Paul Colman Trio (often stylised as pc3) is an Australian Contemporary Christian music group composed of Paul Colman, Phil Gaudion, and Grant Norsworthy. The band released four studio albums, two live albums, and several Christian radio hit singles such as Turn, The Selfish Song, and Fill My Cup. Their major-label studio album debut New Map of the World (2002) received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album. Paul Colman started his career as a solo artist, releasing two albums in the 1990s. Then with pc3, he produced two more studio albums and two live albums, before breaking into the United States market with the pc3 Live Acoustic album. That was followed by two more studio albums and worldwide touring before announcing in February 2004 they would be "taking a break as a recording/performing band", citing "financial and family considerations" as primary reasons.

In April 2009, Paul Colman Trio re-formed after a five year break for a reunion show at Easterfest in Toowoomba, QLD, Australia.[citation needed] In 2011, PC3 is once again confirmed as one of the headline artists at Easterfest (22–24 April 2011).[citation needed] From 13–17 April, Paul Colman Trio will tour several major cities in Australia.[citation needed]

Early January 2011, PC3 spent a week in Nashville, TN, USA, and started recording of a new 11-song album which is scheduled to be released in April 2011.[dated info][citation needed]
