    Rob Perez - All Guitars

    Eric Fuller - Bass/Chapman Stick
    Shane Lankford - Vocals

    Rob Perez and Rick Mals got to know each other back in the late 80's when Rob was in a recording
    project with some mutual friends. After the project was completed, Rob moved to NYC in 1987 to play
    the clubs and Rick moved to Boston to attend Berklee. A couple of years later both returned home to
    Pittsburgh, Pa. and ran into one another at a Kings X show but soon lost touch again. It was around this
    time (1991) that Rob was jamming in an improve jam band with keyboardist Rob Klan. They soon lost
    touch as well after buying homes far apart and starting families and business careers.

    Fast forward to 1999... Rob Perez started to get back into writing and composing again and wanted to
    form a group to record with. After not seeing Rick for about 10 years, Rob stopped by the music store
    Rick teaches at to say hello. The two friends rekindled the spark of friendship and after catching up on
    the years that went by decided to work together on Rob's new music. A couple of months later Rob was
    eating dinner with his wife at a local restaurant and in walks Rob Klan with his wife. (The two Rob's now
    lived within 5 minutes of each other and didn't know it.) Being seated across from each other at the
    restaurant, it didn't take long before Rob K. was handed a demo of songs to review. The very first time
    the two jam band buddies sat down to play, it was evident the reforming of that friendship was long

    Topping off the year 1999, Rob Perez meet Eric Fuller and the two quickly formed a friendship that
    resulted in the demo material called "The Visual Cliff Project". After taking a break to finish his degree
    and plan his wedding, Eric returned to the fold permanently for the 2004 "Key To Eternity" album. His
    technical contributions (all things PC related) to the 2003 album "Lyrics For The Living" were essential
    for its success.

    Both "Lyrics For The Living" & "Key To Eternity" sold out of their respective first printings and are now in
    their 2nd pressings. The success of both CD's prompted the band to look for a singer to add another
    dimension to the music. After an exhausting search for the right vocalist that resulted in auditioning a
    handful of really great folks, but none that fit the bill in total. Rob P. happened upon a review on the
    Virtuosity website for the band Orphan Project [] and was blown away. Rob knew the
    powerful and inspiring voice that was present on those mp3's was the guy the band needed. After basic
    tracks were completed for the 3 tunes written for vocals for the 2005 album "Freedom Within", Rob
    contacted vocalist Shane Lankford to see if he would be available and or interested in working on the
    tunes. After hearing the material, Shane contacted Rob and said yes!

    The Freedom Within CD is now in it's third pressing! In 2006, the Perez/Lankford collaboration produced
    a special project called Fall Of Echoes. This 12 track all vocal album showcases Shane's huge talent
    and gave Rob P. the opportunity to write a collection of rock songs that focused more on traditional
    song structures.

    2007 finds VC releasing what some are calling their best yet and who knows whats coming next!
