Underdog Champs
Underdog Champs
Formed in the summer of 2014 as a recording project of Mark Bradley, Nick Jones, and other potential studio members, the group decided to play live in February 2015 with the lineup of Bradley on vocals, Jones on guitar/vocals, Josh Bailey on drums, Justin Mason on bass, and Tyler Mazza on guitar. The group released two singles, "Take Me Back" and "When the World Ends" which captured the essence of the original project. Recorded by only Bradley, Jones, and drummer James Adelsberger, the songs give listeners an idea of the potential of the full project with catchy yet refreshing pop/rock hooks.

"Picked Last", the band's most recent effort combines the influences of each member's past and present projects. The music is accompanied by 3 videos, each aiming to capture the high-energy live show of the band. The project is supposed to be "different from everything that's out there. It's an art project and an EP all at once", according to Bradley.

Biography
Order a physical copy of our album "Slow Me Down," here: http://3PM-music.com/store. Also available digitally on iTunes and Spotify.

Baltimore pop rock trio 3PM has an undeniable and captivating spirit. That spirit is easy to see in their genuine and dynamic performances and even easier to hear in their new, unmistakably catchy pop rock sound, borrowed from their pop punk roots. And finding this unique sound has just been a part of their journey in discovering their true identity. Their melodic, fresh music has been thrilling fans and attracting notice from a wide swath of industry press. PopWrapped magazine praised the group's "own new rebellious yet heartfelt sound". The success of their sophomore album established a name for 3PM on the east coast and attracted a growing and dedicated fanbase. The upcoming release is an exciting, new page for 3PM, bringing their sound to the leading edge of today's trends and destined to turbocharge their fan base and reach countless new fans.


In forming the trio in 2012, Brandon Millman (drummer) reached out to a friend's little brother, fresh faced 13-year-old Scott Montgomery (guitarist). The two then turned to - what else - social media to add a new vocalist, finding Aaron O'Connor (lead vocals) on Twitter. Their freshman effort "Change of Plans" and simultaneous release of hit single "Perfect for Me" in early 2013 helped the group develop a strong following in their hometown. The band then recorded their eagerly awaited sophomore album "Slow Me Down" with well-known producer Paul Leavitt. Released in 2014, "Slow Me Down" turned heads, earning the boys a chance to prove themselves with a spot on the 2015 Vans Warped Tour as a catering band. During their time on the Warped Tour, "Slow Me Down" peaked on the Billboard charts at #27 Top Rock Albums, #2 Heatseekers, #18 Alternative and #19 Independent, helping push total sales for the album to 20,000 copies.


With many looking to see what they would do next, the band spent countless hours working on taking their music to the next level and emerged with a style all their own. Their writing attracted the attention of multi-platinum producer Matt Squire, who has produced breakout records for artists such as One Direction, Panic! at the Disco, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato. 3PM and Squire are currently busy in the studio creating the next new sound. Be on the lookout for this next incarnation of 3PM.
