3 Chord Justice


“I picked up SHADOW MOUNTAIN BAND'S CD on a whim last Saturday night at Pappy and

Harriet’s. Then my 12 year old child and I danced all day Sunday to your

music at home. We LOVE you guys! I hope you don’t mind the rating I

gave your CD on iTunes. It only goes up to 5 stars and that was the most

I could give.”

~ Glen

“This is first class mountain music with echoes of Earl Scruggs,

Bill Monroe, Bob Wills, and Hank Williams. The instrumentals are finely

crafted, but the heart and soul of this CD is in the story telling.

Original tunes paint poignant pictures of real life in close harmony.

It’s a joy. Love it!”

~ Bill Donaldson


What brought TCJ together in March 2008 was a love of the music they

play and a desire to bring it to as many ears as will listen. Hailing

from Missoula Montana singer / songwriter Liz Grace leads TCJ through a

mix of country crafted originals and handpicked covers from the likes of

Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, Patsy Cline

and other country greats. She got an early start singing in bars and

honky-tonks, far before legal age, having to wait in alleys during band

breaks. The rest of TCJ is made up from some of the finest pickers and

grinners from the SoCal country/alt country music scene. Steel guitar, lap-steel, dobro and multi-instrumentalist Tom Wolverton will put a tear

in your beer but don’t blink 'cause guitarist / Tele blaster Jeff Houck

might shoot it right out from under you. Drummer Mark Markowitz powers

the engine room while bassist Dave Preston locks it in and wraps it up


2008 was a great debut year for the band, playing gigs at Gator By the

Bay, December Nights in Balboa Park, and performing with the Zac Brown

Band. 2011 was our busiest year yet with 80 shows under our belt buckles all

over Southern California. 2012 is looking busy as well & we'll be

returning to the studio for our follow up original album! Check out our gigs page, please come to a show & support LIVE music!

Three Chord Justice ain’t looking to change the world…they just want to put a little twang'n your corner of it!
