III Bones (Three Bones) is the soul, mind and art of the consciousness of all that is truly alive. Half of our proceeds go to Oxfam America.
Florida based Lo-Fi Blues Rockers, III Bones is steadily strengthening the spirits of now the East Coast of the United States and soon to be the rest of the world with their medicinal dose of driving-low ego grit that has the spirit and soul that would make James Brown a fan.
"Word is spreading fast about III Bones, a new spirit-breathing, organic band launched this year in Ocala, FL. Call III Bones' music "Jivanmukta," an enlightened state -- assimilation of self-knowledge and liberation of spirit while living in human physical form.
Victoria de Benedicty carried the vocals that night with "pure, engaging and lyrical scores" with Dalton J. Woodard on guitar and Curtis Haaker on percussion. Musically, the trio synthesizes a unique blend of psychedelic rock-and-roll and R&B soul. This manifests in a mysterious, calming experience for any contemporary listener.
Essentially, III Bones belongs to the organic genre -- music of natural, percussive and acoustic-based instruments. Its roots are in music, natural and good for the soul. Named for the three bones of the inner ear that enable us to hear, III Bones aspires that its sound be "the truth, the soul, the body, and the screaming word of all that is pure."
Victoria and Dalton are all about bringing a blend of willing idealism and spiritual hope to music making. III Bones' goal is world improvement, following a conviction that changing oneself is integral with changing the world. Their compositions and performances connect heart-to-heart. They convey an inviting sense of appeal that awakens the listeners to want to reach and stretch for something more hopeful than the human distress of an inherited world gone mad.
In the band's words, "There are ones who are in dire need of someone to help them, and I am not talking about overseas; (we're) talking about your community. We are starting in the communities, helping one individual at a time, changing their heart to begin an effect to change all."
"Our message is to enjoy each day to its full potential. Go outside and breathe clean air, stretch and eat. Be good to one another and keep a smile on your face, for a smile is contagious, whether the person with the frown knows it or not. Begin with yourself and others will learn the ways of happiness and tranquility."
Recently, III Bones climbed to the top spot for Blues in Gainesville on the ReverbNation charts. Tracks are available on the official III Bones website including "Hidden Doorway," "What I've Become," "Day by Day," and "Faded." -- Arthur K. Burditt
