Biography

* David Ragsdale - Violin
* Phil Ehart - Drums
* Richard Williams - Guitar

Not long ago, the members of Kansas found themselves in a bit of an uncertain situation, to say the least. “Three to four years ago, the main writers for Kansas - Steve Walsh and Kerry Livgren - stated that they would no longer be writing for the band Kansas,” explains drummer Phil Ehart. “That didn’t mean that Kerry might not write a song or two for a special project, but that the two of them were done writing any album length material for Kansas. The four of us decided that we were not done yet, and Native Window was born to scratch that ‘new material itch’.”

Soon after, Ehart found himself with his other Kansas bandmates, Richard Williams (guitar), Billy Greer (vocals/bass), David Ragsdale (violin), to see if the non-Walsh fronted line-up could work. It turns out it certainly can, according to Ehart. “We had no idea what it would sound like! We had one criteria - the song had to sound good acoustically. If it sounded good with just acoustic guitar and vocals, then we developed it from there.”

On June 23rd, Native Window will release their self-titled debut album via StarCity Records (run by Jeff Glixman, who produced some of Kansas best-selling releases).
