. . . your power source since 2003
 
Generating from The Haight in San Francisco, bad-boy 'sleaze-rocker' Ron Yocom (guitars/boy vocals) and industrial goth priestess Sarine Voltage (keyboards/programming/girl vocals) band together to make the "Now Wave" hip-pop sounds of The Power of 3.
          *   *   *
Ron’s hard-rock riffing slices through Sarine’s mood-setting melodic keyboards as they trade off lead and backing vocals--the programmed drums and bass are tight, giving the impression that a full-tilt rhythm section is backing them.

Prolific songwriters, the lyrical content hits as real, unique, and cleverly delivered. The P.O.T.  promotes love and peace, having fun, making magick, and being/thinking for yourself. In live performances, the energy generated is magnitudinal, primal, and commands attention
as this  dynamic duo rip through their now 60+ song repertoire of Now Wave hip-pop tunes. Your power source since 2003.

Distributed innovatively on a ‘sliding scale‘ basis. What?! That’s right, The P.O.T. was the first to come up with a “pay what you like (or have)” policy for getting their music...
        WHAT?!?                                                                                                      
         That's right. If you're seeing hard financial times, pay what you can...if times are great, send a bunch of cash!
        WHY?!?
        The P.O.T.'s about making cool music, not the most money...and we like FREEDOM OF CHOICE, don't you?

   So yeah, if someone wants the music, they should be able to get it. Right? No money? No problem, you still get the tunes. And for those of who're rolling in it, if the music is something you're digging on and you want to make sure it keeps being created, what a cool and easy way to help make that happen (like the lady who sent $80 for the six song CD "6 x 2"...WAY appreciated!)... and it helps make it possible for the ones who're crying in the financial weeds to have the sounds too. So, bottom line, making money or not making money, making music is The Shit and everyone who wants it should have it...getting in the flow, right?
