Seven Mary Three

  • Seven Mary Three, occasionally abbreviated to 7M3, is an American hard rock band.
  • Originally an acoustic duo, Ross and Pollock split song-writing duties and performed with Ross singing and Pollock playing guitar. Later, drummer Giti Khalsa and bassist Casey Daniel joined the band, and the foursome played coffeehouses and clubs throughout the Southeast.
  • Jason Pollock revealed in The Cavalier Daily that they came up with the name while watching the 1970s TV series CHiPs on TV—'7 Mary 3' was the call sign for Officer Jon Baker, who was played by actor Larry Wilcox. (7M3: police radio call sign; 7 designates the patrol beat, M for Mary designates that he is a motorcycle unit and 3 is his unit number). Pollock noted, "There's no great significance or anything. We were just tired of trying to think of a cool name."
  • Despite criticism of mimicking Pearl Jam and other alternative rock acts, only seven months after its release, American Standard achieved platinum status. This accomplishment can certainly be attributed to the success of "Cumbersome," which was a Top 40 hit, as well as another popular single, "Water's Edge."
  • After The Economy of Sound, the group shifted once again to DRT Entertainment and, in 2004, released Dis/Location. Their sixth studio album, it failed entirely to chart as did its only single. However, four years later, Seven Mary Three proved their resiliency by presenting a seventh album, day&nightdriving, under Bellum Records.
