Hailing from Carson City, Nevada, I Am They has roots as a worship team based out of a community of various area churches. The band's 6-piece sound is propelled by versatile musicianship and anchored by three-part vocal harmonies. 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.
