LOS ANGELES, MAY xx, 2016 – New York-based trio Thirdstory have been wowing fans across North America opening for pop songstress Tori Kelly on her extensive US tour. Fans will now get a taste of the band’s forthcoming debut album, with the three-song digital EP, Searching, featuring “Searching For A Feeling,” “G Train,” and “Grows Old,” out on Friday, May 13 via Verve Records.
The powerful vocal stylings and signature harmonies of Thirdstory seamlessly blend R&B, soul, hip hop and folk. The young trio began to amass millions of followers online with their tastefully crafted covers of contemporary artists (Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande) posted on YouTube. This anticipated release features all original material and showcases the band’s three-part harmonies and varied influences, ranging from Amy Winehouse to Hozier.
Thirdstory is currently testing out their new material in front of live audiences, receiving feverish applause nightly. This Fall, they will embark on their first-ever headlining tour across the U.S. that will conclude with two homecoming shows in N.Y. (see dates below).
Young, stylish and talented, Thirdstory quickly bonded over their shared love of music, and, more so, their musical influences, upon meeting. Before long, Elliott Skinner, Ben Lusher and Richard Saunders, aka Thirdstory, were belting out songs rich with awe-inspiring harmonies. Their debut full-length album, produced by Malay (Zayn, Frank Ocean), will be released this fall on Verve Records.
