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.
