I AM THEY made its national debut in January 2015 with their self-titled album on Essential Records. The band's five-piece, pop-acoustic worship sound is anchored by three-part vocal harmonies. The group, made up of Abbie Parker (vocals/harmonium), Jon McConnell (vocals/guitars/keys), Matt Hein (vocals/guitar/mandolin), Justin Shinn (keys/banjo) and Sara Palmer (drums) represent I AM THEY - inspired by John 17. "In that chapter," shares Sara, "Jesus is praying for his disciples and refers to them as 'they.' He's praying and saying things like, 'Sanctify them. Make them holy. They are not of the world because I am not of the world' He's really interceding for his disciples. We are disciples of Christ and being disciples is just as important today as it was back then. We're still here for the same purpose on the same mission with the same calling, bringing people to the Lord and spreading the news of the Gospel to people. We really wanted to incorporate that into our mission as a band, saying that anybody who is a believer in Christ is a 'They.' They are a disciple as well so we can stand together in that and really bring people into the 'I AM THEY' family because we are all family in Christ."
The project's first single "Crown Him" is a song of surrender. "Sometimes we lose sight of the eternal purposes our lives carry," shares Jon McConnell, lead vocalist on the song. "We can get so worried about our own agendas and building a kingdom for ourselves that we forget that it's really not about us or our kingdoms at all." Matthew 6:33 says, 'But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.' Jesus wants us to come to Him before anything; to surrender and make Him king of our lives and He will always have our back. As people hear this song, we pray that they would be reminded that whatever it is we pour our lives into, it is meant to magnify and glorify God and crown Him as king over everything: our struggles, our burdens, our victories - even the songs we sing. May we live daily in His victory and for His glory."

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.
