"The Industry's best kept secret"

"3 Shades of Gravy are a fresh blend of all things rock, alternative, and the singer/songwriter style. Their music can captivate any audience, regardless of age or ethnicity, and evoke feeling into you whether it's the first time or the hundredth time you've heard it.

On a personal note, whenever I book them, I have a great crowd of old and new fans alike with new fans being made every time the door opens and their harmonious sounds resignate through the soul. Their song, "This Mood," a personal favorite, defies what many think can and can not be done without the confines of a studio and vast computer work.

3 Shades of Gravy is innovative, and passionate. Their music makes it easier to breathe and makes your soul smile a little more than usual. In my eyes, they are the music industry's best kept secret."
- Kenneth Johnson


"Everything's Gravy!"

"3 Shades of Gravy brings a new yet reminiscent feeling of what feel good music is about. With smooth and witty lyrics riding rhythmic acoustic riffs, the band brings a sound that captivates and astounds. With rocking electric guitars on songs such as Show Me what to Do and laid back bass lines with acoustics on songs like Here and Now and Mine, the band shows they can have an edge or they can charm you with a sound similar to Jack Johnson or John Mayer. The group tops its sound off with a wall of percussion featuring sharp auxiliary percussion on top of mouth dropping set playing. With influences such as Dave Matthews Band, Brian McKnight, and Otis Redding, 3 Shades of Gravy stays diverse yet consistent. Anytime one sees a show, they are guaranteed to be singing at least one of the Birmingham based group's songs for days." - Todd Rosser

Bio

3SG was born in the Spring of 2004. Starting out as an acoustic act with influences ranging from Dave Matthews and John Mayer to Brian McKnight and Miles Davis, the band quickly found a sound deeply rooted in acoustic rock with a jazzy twist. Playing the local coffee shop scene in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, the 3 college roommates looked to make the guitar, bass and percussion trio more versatile by adding guitar prodigy Daniel Williams. AndrĂŠ, CJ, Chris and Daniel started to evolved into a jam band like no other and quickly grew in popularity. By adding Matt Wiginton on drums, their sound grew heavier and more lively by adding electric guitars. Playing in and around the city and placing near the top in every battle of the bands they entered, their sound matured and they knew this is what they wanted to do. Bringing in Matthew Taylor, formerly of Moses Mayfield, as the finishing touch, 3 Shades of Gravy has become a band with no limits and one of the most entertaining in the city! There is no other sound and no other experience than the feel-good groove 3SG provides night in and night out. Once you think you've fallen in love with the acoustic rhythms, the percussion and drums mesmerize. Once you've become wrapped up in the smooth bass licks, the sax stuns you rendering you a permanent member of The Gravy Boat. Whether it's a local coffee shop, such as Capture Studio CafĂŠ, a premiere music venue like Zydeco or The Yellow Room, or lining up with some of the best musicians in the world at City Stages as they did in 2007, everytime 3 Shades of Gravy plugs in, they prove they are a band here to stay!
