Ranking alongside Petra, White Heart and Resurrection Band as one of the pioneering groups of the genre, DeGarmo & Key consists of the duo of Eddie DeGarmo (keyboards) and Dana Key (lead vocals and guitars). The two got their start in a mainstream pop group named Globe, but after becoming Christians in the mid-seventies, they formed what was first was The DeGarmo & Key Band but later shorted to just DeGarmo & Key.
Mission of Mercy (1987) is quintessential `80's synth/rock/pop. No band, Christian or secular, did it any better. Combined with incredibly talented support musicians Tommy Cathey (bass) and Greg Morrow (drums), with Steven V. Taylor (guitars) joining for live concerts, DeGarmo and Key set the bar high, very high, for the rest of the music world to try to reach. I absolutely love this opening track, Ready or Not.
