Q5 was formed 1983 in Seattle, Washington by guitarist/inventor Floyd Rose and singer/songwriter Jonathan K. With several songs written and wanting to send a demo out to record companies they enlisted bassist Evan Sheeley, drummer Gary Thompson and guitarist Rick Pierce from local band TKO to help them with recording duties. They submitted the resulting demo to local rock impresario Ken Kinnear, who at the time was manager of internationally-known rock band Heart. Kinnear was so impressed that he signed the band to a management contract and brought in Grammy award-winning  producer Mike Flicker to record the bandʼs first album, “Steel The Light”.
