Profile Rare melodic hard rock indie coming from San Rafael, California,US, recorded one record in 1996 and produced by Neal Harris and Chequered Past. Obscure independent release that nods to the 80s, but is definetely a cool transitional album that blends 90s elements with 80s hard rock roots and includes some fiery axework and powerful vocals.

Formerly lead guitarist of Chequered Past and instrumental progressive rock band Rhythm Slaves, Michael Creamer has won numerous guitar accolades and has recently written and recorded several solo acoustic instrumentals. Formerly the front man of Chequered Past, Tom Holmes is a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter who also performs with Revolver Expanded 60s review and The Liddypudlians, a popular Marin County 25-piece Beatles tribute ensemble. Michael and Tom are long time friends, band-mates and writing partners.
