Third Class makes quirk-pop music in Ohio,
2-note chords, wonky tempos,
fun songs with sad lyrics
and fuzzy undertones, going
strong since 1999.

Third Class, a quirk-pop trio from Youngstown, Ohio, has worked alongside members of Dirty Projectors, The Breeders, Beat Happening, Soda Shop, Juche, Stealing Jane, Adrian Crowley, Doleful Lions, Hellogoodbye, and The Drums. In diligently promoting studio releases, including 2 LPs, and 1 EP which was produced by fan donations, Third Class has performed in OH, PA, KY, NY, ME, TN, MD, NJ, MI, KY, WV, IN, IL, WI, WA, and CT, with acts such as Red Wanting Blue, Nicholas Megalis, Cereal Banter, The Zou, Way Yes, Sam Goodwill, The Leonard Cohen Ensemble, and John Wesley Harding. As published and nominated writers, Third Class’ members create poetically-charged music, riddled with quirky riffs created by two-string guitar, fuzzy bass, cheesy keyboard, straining vocals, and undulating rhythms, often changing tempos. Garnering press coverage from Under The Radar, NBC News, The CW's Let's Go Youngstown, The Ohio Universtiy Post, The Wooster Voice, Cleveland Scene,, Nashville Audition,, K Records,, The Jimmy Fro Indie Music Show, Black Squirrel Radio, Kicksaw Media, Ivy’s Red Sweater, and Indie Monster, Third Class has built a reputation in entertaining audiences with a unique take on the craft of pop music.



What's new with us, lately? We are done recording our new album, Hymns From Some Small Town, a release date is yet to be set, and we are saving up money to produce copies of the album. We received some local writeups, played some stripped-down shows, and recorded some guest vocals for a few friends. More to come. Keep an ear out for our next move, people!
