Thirty years ago Geffen Records released Quarterflash's self-titled first album which garnered 3 top forty hits (Harden My Heart, Find Another Fool, and Right Kind of Love). Harden My Heart raced up the charts and hit #1 on Billboard's rock chart and #3 on their pop chart. By the summer of '82 Quarterflash became the first Oregon band to garner platinum albums in both the US and Canada.
Led by the singing and sax playing of Rindy Ross and her songwriting guitarist husband, Marv Ross, Quarterflash won the 1982 Best New Band award from the North American Radio Rock Association and toured extensively with Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, Sammy Hagar, Jefferson Starship, Night Ranger, Loverboy, and Rick Springfield. Quarterflash was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame in 2009 and is currently working on their 7th album.
