Biography

In its decade-plus existence, Hampton Roads’ Astropop 3 has endured the rollercoaster that is being working musicians: the countless lineup changes, the tease of commercial success, suffering through drama, loss and heartbreak, then getting up and doing it all over again. Despite the pitfalls of a merciless industry and slow growing scene, AP3 soldiers on, bringing Hampton Roads the original indie-pop music that music fans have loved since 1995.

Although the previous lineups took a detour into slightly harder rock with “Allies and Stepping Stones”, the new AP3 has scaled back with a stripped down sound centered around what they’ve always done best: well-crafted, catchy pop songs. Dan V continues to provide the backbone of the music and the band, but occasionally steps aside to let Ciesther contribute her own songwriting and melodies. Newer songs plus reimaginings of music from Dan’s bottomless archives seamlessly paves the way for stronger melodies, lush male/female harmonies, and allows each member to shine, without the noise.

Through the changes, AP3 continues to draw rave reviews:

“…it is with much anticipation that I await the band’s next album, which the artists are recording now. I have to admit, if the band completely leaves its older sound, I would be quite disappointed. Whatever, though, these artists decide to do, short of death metal, I will listen.
