Formed in the late '90s by Greg McConnell, this group performed around the Toronto area covering traditional country tunes as well as odd countrified covers, such as the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin." On the release of their debut album, Turbines for Speed in 1999, McConnell passed away in his sleep on a camping trip. Rather than call it a day, the group decided to carry on and returned to the studio to record their sophomore effort. Including members of Ron Sexsmith, the Supers, and Blue Rodeo, among others, the band released In Search of the Seven Foot Woman in March 2002. Built on traditional country but with lovely building harmonies, the group has also performed at Canadian Music Week as well as the North By North East Festival.
