Biography

There is more than one artist with this name.

For the progressive rock band formed in Woodstock, NY in 1994, see 3.

1) Three consists of a set of identical triplet sisters, Fanny, Frida and Sofia, from Sweden. They are best known for their 2010 single “Lucky Number” and have released a self-titled debut album.

2) After recording the Egg Hunt songs in England, Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson considered forming a new band. They played with Geoff Turner and Steve Niles of Gray Matter, but the project never got off the ground and Ian decided to leave. The others carried on, and soon added yet another Gray Matter member, Mark Haggerty, and this line-up would become Three. Meanwhile, Steve had started his own comic book company, Arcane Comix, which he operated out of the apartment that he shared with Geoff on Swann Street in the Dupont Circle area of DC. It was this street that served as inspiration for the song of the same name, and the line “these berries smell like shit” referred to the small fruits that dropped to the sidewalks from the Ginkgo trees on the block. Three did a few short tours, and recorded at Geoff’s home studio as well as Inner Ear. Things were looking up for them, but the band self-destructed before their album came out. Three and Happy Go Licky played their last shows together on New Year’s Day, 1988.

    Swann Street is soooo good! I just wish the CD would be in stock on Dischord's website though. :-/

    It would be great to have all scrobbles for Joey Eppard's "Three" auto-fixed to 3.

    I've just discovered Three DC. The vocalists voice has an uncanny resemblance to Ben Folds. And that is not a bad thing.

    I can't imagine of a way how the new album will be better than "The end is begun". Yet I believed the same thing when I couldn't imagine of way how TEiB could be better thatn Wake Pig and they proved me wrong!

    I don't think Eppard realized the problems of calling a band "3" in the internet age!

    Actually, Joey Eppard's prog band can be tagged either Three or 3. It has been spelled both way in many obvious official ways.

    The correct name of the artist with the 30-second playable tracks at the top of the charts is 3 so someone screwed up here.
