Three Sheet Debut Organically Grown Haligonian Hip-Hop

Streaming LIVE tonight on haligonia.ca!



Halifax, NS – On Saturday, August 15, hip-hop collaborative, Three Sheet, will be releasing their debut album, “In Circulation” at their CD launch party at the Elephant & Castle restaurant in downtown Halifax.  

Three Sheet is five elements: three microphones and two guitars born through kitchen jams with wooden spoons for drumsticks, beatboxing, free styling and improvised guitar playing. Since moving out of the kitchen, Three Sheet has been making a lot of noise by bringing a new sound unlike anything Haligonians (or the rest of the world!) have heard before.  

“This album could potentially be the first all and only beatbox based percussion album: no drums, no samples, all live instrumentation straight from our musical souls to yours,” says band co-founder and guitarist, Ryan O’Quinn.  

One of Three Sheet’s biggest fans is also the owner of Elephant & Castle. What started as an open mic gig, turned into much more when Peter Baylis insisted the band take ownership of the night – creating “Three Sheet Thursdays.”  

Baylis says, “Three Sheet’s originality grasped my attention right away. The passion and conviction in their music is phenomenal. I think they’re the best band to come out of Halifax in eons!” After performing 31 weeks and counting at the Elephant & Castle Underground, Three Sheet is ready to showcase their music to a larger audience with the release of their first CD.  

Rappers, Ghettosocks and Jenocide will be opening the night at 10 pm. Three Sheet will follow at 11:45 pm with the very first screening of their music video for the song “Loungin’” which was filmed at Elephant & Castle in May.  

“Get out the datebooks, black books, blackberries, journals, sharpies, permanent makers, tattoo guns, cell phones, telegraphs, calendars or whatever else you write on and remember August 15 is the night to put your Three’s up!”
