Biography

Rude boys from illinois, e3po is a 3-5 piece band, hailing from the southlands of Chicago, blending their reggae rawk music with traces of whatever they can find... dub, pop punk, americana and more! The band formed in early 2008, and has been grinding pavement from coast to coast with the steam of a locomotive. The band released their first demo in early '08 called "all she needs" which was followed by their sophmore 2009 release of the self produced "rewind ep". E3PO is made up of Eric Swanson, Jamie Stewart, & Adam Swanson.
