I Am They is a Christian band formed in Carson City, NV. Their unique instrumentation and sound is led by the three-part vocal harmonies of Matthew Hein, Abbie Parker and Jon McConnell. With Matt and Jon on acoustic/vocals and Abbie on vocals/harmonium, the band is rounded out by Justin Shinn on keys, and Sara Palmer on drums. The name was inspired by John 17 and created with the intent to adopt on a personal, 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.
