Third Hand Music or 3HM in short is a Kenyan band with unique individuals who bring their explosive talent together to create a unique and original sound.
The band is made up of three members, Collins “Collo” Kemboi, a singer/songwriter whose signature voice identifies the band’s music, Ken-Albert Orwa, who is a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, and finally we have Michael “Ikole” Mwikamba who is a bass/low range vocalist and songwriter.
Their sound is best described as R&B/Soul. They blend their musical talent to create a magical soulful sound which incorporates soulful vocals, the guitar, keys and different range of instruments.
They also creatively fuse Hip-Hop, Rock and Reggae into their music. Having officially began in October 2014, they have been live performing all over Nairobi in popular festivals such as “The Ongea Festival 2016”, “Usanifu National Creative Economy Conference”, “An Evening of AfroJazz”, “JunkFest” among others.
Their debut single “Helena” whose video was launched in 2016 put them on the map, making them scoop the Akademia Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Music Video, June 2016. They have also released a second single ‘In the Air’ which has made them a topic of discussion in Standard Media and UP Magazine as the smoothest vocals in Kenya.
Third Hand Music has one official music video out; “Helena” and a fun lyric video to their second single “In The Air”.
