3 Shades of Blue is a Christian rock band from Philadelphia, PA. They are 3 brothers (Jeffery, Jesse, Austin) + a guy who has refrigerator rights at their house (Dane… he also happens to play bass). They are known for their unique blend of rock and solid lyrics of hope. Their energy and hearts for ministry have gained the attention of leaders in the music industry and many fans along the East Coast. This summer they played at the Alive Festival in Mineral City, Ohio, and at the Creation Festival NE held in Mt. Union, PA. Loved it!!! By invitation, they recently recorded their EP, Love Will Sing Out, at Michael Card’s studio in Franklin, TN, working with producer Keith Compton. Keith said, “These guys are the total package! The musicianship is there. The heart-for-ministry is there. I am really diggin’ their stuff. They are radio-ready!” In 2011 they won the In the Groove Battle of the Bands in Philadelphia and have opened for national and international bands like Reilly and Superhero. One day they dream of playing around the world in music missions, hoping soon to be on the main stage at Christian festivals. Sharing the love of Christ is their passion. This goal is reflected in one of their favorite passages:“After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’” (Revelation 7:9,10)

The band has also recently released a brand new 3 song EP entitled Colors which is available for purchase or download.
