This collective will tightly rock any stage as though they’ve harnessed all the energy of the earth’s core. Three Sheet’s contagiously energetic live performances are validated with vivid and honest content both sonically and lyrically. It is because of this reputation that Three Sheet has been so successfully stirring up the East Coast music scene since 2009. In 2010 Three Sheet received ‘New Nova Scotia Artist of the Year’ and ‘Hip Hop Recording of the Year’ honours at NSMW, and were ECMA nominees for ‘Hip Hop Recording of the Year’. In 2011 the band was voted “Halifax’s Best Band’ in The Coast’s readers poll and they took home awards for ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and ‘Digital Artist of the Year’ (NSMW ’11) as well as a nomination for ‘Recording of the Year’. Their fourteen song album “Sheet Music” was released in 2011 and recorded largely live off the floor in Halifax’s coveted recording studio, The Sonic Temple. The second track on “Sheet Music”, called “Stamina”, was selected for a Much Music VideoFACT grant and shot entirely on an iPhone 4 by director Aram Kouyoumdjian. “Stamina” received a nomination for “Video of the Year” while the album received a nomination for “Hip Hop Recording of the Year” at the 2012 ECMA’s.
As tour veterans of Central and Eastern Canada, 2012 took them overseas to Taiwan as a part of the highly successful ‘Hello Taiwan!’ tour with The Chairman (TAI), Kou Chou Ching (TAI), and The Hsu-Nami (USA). Three Sheet was subsequently invited to play ‘Passport to Taiwan’ Fest in New York City’s own Union Square on Manhattan Island as a result of the great success they had on the ‘Hello Taiwan!’ tour.
During the last 3 years Three Sheet have spent less time touring while meticulously crafting, modifying and evolving their sound in the studio having spent more time writing, recording, and producing songs. They have reached new heights sonically in their music by adding keys, samplers and a new DJ, “Uncle Fester”, spinning the wax while still maintaining a rich, organic sound that stays true to their origins. The sextet is now poised to jump back into the ring Mike Tyson style with their long awaited, highly anticipated 3rd album “Heart to Make it Perfect”.
