A Powerful Female Fronted Hard Driving Rock Act , formed in Toronto in 2006 by Lisa Smith and Chuck Page. Stylistically, the band draws inspiration from an eclectic blend of hard rock and heavy metal giants---uniquely channeled by one of the finest and most versatile female vocalists in Canada. Known for unparalleled vocal strength and amazing stamina, easily tackling the raspy feel of David Coverdale or the extremities of Rob Halford /Geoff Tate combined with an undertone of classic styles of R n B Diva's such as Aretha Franklin',/ Etta James. Further adding to their diversity of sound is the complexity of Chuck’s playing---a player steeped in the blues, he lists Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton among his favorites---yet equally adept at the hammering riffs and shredding required of their more metallic offerings, he creates a sound unique to himself. The rock-solid rhythm section is comprised of Peter Greco---a unique percussion stylist, loved for his power-driven yet intricate, precise and solid drum work---and bassist Tim Langan both accomplished studio musicians and live veterans of the North American touring circuit. Together, they create a unique and immediately identifiable groove and their live show renowned and a definite must see !!.
