Midnight Riddims Show (click
Living in Alaska Land of the Midnight Sun I instantly
identified with the Empire of the Sun CD. I love the raw emotion of ThreePeace
felt on the instrumental Threedom. The conscious lyrics and Reggae grooves on
both One World / One God and Use What Jah Gives You (In A Good Way ) are
classic. I look forward to playing the next ThreePeace CD on Alaska Public
ThreePeace Representation "No Brainier"
Reviewer: Terrance P. Sheehan
When ThreePeace contacted me for representation for their
music, I immediately jumped on board. With all of the Hip Hop and Rap that
currently comes from Michigan, it was refreshing to see artists so versatile in
their music playing Rock and Reggae. Also, Musicians who care about music, not
so much interested in a quick buck, but more about the music they produce. This
ThreePeace "Empire of the Sun"
Reviewer: Darlene Alice
Living in Empire, Michigan I was thrilled and surprised to
find out that someone actually wrote a song about our wonderful town. "Empire of
the Sun" is has the perfect reggae beat for our World Famous Beach, Bob Marley
would be proud. Cheers to ThreePeace, great job.
Unique and Electrifying
The first time I heard the CD it was like nothing I have
heard before. "Empire of the Sun" and "One World / One God" are my favorite
songs on the disc. Every time I hear the "Assholes" song I think of our current
political leaders and laugh........LOL! Great Work!!!!

Reviewer: The Travelin' Bluesman
Recently I was in the Studio working on my latest
tunes and decided to give the boys from ThreePeace a chance to play some awesome
Rockin' Blues for my latest album. It is a wonderful thing to play with
professional musicians of this caliber. Those boys have a great deal of style
and cahones to boot. The ThreePeace album is just like everything they do!

Empire Michigan Now Has a Theme Song
Reviewer: Traverse City Joe
I love Empire of the Sun, The Song and The album. The
Reggae Beat That ThreePeace Provides is Rocking. I think Empire of the Sun
should be Empire Michigan's Official Theme Song. Well it already is to me!!!
Watched the sun set last night listening to ThreePeace with a Red Stipe. See you
on the beach in Empire. Joe
ThreePeace CD one of my favorites
Reviewer: Tom Markson

poster board where I live. It is one of my favorite cd's now. Thanks to
ThreePeace! My favorite song is "Empire of the Sun". -Tom
CD Review From
Empire Of The Sun (released
Sheehan Sound Engineering
We just don't get enough reggae/ska albums to review
at Hussieskunk! ThreePeace, hailing from Michigan, plays a mix of classic
rock meets reggae, with a touch of ska/dance thrown in for good measure.
Perhaps the most enlightening piece of the disc is the guitar work... The
bad part is not knowing which member is playing the guitar, so that I can
give them the appropriate credit! It appears that all three members help out
on all instruments! According to the bio included with the band they are a
deeply religious, or maybe it's that they respect their place under what
they see as a higher power in control or making things work, either way, it
doesn't come across directly in their music. To me, that's a relief (save
one song). I dig the smooth jams laid down by the band, and I would be
deathly afraid if they began either campaigning for the Lord or trying to
make others feel empowered through religious chanting or some such. All that
aside, ThreePeace have put together an impeccable eight track album here,
and throughout you get the reggae dosage that you may have been missing. You
know the reggae without the overbearing ska/dancehall influenced bass heavy
riffs, like...well, like anything dancehall/club sound... I like this album
with it's cool and calm demeanor, it's hip, smooth, groovy and relaxing.
Certainly a big change from all of the punk rock flavors I've been reviewing
lately. Good stuff here and more to come, as the band is due to release it's
next album anytime now. -MG

Rastaman CD Review From Hussieskunk.Com
For The Love Of The Rastaman
Sheehan Sound Engineering
Back with their latest release, the three piece rasta
influenced band, Threepeace, has belted out another thirteen track album
that is satisfying and entertaining. Where the previous release celebrated
the band's faith, this album touches upon other topics that are more in the
news: war, greed and world peace, as well as personal beliefs mixed in for
good measure. Additionally, the band has taken a turn deeper into the genre
of reggae and rasta rock. This disc is less rocking, and more mellow than
the "Empire Of The Sun" disc, which again is a bit of a turn for the band.
The same catchy beats and sing along styled lyrics are there, and for a
group of guys well of aged, this is still a welcome evolution. I think this
disc is more in the style that the band was hoping to accomplish on the
first disc. Keeping in the style of their heroes, Bob Marley and the Police,
the band has nailed the sound that they set out for, celebrating a genre
that doesn't see much action these days in popular music. Two of my favorite
tracks on the disc have got to be "Prince William Sound," with it's plea and
information regarding the oil spill in that tenuous environment, and "Fat
Cats," where the band only reinforces the notion that most of the rich
continue to get richer by being scumbags that could give a damn about those
around them in their efforts to gain further wealth. All in all, this is an
excellent release from the band, again showcasing their talent to write
catchy upbeat rasta-styled music. -MG
band is going to the top!
I received the new Threepeace album "For The Love of the
Rastaman" through the bands myspace music contest. It is simply one of the
best cd's in my collection. The merging of the Rock and The Reggae is
masterful. I am certain we will here more about Threepeace real soon. I would
put this album up against any classic albums from the past, and this one would
probably win! Thats how good it is! Buy it you won't be dissapointed!
would be proud!!!!
For the Love of the Rastaman is a brilliant and
stimulating compilation of rock & reggae far more superior than any cd in
recent memory. The slick grooves and articulant guitar riffs makes this cd a
must have for anyone who appreciates fantastic music. Lay my life down is
graciously written & the music becomes part of ones soul. Marley's War
combined with Shine on Children is a true tribute to the Peace and Tolerance
that He tried so hard to instill in all his music. One World not Three is in
perfect timing with the Police Reunion, I am sure Sting himself would be quite
impressed by this rendition. Great job guys...Exquisite work!
The Love of the Rastaman Rocks !
Reviewer: Alaska Jahn
Another solid Cd from ThreePeace of Michigan. I love the
Bob Marley and Police influences with a Three Peace twist. Prince William
Sound is a song that goes straight to the heart of Alaskans as we continue to
feel the lingering effects of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. I enjoy playing this
Cd on my Round Midnight Riddims Show heard on Alaska Public Radio www.kuac.org
The Love of the Rastaman"
Hey all. I met ThreePeace online and entered to win one
of their cd's. Amazingly I won! I received 'For the love of the rastaman'. I
Love It!! I listen to it all the time (and of course, sing along) It's so
peacefull and relaxing. It's really quite different from anything Ive heard
before. It's a blend of rock and regae. It's hard to pick a favorite from the
CD, but if I had to choose I would say 'Prince William Sound'. Listen and see
if you like it as much as me....I know you will. :)
The Love of the Rastaman! Highly Recommended!
