About The Band:

Seattle-based Amber Pacific is fueled by a desire and yearning that has been the driving force in their career since day one.

The current line up seems to be the strongest and most talented yet. Members Jesse Cottam on Vocals, Will Nutter and Davy Rispoli on Guitar, Greg Strong on Bass and Dango on Drums have a fresh start on a new label and couldn’t be more ready to take on the world. “We’re all really excited to be on Victory. We expect a lot of good and very big things to happen,” says Will Nutter.

Originally known under the name Follow Through, an expired version of the band enjoyed a run of fame when participating in the Vans Warped Tour from 2004-2007 and sharing a string of dates with Matchbook Romance on the Sub City Take Action Tour in the spring of 2006. Amber Pacific proved that the “sophomore release curse” was a myth when they challenged it head on, releasing Truth in Sincerity in 2007. The title landed itself a deserving number 64 on Billboard’s Top 200 Charts.

However, it wasn’t all smooth sailing on the success wave. In February of 2008, lead vocalist Matt Young left Amber Pacific to pursue a career in public education. Luckily, after feverish searching, the remaining members stumbled upon “neighbor – to – the – north” Canadian singer Jesse Cottam. “We set up an audition system via email account,” says Nutter. “There were about 250-300 submissions and out of that, there were only three people who were maybe good enough to do it.” After weeks of frustration, Nutter turned to YouTube, searching for homemade videos of radio hits, in hopes that maybe someone would grab his attention. “I was entertaining the idea of maybe having a girl singer, so I typed in ‘Katy Perry – I Kissed a Girl’ and Jesse’s video popped up. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after watching, I immediately reached out to him about flying in for an audition.”

Present day finds Amber Pacific with a breath of fresh air. Having added a vocalist that gives the band an extra boost, they’ve written what can be called their best record to date; Virtues is available now on Victory Records.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
