BEHIND THE MUSIC
It is a rare thing to convey words in such a meaningful and refreshing manner, but with their passionate, cutting-edge style, 3 WEST does so in their music and lively performances. An acoustic duo, originally from New Jersey, and now performing out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 3 WEST performs over 200 shows a year and is one of the most booked acts in the Tri-State area. With their range of music interests, you can hear them perform their country/pop originals, acoustic renditions of some of the most current popular hits, as well as some favorites from years past. Their dynamic style and unique talent gained them opportunities to perform on the ABC, NBC, and FOX Morning Shows, in addition to having the incredible opportunity to perform at the top of Rockefeller Center in New York City, as well as being featured on The Rachael Ray Show!
3 WEST embraces the opportunity to share their music on all different platforms. Currently, their schedule includes playing at bars, colleges, weddings, and private events. While touring colleges across the U.S., they have had the opportunity to perform for students at North Dakota State University, Princeton University, Rutgers University, Illinois State University, and many more! As their fan base continues to grow, 3 WEST was voted #1 for E! Network's "Opening Act" video contest by online viewers in 2012. In 2011, Nissa & Matt were honored to perform their first international show in the Dominican Republic. They have had additional recent opportunities in which they have been asked to perform in Key West, Turks & Caicos, and other beautiful locations.
3 WEST is thrilled to be actively working on new original music, and they currently have several songs available on iTunes. In 2011, 3 WEST released their first single "Crazy Amazing" and performed it live on "Good Morning New Orleans". In March 2013, they began traveling back and forth to Nashville working on their upcoming album which features many talented touring and session musicians, including Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson), Pat Buchanan (Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, Hall & Oates), Steve Bryant (Brooks and Dunn, Trisha Yearwood), Jason Roller (Wynonna Judd, Kellie Pickler), and many more.
As they recognize the value of music and the hope that is brings, when not touring, Nissa & Matt donate any free time they have with Musicians On Call, an organization that brings live music to the bedside of patients in hospitals all over the country. In June 2013, they were chosen to perform as a featured music act for the MOC Volunteer Spotlight Concert in New York City. In 2013, 3 WEST was also chosen as the official live music act for New York City radio station 103.5 KTU's 2013 Dream Wedding Giveaway!
In March of 2015, they were invited to perform their current
single "Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man" on country radio station

Jana Kramer on May 3rd, 2014.
In May of 2016, 3 West opened for country artist, Chris Lane at The Pullo Center in York, PA for
