Post 49th parallel Canadian rock with Barry Allen on lead guitar. Painter was formed by guitarist Danny Lowe and Dorn Beattie. We were based first in Calgary, AB, and later in Seattle. Our music combined a heavy metal approach with countryish ballads. We were managed by Bob Zimmerman (No not the Dylan guy) who secured us a contract with Electra Records in Los Angeles. Our first single was "West Coast Woman", which did exceptionally well on the charts throughout North America. We showcased at the Whiskey a Go Go and went out on numerous tours with Jethro Tull, Steely Dan, KISS, Rod Stewart, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Canned Heat, just to name a few. One of our New York performances was broadcast on the nationally-syndicated radio program, King Biscuit Flower Hour. Despite our success, Electra did not like our direction. We parted ways and moved over to Mercury Records, changing our name to Hammersmith in the process.
