Guitarist and keyboardist Norman Orenstein and vocalist Molly Johnson met in 1979 in Toronto. They shortly joined forces to create Alta Moda. The funk-style music group was a duo for approximately 3 years, until drummer Steven Gelineau was asked into the group. Bassist Etric Lyons was added a season afterwards. Each member brought a lot of experience towards the combine. The music group performed through elements of Canada, getting mostly reviews that are positive and drawing interest from many record brands. Some detailed the group as R&B, though Alta Moda recommended being indexed even more as funk rock and roll. Fans had to hold back quite a while to test an album through the music group. Finally, in 1987, after getting a cope with CBS Information, Alta Moda’s self-titled debut noticed the light of time. The recording was nominated for any Juno award — that they refused. From then on, there was a unitary, “Julian,” released another year and converted to a video, but that was that. Prior to the end from the ’80s, the users of Alta Moda made a decision to split. Most of them but one, Gelineau, became a member of backup in 1990, this time around calling their music group the Infidels.
