Known as one of the top live rock bands in the southeast and midwest. With influences like Tonic, Toad The Wet Sprocket and the Goo Goo Dolls the music of 7 Sharp 9 is an intelligent blend of 'thick vocals, driving bass, drums as good as Peart, and scorching guitars' (Southeast Performer Magazine Review). This Atlanta-based band has been busy since Georgia fans voted them the 'Best New Local Band' in Creative Loafing's 'Best Of Atlanta 2002' issue:
- MTV's Real World and Road Rules shows licensed 7s9's entire 'Frame By Frame' CD. All 13 tracks were accepted by the producers of the shows.
- 7 Sharp 9 has been ranked #1 on Alternative Addiction.com's Top 10 Unsigned Bands. They are also featured on AlternativeAddiction's latest compilation CD 'The Addiction V.7.'

- 7 Sharp 9 released their 2nd album 'Frame By Frame' in 2005. 2 songs 'Movies' and 'My Way' are already on radio stations nationwide.
- Song 'Alone' from 'Frame By Frame' made it onto a Top Hits USA compilation CD, which is sent to radio, retail and DJ's to keep them informed of the latest music available.
- First release 'Wherever You Are' made it into regular rotations of over 40 stations; it also made it on to TM Century's Rock Disc Compilation as the number one track (this disc is sent to radio, retail and dj's, similar to the Top Hits USA compilation).
- Their second single 'Words,' received an even bigger response, making it on to 80+ radio stations.
- MTV's The Real World and Road Rules shows have licensed four songs from 'Gathering.'
- MTV's 'Room Raiders' show has used 7 Sharp 9 material.
