Biography

The story of RSP begins just South of Detroit in 1997. Longtime friends Jeff Howey (Guitar) and Darrell Robertson (Drums) found themselves in the midst of putting together a new music project and searching for a vocalist with a powerful and distinct voice. At just about the same time, longtime friend Rick Stafford returned to Detroit from several years in San Francisco, where he had honed his skills to become just the throat that Jeff and Darrell had in mind. The three had been friends as children, growing up and playing together in the actual “Ray Street Park” located in Riverview, Michigan, and now found themselves using that common bond as the starting point for something that would eventually become far greater than each individual had ever dreamed.

Adding female vocalist Schell Robertson and bassist Tom Jeffers, the band known as Ray Street Park went on to release their self-titled debut in 1999, which sold more than 1,500 copies. Performing steadily as both an original band and a four set a night cover outfit, the band had grown leaps and bounds by the end of 2001, when they decided to part ways with Schell and pursue a more balls-out, powerful sound that had thus far eluded them.

Emerging from Pete Bankert’s infamous Rock City Studios in the winter of 2002 with their sophomore release “Lubricated”, Ray Street Park had finally become the mature, emotion-laden, power-packed ball of thunder that the three founding members had envisioned six years before.
