Artist Biography

This Canadian hard rock quartet was formed in 1977 by Richard Whittie (vocals), Robert Sprenger (guitar), Neil Light (bass) and Gregg Hinz (drums). Influenced by Triumph, Rush and Styx, their sole album was characterized by Sprenger’s inventive guitar work and Whittie’s distinctive vocals. Hinz quit to join Helix shortly after the album’s release, with ex-Lone Star drummer Dixie Lee stepping in as replacement. The band split up before any further recordings were made.
