Nashville, Tenn. (Jan. 27, 2015) - Essential Records/Provident Label Group's new recording artist I AM THEY, releases its self-titled debut album, today, January 27, 2015. The group's lead single, "From The Day," is available on iTunes and is impacting at Christian radio nationwide. Currently in the Top 25 at AC, the song has received major market support from stations such as KLOVE, Air1, WRBS/Baltimore, Fish Cleveland, WCSG/Grand Rapids, Fish Portland and Sirius XM's The Message, among others. In support of the project, I AM THEY will embark on a 23-city "Rock & Worship Road Show" tour beginning February 18, 2015, in Dallas, Texas, joining other notable artists such as Matt Maher, David Crowder and Mercy Me.

"We are thrilled to introduce I AM THEY - a highly talented band that we believe avid music fans are going to love," says Blaine Barcus, vice president of A&R with Provident Music Group. "With compelling voices that intersect with a passion for spreading the Gospel and worshiping God, I AM THEY is poised to positively impact today's generation for the Kingdom of God in a significant way."

Produced by Jason Ingram and Jonathan Smith, the album showcases the talents of the six-member band comprised of Adam Palmer (lead vocals/guitar), Matthew Hein (lead vocals/guitar), Stephanie Kulla (lead vocals) Justin Shinn (keyboard), Bobby Stiehler (bass), and Sara Palmer (drums). The 10-track project features their unique blend of folk-tinged pop, skillful musicianship and passionate vocals. Says Adam Palmer, "We were made to do this. Music ministry is our heartbeat and pulse. God has been growing dreams in us we didn't even realize we had. We are just trusting God and following where He leads."

I AM THEY showcases its varied talent and diversity throughout the project that shines through each of the songs which include: "We Are Yours," "Awake My Love," "Your Love Is Mine," "Over & Over Again," "King Of Love," "Even Me," "From The Day," "Make A Way," "Here's My Heart" and "Amen."

"From the Day," is quickly gaining the group a national audience. "It's a salvation celebration song," says Hein. "Some of the lyrics came out of Revelation 21 speaking of heaven where brilliant light is all around, and it says there's no need for a sun because Jesus Himself takes the place of that shining light."

With each of the members coming together from different churches in Carson City, I AM THEY met through Solomon's Porch; a regular worship event bringing believers together from all over the city. The group was discovered at a Spirit West Coast festival "Battle of the Bands" contest beating out 73 competing bands and awarded the grand prize trip to Nashville to have a song produced and recorded. Once in the studio, the band impressed some key industry veterans and labels, eventually signing with Essential/Provident in June 2013.

In their short career, I AM THEY has already made their mark in the Christian music arena having opened for Matthew West, Chris August, Todd Agnew, Bebo Norman, Brandon Heath, Big Daddy Weave, to name a few.
