Profile The band hailed from Portland, Oregon and was led by the married couple Gordy (guitars, backing vocals) and Tamara Deems (lead and backing vocals). Of course the looks are a plus in a female-fronted band, but even more important is the quality of the lady’s voice and it has to be said, Tamara is the proud owner of an immense set of tonsils. All songs are written and arranged by her hubbie and she sures knowns how to perform them in a powerful way. As a matter of fact, she reminds me of Pat Benatar in her heydays. Among the best songs on offer are the up-tempo opening song “Drive It In”, “No More Lies” (Heart meets Benatar), “How Can You Do It” (with some tasty axework from Gordy) and “Walking With An Angel”.
