Their journey is as old as time itself. They have had many names and many faces. Some believe that the apportioners are cruel, but there is nothing further from the truth. The Fates simply give to all what is their lot: birth, death, and all that is in between.
Theophania learned to sing at a young age and developed her sultry yet angelic singing style curiously through a mix of influence by an operatically trained mother and starring in musicals singing showtunes. As a child she explored ballet, tap and jazz lessons and later adapted her moves in the dance clubs of the west coast's alternative/electronic music scene. Theo now employs her engaging skills with the band on the stage and in the recording studio. When she shows up onstage dressed in greek styled attire, it is not indicative of a severe god complex, but rather that of a temperate goddess.
Forest declared at the age of 5 years old, "I don't like music." He has regretted that statement ever since. To make up for it, he has learned to play a number of different instruments, guitar being his primary focus, and also began composing music. His influences are broad and eclectic, and his writing style is a uniquely satisfying amalgam of his tastes and new contributions. Forest has a diverse array of experience onstage ranging from theatre to music festivals.
James met Forest in line to get books for their high school geometry class and when informed that Forest got the last one announced, "I think I need to be his friend." They have been best friends ever since. He spent many of those years, and time in college, performing on the stage in a variety of roles. His interest in the music and natural showmanship made him an obvious choice for keyboards. Progressively going blind from a degenerative ocular condition, he sometimes needs help finding the keyboard onstage, but knows precisely what to do once he gets there delivering fantastically catchy bass lines and piano work.

Enjoy some exotic electro music for the people. by www.subba-cultcha.com For those that think that Portishead is a bit too much for them, The Three Fates might be more palatable for them. But what The Three Fates do is dish out of deliciously developing electro Goth tinged trip hop. Their debut album ‘Mythos For The Masses’, is dowsed in a coating of myth, exoticness, and progressiveness. Plus it’s not just the album title and the title of tracks such as ‘Adonis & Aphrodite’, ‘Wings of an Arkhe’, and ‘Sacrificing Andromeda’ (some of these Greek and mythic title you’ll have to look up on Wikipedia to find out more). But also the Portland, Oregon, based 3 piece, have an mythic and exotically named lead singer Theophania, on their MySpace is says its pronounced thee-oh-fan-ee’-ah in case you weren’t sure.
Theophania’s sultry voice often tickles the underbelly of a dark Madonna throughout their debut album. Particularly on the country and western tinged hoedown ‘Helios’ which suddenly finds itself diving into a pool of electronics and what sounds like slap bass. Also it wouldn’t be surprising if people are dancing and waving their arms around like manic trees to the wondrous and head swilling ‘Elysian Fields.’ The aforementioned ‘Adonis And Aphrodite’ is an electro version of Super Furry Animals dancing with Moby and The Polyphonic Spree dancing in some neon hued Greek temple, illustrious and luscious. The baritone organ of the sweet ‘The Iron Queen’ is something that Madonna would probably kill to have, the second half of which then turns into a dark bubbling cauldron of electro squelch. Whilst ‘Foolish Boy’, recalls Tori Amos before getting mixed up. ‘The Dionysian Discotheque’ kind of sounds like the title suggests, like we’re in some mythical nightclub in ancient Greece before throwing in some complicated guitar structure for good measure.
Although the album loses it pace and sense of adventure in the last couple of tracks, its still an album which is unlike anything you’ll hear this year and manages to create something new and exciting, and it definitely has a spirit of independence which will definitely intrigue.
So The Three Fates ‘Mythos For The Masses’ is one of the most funnest albums you’ll hear all year despite some of the seriousness of it. Maybe then you can listen to Portishead and get into them a bit more, or understand them more. But more than anything if you’re ready for some dance and electronic bliss it’s an album which is well and truly recommended.
