behind-the-scenes horror stories about artists who wanted to come out publicly
