Kimberly Rogers - Vocals, Guitar
Kim was born and raised in Peterborough, Ontario. She got her first acoustic guitar at age 11 as a result of being influenced by folk and rock artists of the 70’s. By 15 she was singing and playing electric guitar in school rock bands. Among her earliest influences were Heart, Peter Frampton, Fleetwood Mac, the Pretenders, Styx, Led Zeppelin, Boston, and just about anything that was heard on AM radio in the 70’s.
In the 1980’s while attending college in Lindsay, Ontario she was the lead guitarist in an alternative band that recorded an EP of original songs. Later she played bass in a heavy metal cover lineup based out of Campbellford, Ont.
In the early 90’s Kim wrote and produced her first full album “Dancing with Fire” in North Bay Ontario, working with an all-star collection of backup musicians.
Soon after that she moved to the Yukon and pursued an acoustic-oriented singer/songwriter career as well as continuing to play in various duos and bands.
Her self-produced folk/rock album “Canyon City” highlights the fruit of those Yukon collaborations and songwriting years. In the early 2000’s Kim worked with Toronto guitarist/producer Rick Santers to write and record a rock EP “I’m the Girl” which has enjoyed favourable reviews and radio play. Kim then slowed down a bit for some family-focused years, but the Whitehorse powerhouse rock band “Shagadelica” marks Kim’s return to full-on gigging with a 5 piece lineup of stellar musicians. She’s happy to be back to the business of rockin’ the house down again on vocals, guitar, and percussion.
Pam Phillips - Vocals, Bass
Pam’s early life was filled with the music of the early 60’s. She was also influenced by her Dad, who played jazz piano, and at the age of 14, got her first guitar. Pam taught herself to play and sing folk songs, and when the British invasion began, she got an electric guitar and her passion turned to the songs of the Beatles, Stones, Cream, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix to name just a few.
When Pam was 19, she dropped out of college where she was studying music theory - and joined her first rock band, “Shady Lady”. They were one of the first all-female bands to emerge from the Pacific Northwest in the early 70’s. They toured across Canada and the US before she joined another all-female band based out of Las Vegas - a show band where she continued to tour extensively. Pam spent over a decade touring with other various Top-40, Funk and Rock bands, where she learned the rules of “life on the road”.
In the early 80’s, Pam joined the all-female band, the Cover Girls, and their travels brought her to new places including Germany and the Great White North. While touring in the Yukon, she met her future husband, the talented Bernie Phillips. After she settled in Whitehorse she got established as the bass player and guitar player with different house bands at the Capitol Hotel, including the Flaming Groovies, the Metre Maids and Agents of Chaos.
In 1986, the classic Yukon band The Rinkbinders were formed. They wrote many excellent songs and performed many shows, but two incredible highlights of their career was being the arts ambassadors for the Yukon at Expo 86 in Vancouver and playing at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary. With too many bands, festivals and tours to mention, Pam has been a celebrated and sought after musician for many years and we are fortunate to have her in Shagadelica.
