3rd Force

3rd Force is a smooth jazz band on the EMI Higher Octave label,consisting of trio William Aura, Craig Dobbin, and Alain Eskinasi. Founded in 1994 by William Aura after a prolific solo career in new age music, he, Dobbin, and Eskinasi immediately set out working on their self-titled debut album, "3rd Force" which was released that same year. After the album's commercial success, the trio continued the studio project with their next release, "Force of Nature" in 1995. This album garnered an even bigger success than their debut spawning the popular single "Here Comes the Night" featuring guest guitarist Peter White. After a two year break, 3rd Force released their 3rd album "Vital Force" in 1997. The album gained 3rd Force's second hit single "You Gotta Be Real" once again featuring guest guitarist Peter White. The 4th album, called "Force Field", was released in 1999 resulting in another of the band's singles "Revelation of the Heart", with guest saxophonist Paul Taylor. In 2000 Higher Octave released a best-of compilation of 3rd Force, entitled "Collective Force", which featured the band's best hits in both radio and fan favorites,along with two new songs, "Dance With Me" and "Sweet Surrender". 2002 saw the release of their 5th studio album, "Gentle Force", which showcased a mellower jazz sound than the band's usual output. Three years later,3rd Force released their latest album to date, "Driving Force" in 2005. Their latest release showcases a completely opposite style than the previous "Gentle Force" album which was almost lounge-style mellow jazz in sound. "Driving Force", however, features a funky lively jazz mix never before heard in 3rd Force's music. The most popular single from their latest release is "Believe In Me".
