THREEPEACE – Positive Vibration Session was recorded in 2007 at Positive Vibration Studios in Grand Blanc, Michigan. ThreePeace Music is rooted in the cause of moving our World forward with Peace, Acceptance and One Love, as the great Bob Marley did before them. The band is going through a revival of sorts finding that the sounds of analog tape and spontaneous recordings made for the some of the best jam sessions. While sessions like these lend themselves to musical mistakes at times, it also that atmosphere which creates the best space for being in the spirit, going with the flow. This was the initial concept of the “Empire of the Sun” album itself. Often when you overdo the perfection with countless overdubs, you kill the spirit of the recording.
This project is a collection of Reggae Rock with a Punk edge which ThreePeace is known for. On this 6 song compilation the band covers the Bob Marley Classics “Stir It Up” and “War” and a punk version of The Police “Walking in your Footsteps”. Also featured are songs from the ThreePeace album “Empire of the Sun”. ThreePeace influences musically are many and include the likes of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and other Classic Reggae artists, as well as Classic Rock and New Wave influences like The Police and The English Beat. The band believed that this project sounded like a an old vinyl album bootleg and thus that is exactly how it will be released in limited edition.
This was recorded after the band was selected as one of twelve artists featured on the MySpace Music Calendar. This session was recorded during bass player auditions in 2007 as Raul was leaving the band for Alaska. The bass guitar is played by Michelle Hobbs who had never played any of this material before with the band. The energy and spark of the recording had a flow the band always loved. There were no rehearsals for this recording so it took its own musical direction. This recording has always been a band favorite and embodied the spirit and spark of the “Empire of the Sun” album and the “For the Love of the Rastaman” album. Michelle never actually played a service with ThreePeace other than this one session. This was a jam recording recorded via a X-Y stereo microphone setup in the studio. This Positive Vibration Session can be considered a band authorized Bootleg Recording. A limited Edition Vinyl Pressing was done for this recording. Information of that can be viewed on www.ThreePeace.Org, information on the Positive Vibration Session can be found here, http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/threepeace5
