Hard-rocking Cleveland-based band Three Miles Out remains regionally adored, as they have continued to work hard at honing their performance skills and growing their fan base. Though it has been over three years since the band’s last release, they have been crafting their sound and live show in ways that surely won’t disappoint the band’s fan base, and a new album is slated for release in mid-2006. TMO’s trademark guitar-driven modern rock sound is still there, but the hooks are bigger than ever and the band’s songwriting continues to mature into something special.
The past few years have presented TMO several opportunities to perform in front of large groups of potential fans, and they are the only unsigned Cleveland band to perform at every major venue in the city including Cleveland Browns Stadium, Blossom Music Center, Tower City Amphitheater and Quicken Loans Arena. TMO was repeatedly asked to return to such functions as Browns and Cavaliers pre-game festivities that were broadcast live on WUAB 19&43. They were also one of seven national finalists in the Budweiser Battle of the Bands in 2004, and have also performed at the Nashville New Music Conference, Eat’M Conference (where they were the featured artist at the MGM Grand), Midpoint Music Festival and Emergenza Music Festival.
With TMO, there are no gimmicks, no flash—just a tight rock band whose motto is “Fun with a capital ‘F’.” As a result, the band has seen its fan base grow from an average of five per show to five hundred in a few short years with a sound that is equal parts Fuel, 3 Doors Down, and Good Charlotte. Songs from both of TMO’s releases (TMO in 2000 and That’s Life in 2002) have consistently charted regionally on radio, and their song “If I Could Fly” even reached as high as #2 on one chart behind Metallica. TMO has opened for such national acts as 3 Doors Down, Shinedown, Seether, Boston, Styx, Peter Frampton and Nelson.
But always remembering to give back to the community that supports them, this band has donated their time and talent for such charities as M.A.D.D., Great American Picnic, Breast Cancer, Suicide Prevention Awareness, Townhall II and The Center of Hope/Christian Cupboard.
Through it all, Three Miles Out is just a group of good guys who happen to write songs with soaring guitars, catchy melodies, sweet harmonies and hooks the size of Ohio. They continue to pound the pavement in the Midwest, and plans are in place to tour regionally in support of the new album.
