Profile Private AOR/Rock band from Rochester, NY released their one and only record in 1984 through Magic Mountain Music. The band gain radio airplay with the single “Just A Pair Of Strangers” while the tour in North America in 1985 with high success. Great vocals and smokin’ guitar lines, along with their hard-edged harmonic sounds on tunes like “Just A Pair of Strangers” “Waste Of Time” and “Calling”, make it an album that deserve your attention. Except the song “Sandra”, a funky one, the rest of the songs rocks, think 38 Special, Outlaws but not quite Southern Rock  just good old rock and roll and very good keys overall.
