Their energy and hearts for ministry have gained the attention of leaders in the music industry and many fans along the East Coast. This summer they played at the Alive Festival in Mineral City, Ohio, and at the Creation Festival NE held in Mt. Union, PA. Loved it!!! By invitation, they recently recorded their EP, Love Will Sing Out, at Michael Card’s studio in Franklin, TN, working with producer Keith Compton. Keith said, “These guys are the total package! The musicianship is there. The heart-for-music is there. I am really diggin’ their stuff. They are radio-ready!” They won the In the Groove Battle of the Bands in Philadelphia and were recently crowned "Best Contemporary Christian Band" in a 64 band battle.

“These guys are really good on stage and off stage at impacting your teens for Jesus!” Pastor Billy Hestand, New Life Community Church
“I cannot wait to see how God will continue this mighty ministry! The band weaved cover songs and their own musings to furnish an energized concert, discharging contemporary melodies that met our teens practically. The guys impressed upon their audience the invaluable Word of God not just through their actions and lyrics, but also by the power of the Bible itself. They truly ministered at our event leaving behind only our desire to have them back… They were sensitive to our congregation, they were sensitive to the Spirit’s leading, and they were sensitive to the fact that worship is all about God and not about the band– a pastor could not ask for more and God could not ask for less.” – Pastor Keith Bartram, Grace Bible Church
“What do you get when you combine the styles of Jimmy Needham, Sanctus Real, Needtobreathe, Switchfoot and a hint of Casting Crowns? You get the signature sound that can only be defined as 3 Shades of Blue. Combining elements of rock, with piano, acoustic guitar, and beautiful harmonies, 3 Shades of Blue creates a new innovative style of contemporary music that is not only energetic and fun, but most importantly Christ-centered.”—Tim Ewing, Kindred Concert Ministries [+]
