Tim McGowan shows on the eleven tracks of the band's debut CD, "No Way Out," that he has an amazing dynamic vocal range in the styles of Ozzy, Whitesnake, Queensryche and more. He also brings a unique style of keyboard prowess to the mix reminiscent of classic players the likes of Jon Lord and Brian Eno, but updating the sound for the 21st century with influences from bands such as Dream Theater. In keeping with the times, he has a style of his own and at times you would swear he was a guitarist. In fact, he also plays guitar on several tracks and his combined keyboard/guitar style is influenced by Vai, Satriani, and Malmsteen. If these guitarists were dedicated keyboardists, it's a very good chance they would be Tim McGowan.
Kevin Schertell is one of Jacksonville Florida's best kept secrets. He rounds off this project with a distinctive guitar style and sound that meshes well with the help of his musical influences that range from King's X, The Beatles, Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation, Marillion, Evergrey, Opeth, and Collective Soul. Kevin has many years of experience in the industry and is a respected player in rock and metal music circles. He was introduced to Tim through a mutual friend and they have performed live side by side on stage over the last several years finally coming to the conclusion that together they have something special to offer the rock community.
