Winter Rose

Penetanguishene, Ontario

Winter Rose was a hard rock band that was active in the 1980s. They recorded a series of demos through 1988 and 1989, which were commercially released in the mid-90's by InsideOut Music. It was their only album.  They are best remembered as the band that James LaBrie fronted before joining Dream Theater. However, their guitarist Richard Chycki has gone on to become a successful freelance studio engineer and has worked on many projects internationally, including Rush with Alex Lifeson, Aerosmith, Skillet, Mick Jagger, and many, many more.
