Color Three are Gary Pihl (pronounced peel), Kimberley Dahme (pronounced dom) and Jeff Neal. They met as members of the rock band BOSTON and have toured together since 2003. Gary's been with BOSTON since 1985 when his former gig in the Sammy Hagar Band ended when Sammy went on to sing in Van Halen. Gary and Tom Scholz (founder and chief songwriter/producer of BOSTON) found Kimberley as a singer/songwriter and recruited her as a bass player for the band. Her poignant song, "With You", with her singing lead vocal, is a featured track on the BOSTON CD, Corporate America. Tom spotted Jeff Neal performing in a local band and was a terrific find. He's a singing drummer/songwriter in the vein of Phil Collins and Don Henley.

Color Three came to be a band as a result of the three musicians' desire to perform some charity concerts and to compose, record and perform live together outside of the scope of their other bands. Their combined songwriting talents have created a uniquely original sound that blends all their former experience, from Gospel to Pop to Metal, into a melodic pastiche with three part harmony.

The debut Color Three album will be released this summer. Besides the songs they've written themselves, they've collaborated with some other platinum selling songwriters like Kelly Keagy (Night Ranger), Mark Slaughter, and alt country artist, Anthony Smith.

The recordings were made just the way the band performs the songs live - three instruments, three voices. Featuring a surprisingly textured sound, some listeners have described Color Three as Fleetwood Mac meets U2. WWW.COLORTHREE.COM
