Three Sheet not limited to hip hop 

New music: Three Sheet have been making waves with their organic hip-hop.

"If you owed me $2.50 I'd say you owed me a 2.50-sheet," says Matt Kliffer, lyricist and beatboxer. "It's something that has yet to exist, it's not printed by the government. We're our own kind of currency."

Three Sheet---Kliffer (AKA Expedyte), bassist Kevin Tilley, beatboxer EMC (Eric McIntyre), guitarist Ryan O'Quinn and vocalist Vanessa Furlong---have been making waves with their organic hip-hop, especially since their Thursday night residency at Elephant and Castle took off this winter after the group appeared at an open mic.

Because the quintet, whose debut LP will be out in July, isn't a straight rock band or a straight hip-hop group---and not a rap-rock outfit---they fit divergent bills.

"We wanted to make a solid hip-hop group that's not limited to a hip-hop realm. We haven't even gotten on any hip-hop bills except our own," says Kliffer, laughing. "We get a lot of people who like us who don't like hip-hop. Any type of person, we've had them out on the floor dancing."

Three Sheet appear June 13 at the North Street Church and every Thursday at Elephant and Castle.
