In 2010, Vertical Current collaborated with local hit-maker Donald Robinson to make their debut EP "aRe". This year the band worked with young super producer, Steve Mckie, to record their first full length cd which will be entitled "Bright Side of Midnight". Over the course of the last year or so the band has grown to include vocalists Chartel Findlater and Shelia Moser. VC has also been known to have a surprise guest on occasion. For instance the band was joined by Eric Roberson at a recent show. Individually, members of this band have recorded and performed with a wide variety of artists from Earth Wind & Fire to Darryl Hall so you never know who might show up.
