rady Cole would form in the "Kingdom" of Fife in Scotland with Steve Calvert (vocals/guitar), Kris Barclay (guitar/back. vocals), Alex Burrell (back. vocals/bass) and Sean Crossan (drums) in February 2002 in Burrell's studio doing session work for other local bands. Barclay was appearing on a regular basis when he became a member while Burrell had no writing experience before joining the band but had music experience as a live performer at London's Marquee/Astoria before he was realized locally for his songwriting ability, and after a while the other members joined in with Crossan being the last; at age 18 his talent for drumming any style clearly evident.
After playing local venues to an ever increasing support they released a promotional demo album in 2002 with the added track I Am Canadian based on the famous patriotic Molson's Brewery commercial jingle of the same title in an effort to sell themselves to the Canadian market and their new promoter. It certainly got the attention of Molson's brewery that, rumor has it, wanted to negotiate a license for advertising with them but after their demo Album, Sunshine Rays later that same year they split with the Canadian promoter the following year and disappeared from the American market, at least for a time.
