Few bands represent the Atlanta rock scene from the 90s and 2000s like the seminal group THREE5HUMAN. When a mutual friend introduced vocalist Trina Meade to Tomi Martin, one of the most sought-after guitar players in popular music by every superstar from Eric Clapton, Outkast, and TLC to Madonna, Toni Braxton, and Michael Jackson, an immediate chemistry was formed. However, Tomi was not yet convinced that Trina would be the lead vocalist in the band he wanted to form. That is until Trina decided to prove to him that she could not only sing like no other, but she was also blessed with the ability to write great songs. Soon after, the band was formed, with Sean Michael Ray (bass), and Melvin Baldwin (drums) rounding out the group that would change the musical landscape of Atlanta.
With a sound that was rich, raw, and filled with great passion, they soon caught the attention of stars such as Amy Ray and Emily Sailers of the Indigo Girl, who immediately asked THREE5HUMAN to join them on tour as their opening act. Amy and Emily believed in them so much, they lent their vocals to THREE5HUMAN’s album, A Swig from the Acid Bottle. THREE5HUMAN’s other critically-acclaimed albums are Flying Below the Radar and Sunlight & Toys.
The band has performed together on and off over the years for special engagements while they all pursued other engagements and passion projects. However, they always yearned to play together and create new music.
