The Band & The EP
“Smile While I Sing the Blues” is the latest release from the Surrey (UK) band 3Times7, due for release 31st March 2021.
The EP was written and recorded through the pandemic, a time when a smile is worth its weight in gold. Written with love, this EP shows 3times7 passions for Blues, Soul and Rock and Roll.
During these uncertain times, often the band hasn't been able to get together due to lock downs and isolations. This album- written mostly in gardens over the summer, rehearsed in isolation, and recorded in 2 days in a Covid Safe studio - shows the strength of 3times7 and their ability to create and tell new stories.
3times7 hopes this EP will bring a smile to their fans and friends while live music gigs are unable to take place, and they hope to be able to reunite everyone at live gigs soon.
A founding member of 3TIMES7, Jenny has a voice that is brighter than her lipstick, and is a story teller at heart. She bring a retro feel to her soulful vocals.
RAIN IN CHICAGO
Rain In Chicago was inspired and written during a blues pilgrimage taken by Jenny and David as they travelled from Chicago to New Orleans, heading down the blues highway.
Dirty Money is the second release from 3TIMES7. Experimenting with a much larger sound and a larger line-up for a more “rocky Blues” orientated sound. They still keep to their blues roots with the fan favourites “Dirty Money” and “Jazz”.
Self-titled “3TIMES7” Album. The entire album was put together on a shoe string budget and was recorded, mixed and mastered in less than 24 hours.
Featuring Bruce Wraight on Harmonica
