My name is James, I play lead guitar and perform lead vocals. On stage I am known as “King James, the Lion Hearted”. I got my first guitar at age 10. At age 14, I joined my first band, and too many to count after that. Then in 1990, the very first rendition of "The Alliance" was born. We started in San Diego California where we put out our first CD. After several years and several performances in California, I went to Japan for three years which was an interesting playing experience to say the least. The Japanese rock out. From there I headed down south to the gulf coast for a few years to play for the great southern folks there. Finally, I moved to the great Northwest where I reside today. Over the years, I pondered... how could I expand my musical vision?
I decided to create an original project developed from just the band playing music, and morph it into something more creative, meaningful, and exciting. So, I wrote the full blown theatrical production of "Writing on The Wall". I took my ongoing childhood love for European castles, knights, swordsmanship, courage and chivalry, and allowed the creative juices to flow. The concept of a medieval castle stage setting with members in full knight attire and a powerful driving Renaissance Rock Rendition was born. I hope you enjoy all aspects of The Alliance production....
My name is Coleen and I play keyboards for The Alliance. My love of music began at a young age. I was strongly influenced by my father who was an accomplished musician. I enjoy a wide variety of music from celtic to classical, jazz, and rock. I began playing keyboards with The Alliance in Japan in 2012 during which the song "Writing On The Wall" was created.
The costumes and the sets have been an artistic expression of mine. I love that our band has a unique presentation with a positive message. Its creativity and energy are contagious. I consider it a blessing to be part of this production.
I am Mike, player of guitars. As a young paige, I started upon my quest for the musical Holy Grail. Known as a tone-chaser, I train obsessively to wield a magical tone capable of defeating the fiercest dragon, pulling a tear from the eye of the mightiest warrior or wooing the fairest maiden. To conjure the most signature tonal spectrums, with a ever humble heart, is my never ending journey. It is an honor to have a chair at the round table of the Alliance.
My name is Robert and I play drums and percussion. Growing up I was a big fan of 80’s rock and heavy metal bands. Today, I still enjoy those bands but I really love today's Christian Rock bands (Red, Skillet, The Letter Black, Thousand Foot Krutch)
While it is the guitars and the riffs that always attracted me to rock music, it is the drum beat that always had me playing “air drums” with every song. With The Alliance, I play a drum kit even my favorite drummer, Neil Peart (Rush), could appreciate.
I am very blessed to be part of The Alliance. I love listening to and playing our music. This band has challenged me to grow and improve as a drummer. I hope you enjoy our unique production and our driving, melodic rock sound. Thank you for supporting us!
