This Christian rock band was formed in California in 1984 by Dave Chumchal (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Doug Morris (vocals/guitar). With the recruitment of Robert Kirk Giverink (guitar), Mariko Martinez (keyboards/vocals), Ronald P. Simmons (bass/vocals) and Bret Kik Keys (drums), their sound was heavily laden with keyboards and characterized by high-pitched, note-perfect harmonies. Their sole release was an impressive collection of melodic AOR that paid respect to Yes and Journey’s blueprint.
