They met in Seattle Washington in the early 80’s when a band Sylvie was in (The Jetzenz) was looking for a lead guitarist. The two immediately started writing songs together and soon learned they shared a similar vision which pulled them away from The Jetzenz to start their own band DC Lacroix in 1983.
In 1984 they recorded a 4 song demo shifting their musical style into the hard rock/metal realm with ten Bassist Dave Sale and Rick Reed.
Once they started circulating the demo they were approached by Renaissance Records to appear on the Lady Killers album, soon followed Pacific Northwest Metal Meltdown Vol I. Early 1985 they were approached by Black Dragon records in Paris, France who somehow got their hands on their 5 song Demo some of which would later be included on Crack of Doom. Crack of Doom was released in 1986 mostly Europe distribution. DCL started playing any and every club on the Sunset Strip and San Fernando Valley to get USA attention. By mid 1987, DCL had signed a one album deal with Enigma Records on one of their subsidiary labels, Medusa.The album was Living By The Sword, released at the beginning of 1988. Mid 1989 DCL was contacted by Capital Records to do a private showcase. Capital passed the band continued to shop for a deal and showcase then broke up for the final time early 1990. Through the efforts of Barry Fasman two songs from New DCL lineup Bad Luck and Do you Wanna Rock were used in the 1991 movie Rich Girl.
