Seven Mary Three are a quintessentially American band. Guitar. Guitar. Bass. Drums. An arsenal of chords and the truth . It’s this simplicity coupled with an incredible four albums of work that have kept the band moving forward long after many of their contemporaries have disbanded. It’s their personal powerful songs that have sustained the band through mainstream flirtations with ska, swing, Americana, indie rock, electronica, emo, and (insert the next big thing here).

Seven Mary Three continues to develop its following because they continue to evolve musically while connecting with the listener. With a string of top ten singles from the massive hit “Cumbersome” to 2001s “Wait” under their belt, the band has continually found a home on the radio. Yet there’s so much more to Seven Mary Three than the songs that have fared so well on the charts. Powerful lyrics. A depth in songwriting. Seven Mary Three’s fans cling to every word Jason Ross emits from his soft to raspy voice. Whether it’s fiction or personal truth, each song holds a story that means so much more than just singing along. This is a band that had a platinum debut and has charted each of their four albums while building a groundswell of critical acclaim in the process.

Formed in 1992 while teenagers at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, Seven Mary Three took their name from the 70s cult TV show CHiPs. After a few years of honing their sound in Virginia clubs, the band began to turn heads with their self-released debut Churn. The song “Cumbersome” found support at hometown rock station WJRR in Orlando, and when added to rotation in early 1995 the song sparked an immediate reaction from fans and the industry. A record deal with Mammoth/Atlantic soon followed, and band members managed to graduate from college in May, re-record much of Churn to form their major label debut American Standard (1995) in June, have a hit single nationwide with “Cumbersome” in August, and enjoy a platinum release by years end. Both “Water’s Edge” and “My My” from the debut also found their way into the top 10, and Seven Mary Three lived on the road supporting the record and building its reputation as a powerful live act. A parting of Mammoth and Atlantic held up release of Seven Mary Three’s follow-up Rock Crown (1997). The record explored darker and more personal material, highlighted by the acoustic top ten single “Lucky”. Fans often mention Rock Crown as their favorite of the four Seven Mary Three releases. The band’s third release Orange Avenue (1998) is a more straightforward pop/rock album with great songs like the top ten single “Over Your Shoulder” and haunting “Each Little Mystery”.

Album number four The Economy of Sound (2001) found the band back on Mammoth with their most accomplished record to date. Big riffs. Soaring vocals. Insightful lyrics. The album brought the band much deserved critical acclaim while continuing their string of top ten singles with “Wait”.

Seven Mary Three recently began work on their fifth release, tentatively entitled The Hi- Lo, by holing themselves up in producer Sylvia Massy-Shivy’s (Tool, System of the Down) Radiostar Studio in remote Weed, CA. Songs from this session have made their way onto a 4 song EP entitled Welcome Race Fans (2003) that is being sold exclusively online at and at their shows. The band will go back into the studio in late 2003 to finish recording for an early 2004 full length release.

With all that they’ve accomplished, singer/songwriter Ross just turned thirty and bassist Casey Daniel is looking forward to his 29th birthday. Drummer Giti Khalsa and guitarist Thomas Juliano are the old men in their early thirties.

The future promises more than the past for Seven Mary Three.
