IAMbassadors is a Christian contemporary band from Elgin, IL. Originally formed as a solo act, the group is now comprised of six members solidifying their contemporary worship sound. With influences from Need to Breathe, David Crowder, and Kutless, IAMbassadors blends worship, personal meaning, and fun into a sound they hope glorifies God and resonates with fans at varying stages of faith or doubt.
Following the release of the single, “You Are Mine,” which has over 45,000 You Tube views and the subsequent release of the lyric video in September of 2018, IAMbassadors is currently playing local live events, booking live events for 2019, and recording this fall and winter for a new album release in 2019! Additionally, they are even working on Spanish originals as they believe God is for all people groups and they will do their best to connect so God’s story can be told.
“Podemos oír a Dios en esta música (‘We can hear God in this music’). That was the reaction of a Dominican couple after hearing a recording of ‘You Are Mine, ’ ”

IAMbassadors was started by Daniel Scott, a guitarist who was involved with music prior to becoming a Christian in 2011. Daniel was a guitarist in the Christian group called the Jochy D Band while he wrote and released “You Are Mine” in 2016 with the prayer that one day God would open doors for a band and additional original music. Late 2017 saw the addition of bass player, Bryan ‘PigPen’ Ryndak while 2018 saw the addition of back up vocalist Eric Stroud on keys/synth/pads, drummer Noe Rocha, back up vocalist Jochy De La Cruz on piano, and finally Jesus Chavez on lead guitar.
They continue to play for the homeless and have been asked to play for local charity events. They have seen God’s hand in doors opening with band mates, gigs and connections. A common quote heard at rehearsals is “none of this makes sense” answered by, “that’s how we know God is in this.”
With ages ranging from 30's-60's, they have endured significant life events and have committed to telling their stories of who God has been and continues to be within those stories. They have a desire to connect with others who have similar stories but feel alone in their faith journey while navigating significant trials. IAMbassadors wants to worship the Most High King and connect to others with an authentic, real message of hope in Jesus, even in life’s darkest moments.
