Third Person Omega is a heavy progressive band which formed last summer.  Calvin Freeman fronts the band, Elishawan Johnson on guitar, Freedome Phillippe handles bass & vocals, Ian Jackson takes care of drums, Joshua Mason on guitars & vocals and on keys & sampling Vince Cline.  


You guys are working on new music, how far along are you in writing the upcoming EP / Album?  

I (Ian) had known Freedom and Josh for a while before we formed TPO. Josh found out that Coheed and Cambria were playing in Indianapolis and suggested that Free and I go with him and Eli, who was playing guitar in Josh's band at the time. On the way to the show, Eli points out that Freedom has a really cool name (which is true). Free points out that they marched in the UofL band with a guy named O'mega. From that point, the rest of the trip up to, during, and after the Coheed show, we had personified Omega as a big buff dude who only speaks in the third person. On our way back we joked about how Third Person Omega sounded like a cool band name. From there we decided to part ways from our respective bands and form TPO.


The band started off in the summer of 2015.  How much different are you guys from where you were and where you will be in the summer of 2017?

In 2015 we started off as a 4-piece with Josh pulling double-duty on guitar and vocals. We had - and still have - a lot of drive and enthusiasm for playing together and writing. It got to the point that we were writing pretty much a whole new song every week, so productivity was never an issue. At one point we had about 10 fully fleshed out songs with like 20 really solid ideas we wanted to work with. It got to the point where Josh wasn't gonna be able to continue singing and playing at the same time, so we started looking for a vocalist. We went through about 6 different vocalists before we found Calvin, and he's been a great addition to the band. He's been more than eager to put vocals to songs that previous singers were unable or unwilling to even try with. Around the same time we got the singer before Calvin, our good friend Vince joined up with us on keys. And the best part about Vince is that he has such a good ear for music that he can pick up almost any instrument and make it work to his advantage. On top of that, here in 2017-land we've got a much fuller schedule than in 2015 and 2016 as far as shows go. Productivity is higher than it's ever been now, too, with Ian sitting on almost an album's worth of material that he alone has written. Plus we've started production on our debut album.


You've participated in those battle of the bands/ band challenges throughout your career.  Describe the wild ride that takes place when you enter these type of "battle of the bands" events.

The wild part about it was the nerves and rush of performing. We were still a 4-piece at the time, so for most of us it was the first time we had performed in this type of setting. Up until we had actually started playing it was pretty intense. All of that seemed to melt away though once we got into the meat of our set. Everything felt so natural after we played those first few notes. Other than that, we tended to look at it less like a competition and more like a fun networking opportunity. We made some great friends with some of the bands we competed against and played with. We weren't really focused all that much on winning, rather just having a good time with everyone.


You guys are working on new music, how far along are you in writing the upcoming EP / Album?  

We actually have all the material for the album written and demos recorded for all of it. We just started tracking drums with our good friend Drew Harper and are making good progress in that department. We're looking to track guitars and bass with Frank Littlefield as well, and then Free's going to do the mix and master for it. At the moment we have album art picked out and I think we've decided on a name as well. We're currently looking to a late summer release.


What do you guys hope to have accomplished by the end of 2017?

Obviously we'd like to release our album by the end of the year, but on top of that we're looking to play a lot more shows and make a bunch of new friends with other bands. Despite having formed in 2015, we're looking to make 2017 the year where we really make a name for ourselves.


You're opening up for the Unplugged Trapt show next Saturday at Madison Live!  Will you be doing an acoustic set?

Absolutely! We've always talked about wanting to arrange our music for an acoustic set, and this gives us the perfect opportunity. With the exception of Freedom, we're all acoustic. Ian finally has a chance to validate the cajon he bought a year and a half ago, and Vince is taking the chance to explore using different instruments. Remember how we said that he can pick up retry much any instrument and make it work? He's been using an ocarina, an accordion, and a few other interesting things during the rehearsals. It's been a nice break overall from going full-out, but we're looking forward to getting back into the full volume practices.
