3 feet up is a 2 piece band (a married couple!) from NC that pushes the boundaries of rock & pop by exploring unexpected & fresh perspectives. They also use odd instrumentation in their live shows - piccolo bass guitar & drums, sometimes just bass guitar & drums.
Chris & Victoria Hardy are 3 feet up. They also happen to be husband and wife. They live just outside of Greensboro, North Carolina and have played music together since June of 2004.
Chris writes most of the songs, plays the stringed instruments (piccolo bass guitar & bass guitar) and vocalizes, and Victoria hits drums & cymbals while standing up. She started learning drums just weeks before their first show in June of 2004.
The two cite influences as diverse as XTC, Cake, Beck, John Lennon, Robyn Hitchcock, Foo Fighters, Sting, Steely Dan and way more.
Since the release of their self-produced debut CD ÃâÅTank Full Of Gas And An Empty CupÃâìŒ, they have been featured on the CBS Early Show. Two other CDs have followed and they're currently working on #4.
used to play all over Portland, Maine, MA, even GA. Now we live near Greensboro, NC and we play all over NC & SC & VA now.
