I Am They (Essential Records)
This six-member band from Carson City, Nevada, will debut their acoustic-driven album with a goal to highlight what it means to follow Jesus as true disciples.
The name I Am They is inspired by John 17 - created with the intent to adopt on a personal and individual level. As Jesus prays in this chapter, He consistently refers to His disciples as "they". It is important to each band member to be the "they" that Jesus referred to.
In 2011, God began to open multiple doors for the band. Through a unique series of events, including opening for a few CCM acts, as well as winning a band competition at Spirit West Coast, I Am They garnered attention within the industry, culminating in a major label/publishing deal with Provident Label Group. Having recently completed their debut album, and working towards an early 2015 album release, I Am They is a band that you won't want to miss.
