Montreal’s Maurice Raymond began his music career fronting the covers band Jade, playing songs by the Stones, Bowie, Dylan, Springsteen, and J Geils. In late ’78, he joined Paul Martin's band Consillium in Kingston, ON, along with guitarist James ‘Doc’ Green, Martin Van Dijk on bass, drummer Rico Berthiaume, and Andre Lasalie on keyboards. Managed by Gord Nichol, they toured Ontario and gained popularity in Quebec. Signing with RCA Records, they released their debut album "UNVEILED" in ’81, featuring singles like “What You Talkin’ About” and a cover of CCR’s “Fortunate Son.” They later reformed as The Brides, known for their live performances across North America, blending original songs with Stones covers and occasional lineup changes.
