“I hope you’ve fastened your seatbelts,” says the elated president of Maxx Recordings Mitchell Solarek. “Kudos to a great team with a strong independent heart. It is humbling and energizing to see ‘most added’ beside our debut act 3for3. These three guys have worked really hard to bring a strong message in their music and we couldn’t be more proud than to launch our label with this news and this group,” he added.

3for3 has been traveling the US over the past month introducing their new music and themselves to the industry and fans to a great response. During the introductory tour, the guys were also invited to participate in the Charlotte leg of the inaugural Special Olympics Unified Relay Across America and walked away knowing how special it is for their music to resonate as soundly as it is, evidenced by the response they received at the relay.

“What an honor to be able to debut our music amongst some of the most inspiring people,” says Spencer Lloyd of 3for3. “To be a part of an event that is designed to mobilize a nation for inclusion and respect echoes our mission with our music,” continued Josh Davis of 3for3.

“Halfway,” co-written by the group’s Benji Shuler, along with Sam Mizell and Emily Weisband, is a song about God’s unconditional love and that it is never halfway.  “We are loved by him all the way,” says Shuler. “We produced this song pumped with energy, as we feel it should be given the message of being loved so strongly,” he continued.

3for3 is planning a busy summer with the release of “Halfway” today, an EP on July 24th and a major tour announcement soon. Their vast array of influences and talent, coupled with a message of Hope, will appeal to a diverse audience as the trio heads out to share their story and make an impact on today’s generation.
