The way that one of the biggest bands right now was formed and how they succeeded reads like a Hollywood screenplay ! X Ambassadors began as a band titled Ambassadors.
They started a Kickstarter account to shoot a video for the lead single, “Unconsolable”. The group was noticed by Imagine Dragons while frontman Dan Reynolds was sick in the hospital in Norfolk, Virginia. Reynolds heard an acoustic version of “Unconsolable” on the radio and asked Interscope to sign the band as soon as possible.
One of their biggest hits is “Ahead of Myself,” and X Ambassadors frontman Sam Harris said the song ” is something that has an alternative feel to it but also soul and is lyrically intimate and revealing.”
