Robert ParleeRobert Parlee
Robert Parlee was born in Pasadena, California, and is the youngest of four brothers. His soulful vocals capture unique melodies and consistently deliver. When you listen to him perform you know instantly he was born a musician. Not only are his vocals amazing, but Robert is an extraordinarily gifted piano player and lead guitarist. An athlete in his early years, he did not start playing music until age seventeen after he fell in love with Bowie, Elton John and the WHO. Robert formed the band "Picture" and was discovered by multi-platinum producer, Spencer Proffer (Quiet Riot, Motley Crue). The band changed the name to "Isle of Man" and they signed to Pasha/CBS; their video "Desperate Surrender" played in heavy rotation on MTV. For platinum selling artist Jude Cole, Robert played keyboards and sang backup until he partnered with Ron Ellow (producers for the hit band Lifehouse) and formed the band Lonesome Romeos, signing with Curb/MCA records from 1989-1996. During this time they released two albums with their single "Sweet Janine" picking up regular rotation on KLOS Radio in Los Angeles. Their songs can be found in several movies such as: Wedding Bells Blues and Power 98. In 1999, Robert signed with Evening Star Records as the duo Jensen/Parlee.

Robert is a devoted father of four children. His talents as a multi-instrumental songwriter help create powerful vocal arrangements and increase the production quality for both the band and fans alike. He has been part of the songwriting team of Casey/Parlee/Rap since 2000.

Dana WoodsDana Woods
As most who are destined to create music Dana Woods calling was apparent early in her life. A mere infant, she was drawn to the power of music when her elder brother (who throughout her life has posed a large musical influence on her) began to take piano lessons. Danas crib shared a wall with the room in which her brother practiced and instantly the sound of a child mimicking the sound of scales could be heard through out her home. One might say Dana Woods learned to sing before she could speak.

A natural talent, Woods felt comfortable on stage and began performing for audiences at the age of six. Throughout the years to follow Woods participated in dozens of competitions; often earning the highest honors.

She devoted her time to music not only competing but performing for charities, benefits, and private parties. One of her most proudest moments was when she was asked to perform the lead vocals in the Musical Finale for the Memorial Day Service at the L.A. National Cemetery in 1991, which was televised.

Since, Woods has been singing back up for Jannel Rap's solo project and was there to hear the news that Gina had gone missing. Seeing the struggle of Jannels efforts, Woods jumped on board in anyway she could to help the cause. In 2006, when approached to not only join as a band but a force with Clementine, to gain more awareness for the missing, Woods was all for it.

Woods had the honor of sharing the stage as a vocalist and musician with the likes of musical talent such as Sophie B Hawkins, Giant Drag, Wonderlove, Don McLean, Nickel Creek, Jannel Rap, The Yardbirds, Eddie Money, Dirty Little Secret, Midnight Movies, Lucinda Williams, Silverson Pickups and more.

Jeffrey WayneJeffrey Wayne
Jeffrey was born into a country western family in Tucson, Arizona, that included legendary actor and singer Rex Allen. After attending Grand Canyon College on a music scholarship he joined the band RHEMA which eventually would sign with Curb/MCA. Once the band recorded their debut album he began getting calls to play on national commercials produced by Frank Zappa keyboardist, Allen Zavod and had the dubious honor of playing the "ALIENS" in one the movie "Voyage of the Rock Aliens".

Jeffrey started Nomad Productions in 1990 and the production team would go on to work with Phillip Bailey, Richard Marx and International Star Search winner Banig. Jeffrey would also write and produce songs for legendary R&B artists The Whispers and Stephanie Mills as well as working directly with music publishing company Famous Music.

Jeffrey began working with legendary record maverick Nik Venet and Evening Star in 1996. After Nik Venet's death, Jeffrey was elected the new President of Evening Star before leaving to accept another job as President of Hautlab Records in New York, NY. He made the pre-Grammy ballot as Producer of the Year in 1998 and again in 2005 for his work as producer on Jannel Rap's Sea of Red and Kaleidoscope albums.

In early 2003 Jeffrey formed the Chimera Production Group with ex-Lonesome Romeos front
man, Robert Parlee, and Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Jannel Rap. Based in Nashville as a publishing company, their song Must Have Been the Water has been on hold by several major country artists including Keith Urban, Gary Moore and Blake Shelton.
