ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE GROUPS BETWEEN BOTH SECULAR AND CHRISTIAN MUSIC!
Sweet Comfort Band first performed in 1972 in Riverside, California, and were active until 1984. The band was composed of keyboardist/lead vocalist Bryan Duncan, guitarist/vocalist Randy Thomas and brothers Kevin (bass guitar) and Rick (drums/vocals) Thomson.
With their 1977 self-titled release on Maranatha! Records, SCB hit the Jesus Music scene with a funky, jazzy, R&B and 70's rock sound. This set them apart from many of the bands in the nascent Contemporary Christian music industry who were primarily performing folk-rock and soft rock. Few bands had the musicianship displayed by this quartet. However, Maranatha! decided to quit releasing rock and roll albums and focus on children's releases, gospel and worship music. The band did not fit the new direction, so Light Records welcomed them for their sophomore release Breakin' The Ice.
The band went their separate ways in 1984 having released six albums while building a large fan base. Bryan Duncan released a number of solo projects over the next fifteen years. Randy Thomas went on to found the band Allies and co-wrote radio hit Butterfly Kisses with former Allies band member Bob Carlisle.
