Artists, Albums & Songs We Love
I Am They
This new six-piece worship band, anchored on the group’s superb three-part harmony and an eclectic mix of instrumentation, is a conglomerate of worship leaders from various churches in Carson City, Nev. I Am They began opening for CCM artists passing through their area and eventually won a competition at Spirit West Coast that led to a recording contract with Provident Label Group. Although their debut doesn’t release until early next year, I Am They has already released a first single that’s currently vying for adds at radio and is, incidentally, already spinning at K-LOVE.
“From the Day” is a jubilant, singable track. (The official music video is below.) According to their website, the band says, “‘From The Day’ is a song celebrating the salvation we have in Jesus. That we might live each and every day remembering when we were pulled out of the darkness and have a joyful heart, never taking it for granted.”
For the curious, their band name comes from John 17 where Jesus refers to His disciples as “they.” The band’s desire is to be the “they” He references often. With a sound reminiscent of Rend Collective and City Harmonic, I Am They’s quirky, folky pop sound layered with spot-on harmonies will immediately leave you wanting more. We can’t wait to see what else these fine folks have up their sleeves when their full-length comes out in 2015!
