What You Need To Know
I Am They made their way to contemporary Christian music circles after releasing their hit single, "Scars," in 2018. The song was played on Christian radio stations across the country. Since then, the Nashville-based band has gained popularity, releasing even more singles to radio. The group is comprised of vocalists/guitarists Matt Hein, Brandon Chase, and Abbie Parker, keyboard player Justin Shinn, and drummer Nicole Hickman. Recently, I Am They released Faithful God, a 10-track album that speaks about the faithfulness of the Lord.
What it Sounds Like
I Am They describe their music as pop worship—and that's exactly what it is. Each song pulls from those two genres, speaking about Jesus and His faithfulness in our lives. Keyboards and acoustic guitars are prominently featured throughout Faithful God to give each song that intimate worship feel. This album is filled with biblical truths. The music serves as a reminder that God is faithful and greater than anything we will ever find in this world. The band has a similar sound as We The Kingdom, so if you like their music, you'll probably also like I Am They.
There are so many great spiritual highlights on this album. Each song expresses how God is faithful—hence the name of the album—and how He will never leave us. I Am They shares how God always remains faithful to us.Even when we're standing face-to-face with our greatest fear, God isn't far away. "Faithful God" and "All Along" highlight these messages. On their website, the band says they lean into Hebrews 10:23 (NIV), which says, "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." This album powerfully displays that verse.
Best Song on the Record
It's a hard choice. But, the best song on the record would have to be the title track, "Faithful God." I've seen God's faithfulness so much in my life, so that song hits home for me. It really ties together the album and makes it complete. The lyrics are so uplifting. It's a song that you won't want to skip. "I will sing through fire and thunder cause You are on my side/I trust You with my life/I know my story, it isn't over/Even against all odds You are a faithful God."
Although 2020 has been a hard year, Faithful God will lift you and give you hope. I Am They truly released this album at the perfect time. This album is so encouraging, and I'm sure you'll love it. You can stream Faithful God now on Apple Music and Spotify.
