Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:
1) 3 is an American rock band formed in Woodstock, New York in 1994.

The band was founded as a three piece: Joey Eppard on Guitar and Lead Vocals, Josh Eppard on Drums and Chris Bittner on Bass. They came to the attention of Universal Records after well-received performances at the Woodstock festival in 1994, eventually getting signed in 1998, but following an unstable relationship with the label through its series of corporate mergers, the band was left with little prospect of releasing their album. Eventually, the band decided to release it on Planet Noise Records, a small indie label, and thenceforth managed themselves independently, until their 2005 signing with Metal Blade, on whose label they re-released Wake Pig in late 2005.

Their career has been marked by several line-up changes, most notably Josh Eppard’s departure to join Coheed and Cambria, who are now regular touring partners. Chris Gartmann joined the band in 1999 to replace Josh on drums, along with Billy Riker on Guitars, who has remained with the band since. Chris Bittner left in 2001, and was temporarily replaced by Joe Cuchelo. In 2004, Daniel Grimsland took over bass duties.

The band have toured nationally several times, as well as appearing on radio stations throughout the United States. Joey Eppard also has an active solo career, and released a solo album, Been to the Future, in 2002.

    The most internet unfriendly band name in the history of the universe. [3] They're like a more emotional version of Coheed and Cambria. Love it!

    Very underated band for how long they have been around. They're probably one of the most consistently good bands.

    Yeah, I had the hardest time trying to find anything by this band. Plus, their logo kinda looks like a penis. A name change wouldn't be the worst thing in the world

    They shouldn't be that hard to google anymore. Just type 3 in google and I guarantee you that the official 3 website will at least be on the first page of the search results. I made the new website and I boosted their SEO to make that happen. Also, links to all of their social network sites are on the official website.

    just use Joey Eppard or an album title. It's like searching for bands like Yes or Ours, just use a more distinct name/noun related to them.

    Vintage 1994 TV appearance. Thanks to Neesh for sharing and compiling the cool promotional part at the end.

    Joey Eppard is awesome :) I really wish I could listen to his acoustic solo album, but I can't find it anywhere.
