The band got its name from the founder and keyboard player/lead vocalist, Dixon House. The band's sound was a cross between the vocal sound and melodic hooks of Styx combined with some of the musical prowess and lyricism of Kansas (2), but with heavier guitars using a thinly compressed sound. It also had a female guitarist Chrissy Shefts like Seattle counterpart Heart. Like many rock groups of its day at the dawn of the 1980s, it suffered from poor promotion and record company support.
