Seven Mary Three is an American hard rock band, who has released seven studio albums and is best known for their hit singles “Cumbersome,” “Lucky” and “Wait.” The band formed in 1992 when Jason Ross and Jason Pollock met during college and began playing around college campus and locals venues in Virginia. The duo marketed themselves as acoustic, song-writing musicians and played coffeehouses on a regular basis. Drummer Giti Khalsa and bassist Casey Daniel joined the band to fill out their sound. After a number of line-up changes, the band is currently comprised of Casey Daniel, Jason Ross, Thomas Juliano, and Mike Levesque. Giti Khalsa continues to be a member of the band but does not go on the road with them when they tour.

1995 saw the band self-release their debut album, “Churn,” which received airplay on a small number of rock stations, in particular a station in Orlando, Florida helped turn the single “Cumbersome” into a radio hit. The band's success, and growing fan base in Florida, prompted a move to Orlando, where major labels became interested in the band. The band signed with Mammoth Records and released their debut for the label, “American Standard” in 1995. The album was a commercial success and turned platinum, in addition to producing three hit singles, “Cumbersome,” “Water's Edge” and “My My.” Next the band hit the road and began to tour the states; upon their return they headed into the studio to work on their second studio album, 1997’s “RockCrown,” which came out on Atlantic Records. The album saw the band's musical direction shift away from their typical hard rock sound and move more towards an acoustic folk rock sound.

The band's second effort for Atlantic, “Orange Ave.” arrived in 1998, but did not chart well. 1999 saw guitarist Jason Pollock leave the band, who was replaced by Thomas Juliano. 2001 marked the band's return to Mammoth Records and the release of their fifth studio album, “The Economy of Sound,” which spawned the hit single “Wait.” 2004 saw another label change to DRT Entertainment and the album “Dis/Location” emerge, however, the album was a commercial failure and did not chart at all. The band took a break from music for a while to regroup and think about what direction they wanted to go in musically as the musical climate had changed so much since the early 90s. 2008 saw them resurface on Bellum Records and release their seventh studio album, “day&nightdriving.” The band quickly followed up two years later in 2010 with “Backbooth” on Settle Up Records.
