Band history

Painter experienced a number of personnel changes. Their big hit 'West Coast Woman', from the album Painter, was released in 1973. Other bands that came out of Painter include 'Hammersmith', '451' and 'Prototype'.

Amongst their various alumni are a number of recording engineers. QSound was developed by Dan Lowecite web | title=The Canadian Pop Encyclopedia at | url= ] after experimenting in a recording session that involved multiple microphones set up around a studio. The technology was used on recordings in the 80s by Pink Floyd, Sting, Madonna and other noted artists and is currently being used in cellphones.
