Biography

"3STARKARMA? More like five star vocals combined with an earnest style
and high engery performance. Definitely a band to keep an eye on" --- Greg Roche, On-Air Personality/DJ - DC101, Washington D.C.

Everything comes back again, evolved, better. It's what it comes back as that defines it. Everything happens for a reason. That's what has brought us together. Through a common bond we present it to the masses, with honesty and passion, to show you that you're alive.

Can you feel it? Can you feel it coming around again, new, but familiar?

3STARKARMA

The vision of this band is not about reinvention; it's about taking what's around them and making it better and making it theirs. From birth to death, it is Karma that exists as a stark realism, governing how each and every one of us approaches our lives, day in and day out. Paralleling the three major elements of Karma (the good, the bad, and the balance), the music behind 3STARKARMA blends the simple and complex nature of sounds, lyrics, and melodies into a careful balance that ever so captures the thoughts, feelings and situations that may result during each of our lives.

3STARKARMA's hard edge, melodies, emotion, seriousness, humor and lack of inhibition pour out of each song creating a bond between the music and listener. A connection that puts the listener into the song to where they feel like it was written just for or about them. This isn’t just for the band; it's for you.

The band finalized in 2004 and hails from the Washington D.C./N. VA/MD area. It’s five points are Mathew Daugherty – vocals, Tony Kwok – guitars, Colin Stevenson – guitars, Bobby DeRosa – bass, and Mike Nager – drums.

In 2005 3SK released their self recorded/produced CD demo 2005 and hit the road playing with some of the areas best bands.

In September, 2006, 3SK released their 3 song EP, the Clearing recorded and mixed by Scott Spelbring (Jason Mraz, SR-71, the Speaks) of Dragonfly Studios in Virginia and produced by Scott Spelbring and 3STARKARMA. The CD was mastered by Grammy winner Jay Frigoletto (Saliva, Damage Plan, Linkin Park).

Now well see what happens next..

You Said

You Said
Written by 3STARKARMA, copyright 2006

You said that I would never
You said I couldn’t make it
You said I didn’t fit in
You said I wasn’t one of you
You said that I would give up
You said that I would fade away

Ironic how things turn out
Seems it was you that burned out
I endured with heart
Projection at its best, I
Turned out like the rest and
You just fell apart

You said…

You said that pigs would fly first
You said that I would die first
You said I didn’t belong
You said I wasn’t one of you
You said that I should concede
You said I’d crumble in your hands

Ironic how things turn out
Seems it was you that burned out
I endured with heart
Projection at its best, I
Turned out like the rest and
You just fell apart

How it must feel, to be the person you despise
And it’s so surreal, that you would fall and I would rise

Ironic how things turn out
Seems it was you that burned out
I endured with heart
Projection at its best, I
Turned out like the rest and
You just fell apart
Now who’s the pariah?
Who do you admire?
I knew all along
Classic hypocrisy? Or
Was it mere jealousy? No
Matter, you were wrong

I Say.

Skin
Written by 3starkarma, copyright 2006

Hello there, are you well?
Because from above, it’s hard to tell.
And it seems you’ve lost your way.
We all do, every single day.

What you don’t – know…

You don’t know what you will see – if you step into my skin
Open your eyes to believe – when you step into my…
Then you’ll know what it’s like to be free – when you step into my skin
And you will see the real me - when you step into my…

Each day you become more condemned.
Just a shell, for you to pretend.
That everything fades with time
If you reconstruct, you’ll be just fine.

What you don’t – know…

You don’t know what you will see – if you step into my skin
Open your eyes to believe – when you step into my…
Then you’ll know what it’s like to be free – when you step into my skin
And you will see the real me - when you step into my…

Tell me that you want to stay.
I can take the pain away.
You’ll never have to say goodbye.
You just have to step inside.

You don’t know what you will see – if you step into my skin
Open your eyes to believe – when you step into my…
Then you’ll know what it’s like to be free – when you step into my skin
And you will see the real me - when you step into my…

The Clearing

The Clearing
By 3STARKARMA copyright 2006

If you peel back the skin what will you see?
Nothing more than someone scared.
If you take a little time to see what I saw
Then we could begin again

And still I try
I try to see the light in everyone

We run, How far will it take to find ourselves
We run, How long will it take to find me.

Still I’m just as lost as I was
Yesterday and the day before
The clearing, it fades on through
Like I’m watching in the window.

And still I try
I try to see the light in everyone

We run, How far will it take to find ourselves
We run, How long will it take to find me.

Now I see that I’m just the same as everyone
And it was me, who kept it bottled up inside and it buried me alive

But now I see
The light inside of me

We run, How far will it take to find ourselves
We run, How long will it take to find me.
We run, How far will it take to find ourselves
We run, How long did it take to find me.
