PAUL COLMAN TRIO (PC3) - BIOGRAPHY
Put simply, the Paul Colman Trio is a phenomenon.
Formed in Melbourne in 1998, the Paul Colman Trio features Paul Colman
(lead singer/ songwriter/ guitarist), Grant Norsworthy (bass/ vocals)
and Phil Gaudion (drums/ percussion/ vocals).
Named as Artist of the Year in 2000 and 2001 by The Rock
Across Australia (TRAA) charts, the Australian pop-rock trio has
been selling out venues, and gathering a reputation for its unbeatable
live shows for the past four years.
With stellar performances at Australias leading Christian events
and festivals Youth Alive, Sonfest, Blackstump, Forest Edge,
and the Australian Gospel Music Festival plus New Zealands
Parachute Festival, and Californias Spring Celebration, the Paul
Colman Trio is well prepared to join Third
Day on a 42-city Come Together tour in February-April 2002.
Affectionately known as PC3, the trio has garnered unrivalled airplay
throughout Australia with nine radio singles going Top 5 Fill
My Cup (#3), Dip (#3), The Killing Tree (#2), Your Sweet Voice (#2),
Turn (#1), Sundown (#1), Live It (#3), Africa (#4) and Dip live
(#3). The latter two are still charting.
The band has released four independent albums: Serious Fun, Turn,
PC3 Live (Electric), PC3 Live (Acoustic) each one a best
seller. And total CD sales are now approaching gold status.
Australias largest selling newspaper, the Herald-Sun has
recognised the trio as forming the leading edge of Contemporary Christian
Music in Australia, citing PC3s success as indicative of the way
Christian music is heading.
The Bulletin (which incorporates Newsweek) has highlighted
the trios contribution to Christian popular culture, and the Salvation
Armys national youth magazine Venue has declared that the guys
are fast becoming a household name.
One things for sure, the Paul Colman Trio aims to inspire and
empower people in their lives, and to encourage them to keep considering
where theyre at in their relationship with God.
The main message is simple,
says Paul Colman.
Love God, and love others thats
the central part of Jesuss teaching."
The Paul Colman Trios latest CD New Map of the World is
scheduled for international release early 2002.
