Bio: In March, 2009, a Cincinnati-based group of musicians set out with a goal in mind. This sextet, known as I Am The Messenger, wanted to create hardcore music but also wanted to push that style's limitations. Along the way, they have sought to develop a live show that combines the band's natural energy with crowd participation to make I Am The Messenger's performance unlike any other. Last – but not least – the members of the band wanted to utilize a positive message in their lyrics to encourage the audience to become the change they want to see in the world.
The members of I Am The Messenger have varied musical backgrounds and influences. As a result, their sound shows a great deal of diversity and range. The listener will experience moments of driving, hardcore rhythms flavored with highly technical and intricately pieced-together instrumentals reflecting some of their metal roots. Their aggressive style is tempered by soaring vocal harmonies and upbeat keyboard melodies that demonstrate I Am The Messenger's pop sensibility.
Since forming, I Am The Messenger has been hard at work promoting their music. They perform live shows regularly; they have performed on the indie stage at Ichthus and on the Encore 2 stage at the Cornerstone Music Festival, along with countless acts such as Miss May I, Gwen Stacy, Let's Get It, A Plea For Purging, Thursday, Dillinger Escape Plan, Four Letter Lie, I Am Ghost, Haste The Day, The Bled, and countless others. The release show for I Am The Messenger's five song debut EP "Robots" brought well over 1,000 people to Madison Theater in Covington, Kentucky.
