About Band

"3STARKARMA? More like five star vocals combined with an earnest style and high energy performance. Definitely a band to keep an eye on"
- Greg Roche / On-Air Personality / Assistant Music Director DC101 - Washington, D.C.'s Rock Station

"3StarKarma is a band that really impressed me not only with their songs, but the attention to detail within their work. Unexpected harmonies, great guitar, and vocals that really cut through the mix. They're a band with a future."
- JD / On Air Personality / WRXL 102.1 The X, Richmond, VA and WROV 96.3, Roanoke, VA

"3StarKarma sounds big-time. They have a sound that's focused and edgy yet wise from years of honing their chops. The songs are well crafted and powerful and it's only a matter of time before they get the national attention they deserve."
- Jay Smack / Studio B @ WRXL 102.1 The X, Richmond, VA / RVA Magazine www.RVAmag.com

Everything comes back again, evolved, better. It's what it comes back as that defines it. Everything happens for a reason. That's what has brought us together. Through a common bond we present it to the masses, with honesty and passion, to show you that you're alive.

Can you feel it? Can you feel it coming around again, new, but familiar?


The vision of this band is not about reinvention; it's about taking what's around them and making it better and making it theirs. From birth to death, it is Karma that exists as a stark realism, governing how each and every one of us approaches our lives, day in and day out. Paralleling the three major elements of Karma (the good, the bad, and the balance), the music behind 3STARKARMA blends the simple and complex nature of sounds, lyrics, and melodies into a careful balance that ever so captures the thoughts, feelings and situations that may result during each of our lives.

3STARKARMA's hard edge, melodies, emotion, seriousness, humor and lack of inhibition pour out of each song creating a bond between the music and listener. A connection that puts the listener into the song to where they feel like it was written just for or about them. This isn’t just for the band; it's for you.

The band finalized in 2004 and hails from the Northern Virginia/Maryland/D.C. area. Its five points are Mathew Daugherty – vocals, Tony Kwok – guitars, Colin Stevenson – guitars, Bobby DeRosa – bass, and Mike Nager – drums.

In 2005 3SK released their self recorded/produced CD demo 2005 and hit the road playing with some of the area's best bands.

In September, 2006, 3SK released their 3 song EP, the Clearing recorded and mixed by Scott Spelbring (Cinder Road, SR-71, Welbilt, the Speaks) of Dragonfly Studios in Virginia and produced by Scott Spelbring and 3STARKARMA. The CD was mastered by Grammy winner Jay Frigoletto (Saliva, Damage Plan, Linkin Park).

We'll see what happens next...
