Chris & Victoria Hardy are 3 feet up. They also happen to be husband and wife. They want to lift people's spirits and send out positive messages with their folk/pop sound. They live just outside of Greensboro, North Carolina and have played music together since June of 2004.

The band exists mostly due to the passing of Victoria's 18 year old son Steven in 2002. Victoria learned how to play drums shortly thereafter and discovered that playing music assisted greatly in her healing.

Chris writes the songs, plays the acoustic guitar, bass guitar and vocalizes. He says that his old songs were mainly about his own frustrations and who wants to hear that? Formerly the bassist and leader of the band "Nervous Boy", Chris played his "Foo Fighters-meets-Primus" songs all over the southeast. His newer songs, written specifically for 3 feet up, are far more positive.

Live, they seem to not lack anything (even though they have no bass player) and are quite symmetrical onstage with Victoria's standup drumkit right up front next to Chris.

The two cite influences as diverse as Mike Doughty, Dave Brubeck, Dave Matthews, Robyn Hitchcock, Foo Fighters, John Mayer, Sting, Steely Dan and way more.
