In the year 1970, four young musicians from the South Bay of Los Angeles, came together to create a new invigorating style of music.
Exploring the possibilities of progressive, classical, and world influences, yet rooted with the soul of the blues and R&B, Joseph Puerta, David Pack, Christopher North, and Burleigh Drummond put together a new sound that was defined and recognized as "Ambrosia."
Originally labeled as America's answer to the progressive invasion of such English acts as "Yes" and "King Crimson," the group quickly proved it was all that and much more as its albums painted aural landscapes covering the gamut of musical styles and attracting the collaboration of such cultural icons like Leonard Bernstein, Kurt Vonnegut Jr., and Alan Parsons.
In its brief recording history, Ambrosia garnered 5 Grammy Nominations, 5 Hit Singles, Heavy FM airplay and the admiration and respect of the musical community. All of this was in addition to sold out concerts and love from fans all over the world.
With three of the original members intact, Ambrosia delivers a delicious blend of prog, art, and yacht rock...delivered with a passion that speaks to the hearts of their fans today.
