Tom Cochrane & Red Rider is what the band Red Rider renamed themselves to after their fourth album, Breaking Curfew. Their first album under the new name was the eponymous Tom Cochrane & Red Rider, which yielded the hit Boy Inside The Man.
The band released one more studio album, Victory Day, and a Symphonic live album, The Symphony Sessions, before Tom Cochrane left the group to pursue a solo career. Members of Red Rider continued to play on his solo albums but Ken Greer did not.
In 2002, Tom Cochrane reunited with Red Rider, and they recorded two new tracks for Trapeze, a greatest hits compilation that includes material both from Red Rider and Tom Cochrane's solo career. They then recorded a new album, No Stranger, although the album was released under Tom Cochrane, not Tom Cochrane and Red Rider, perhaps to capitalize on the success of Tom Cochrane's solo career.
The style between Red Rider, Tom Cochrane & Red Rider, and Tom Cochrane music is very similar musically and lyrically, and Tom Cochrane was the strongest creative force behind Red Rider (thus their name change to Tom Cochrane & Red Rider), so it is arguable that there is any difference between each 'group'.
