American rock band X Ambassadors hails from Ithaca, N.Y., and has a string of hits like "Renegade," "Unsteady" and "Jungle," along with a growing and devoted fan following. X Ambassadors hit the rock scene in 2009, touring with artists such as LIGHTS and self-releasing its first EP, Ambassadors. It self-released an LP titled Litost next, and the song "Litost" would later be featured on the soundtrack of the movie The Host. In 2012, the band signed a music deal with SONGS Music Publisher, launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to shoot a video for the song "Unconsolable" and caught the attention of Imagine Dragons' frontman Dan Reynolds. After hearing an acoustic version of "Unconsolable" on local radio while in the hospital, Reynolds asked Interscope to sign X Ambassadors, and the rest is history.
Living Like They're Renegades
Lead vocalist Sam Harris, his brother and keyboardist Casey Harris and drummer Adam Levin are the members of X Ambassadors. Casey Harris has been blind since birth and learned piano when working as a professional tuner. The brothers, along with original band member Noah Feldshuh, grew up in Ithaca, N.Y. That connection translated into the song "Unconsolable," which got the band noticed by Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons. Aside from the release of the albums Litost, VHS and Orion, two X Ambassadors songs can be heard in commercials. "Jungle" was featured in a Beats by Dre ad, and you can hear "Renegades" in an ad for Jeep.
