Three Legged Fox
The ensuing three years have seen 3LF expand their regional fan base as far east as Massachusetts, as far west as Ohio, and north to south from New York to North Carolina, performing regularly at scores of top venues. They have shared the stage with such national recording artists as Jeffrey Gaines, SOJA, Rebelution, John Brown's Body, Passafire, Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad, and Ballyhoo, and are planning their own national tour in support of their second album, "Not as Far" (2009).
The band's first album, "Ideas," (2006) received airplay on more than 170 radio stations nationwide, and led to support from one of Philadelphia's leading alternative stations, Clear Channel's Radio 104.5-FM, where they performed two live broadcasts and earned a spot on the station's "Locals Live" compilation CD.
Members Kyle Wareham (lead vocals, guitar), Mike Brody (lead guitar), Eric Weisenstein (bass), and Kory Kochersperger (drums), compose the band's original songs together with a deft, nuanced style that blends Wareham's soulful vocals with the band's sophisticated instrumental stylings, enhancing their songcraft rather than competing with it -- the mark of a mature musical approach.
3LF's second album, "Not As Far," was produced by prominent recording engineer/producer Chris DiBeneditto at Philadelphonic Studios, and features guest performances by members of several national acts including G. Love & Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid (both fellow Philadelphonic recording artists), SOJA, and John Brown's Body. Fans will find plenty of the reggae influences that marked their first album, but the band's continuing evolution as it explores other aspects of the "organic roots rock" genre is evident in the increasing variety of influences to be heard among the album's 13 songs.
