ROGER MCGOWAN, VOCALS 

In 1978 - at the age 19 - I started my first band PARYS (Paris) and toured the U.S. playing top 40/classic rock. Fast forward many years, numerous bands and performances, to 2018 ATX and Killin’ Time.  EDIT HERE BY LORRIE:  Roger's either too humble or lazy.  I could make up stuff but I'd rather track him down and get him try to remember all the cool music he's done.  So stay tuned... it may take a while. 

LORRIE SINGER, VOCALS

A Texas girl born and raised, listened to Motown hits on KILT in Houston.  Grew up and joined a band. Toured nationally and internationally and shared the stage with lots of hitmakers including James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler, The Beach Boys, Earth Wind and Fire, The Isley Brothers, Tracy Nelson, Elton John, the Village People, Jay Leno and more.  In Colorado she sang lead with The Legendary 4Nikators, and with Chris Daniels in Spoons.

CHRIS JOHNSON, BASS 

Bassist Chris Johnson was born and raised in Oak Cliff, TX – and though he was introduced to the music of Bob Dylan and the Beatles by his two older brothers, he was most inspired by the Stax and Motown soul he heard coming from late night Dallas radio. Moving to Austin in the 1980’s to attend UT, Chris’ education was mostly fueled by the burgeoning Austin music scene. Over the years, Chris has toured Texas, the US, and the world, performing with such legendary artists as Willie Nelson and Roky Erickson – all the while maintain his passion for sweet soul music. These days, in addition to Killin’ Time, Chris can be heard performing with the Booker T. and the MGs inspired ensemble McLemore Avenue, and with soul singer Nakia.
