3 and Twenty’s music transcends the limited boundaries of traditional and contemporary genres. It is Country at its highest evolutionary level that cross reverberates with a unique blend of hip hop, rock, and R&B. Combine their passion for song writing with a high energy, must see live show, and you have something that can’t be explained… it must be experienced.
Staying true to their country roots, their writing is influenced by legendary artists like Hank Williams Jr., Johnny Cash, Alabama, and Lynyrd Skynyrd; combine that with hip hop influences like Bone Thugs N Harmony and Dr.Dre, then add soulful harmonies inspired by Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight and you’ll appreciate the eclectic, good ole boy, rowdy back-road realism with a touch of “swang” (southern swagger with a twang) that makes 3 and Twenty appealing to all demographics.
Adrian Lee is 3 and Twenty’s focused and passionate vocalist, guitarist, songwriter and lyricist and has been called, “one of the most versatile artists to emerge from the South”. He has worked with Grammy winning producers, charted in the top 30 on Radio and Records National Charts, and performed countless shows across the U.S. “I’ve been playing bars and clubs, sleeping on floors, and meeting people from all walks of life for a long time now, and I still can’t wait for the next time I get to step on stage. It’s truly an honor when someone comes up and says our music helped them in some way… we’re just good ol’ country boys trying to live and enjoy life like everyone else. It still amazes me how music brings people together.”
Butch Gibson, also a veteran of the southern music scene, is a Country/Pop driven songwriter as well as one of the most talented performers/vocalists to ever stand in front of a microphone. He has won National song writing competitions and performed with everyone from Yolanda Adams and Fred Hammond to Jagged Edge, Lil Jon, and Lyfe Jennings. “Singing a certain song can change somebody’s mood immediately… singing the right song can change their life. Singing is my life and is the only thing that truly makes me happy. Be it for 10 people or 10,000 people, I am going to sing my heart out and give them a show that they will never forget .”
“ Life is too short… time to play some music, party til’ the sun comes up, and live life to the fullest… let’s GET IT ON YA’LL!!”
