Artist’s Information:

Kansas is a progressive rock band which formed in Topeka, Kansas, United States in 1970. The band is best known for their international hit singles “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Dust In The Wind”.

The band’s classic lineup consisted of Steve Walsh (vocals, keyboards), Richard Williams (guitar), Kerry Livgren (guitar), Robby Steinhardt (violin, vocals), Dave Hope (bass) and Phil Ehart (drums). The band currently consists of Walsh, Ehart, Williams, Billy Greer (bass) and David Ragsdale (violin).

The debut album, Kansas, was released in March 1974, nearly a year after it was recorded in New York. It defined the band’s signature sound, a mix of American-style boogie-rock and complex, symphonic arrangements with changing time signatures. Steinhardt’s violin was a distinctive element of the group’s sound and set them apart from other progressive rock groups of the era. The band slowly developed a cult following, due to promotion by Kirshner and extensive touring for the debut album and its two follow-ups, Song for America and Masque.

Kansas released its fourth album, Leftoverture, in November 1976, which produced a hit single, “Carry On Wayward Son”, in 1977. The follow-up, Point of Know Return, released in October 1977, featured the title track and “Dust in the Wind,” both hit singles.
