Since the release of its first international album “New Map of the World”, the Paul Colman Trio has been criss-crossing the United States and Europe spreading a serious message wrapped up in an infectious blend of power pop and rock music. The masses quickly took notice, propelling pc3’s singles “Turn” and “Run” to #1 in the US and turning out in droves for its tour appearances with labelmates Third Day and FFH.
The music industry responded as well, with Radio & Records magazine naming the band on its annual list of Top 10 Breakthrough Artists, the Recording Academy bestowing a Grammy nomination for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album, and the Gospel Music Association honoring the trio as New Artist of the Year at the 2003 Dove Awards.
Back home, Australian media was taking notice too. The trio headlined Channel 7 News (Melbourne), and secured national coverage on ABC TV’s 7:30 Report with Kerry O’Brien. Now, pc3 is ready to play its first national tour since relocating overseas.
Sponsored by Youth Alive (Victoria), JohnNine.com, plus several radio stations including FM103.2 (Sydney), Light FM (Melbourne) and 96Five (Brisbane), the pc3 One Tour is set to play in major centres across Australia.
