In the post grunge era, a group of musicians emerged from the head banging, d-chord swinging musical landscape, to form a band that was literally a breath of fresh air; becoming a mainstay on the Canadian music scene, TPK dominated the radio waves with such chart-topping singles as "Charms" "Hurts to Love you" and "If I Ever Lose this Heaven" and criss-crossed the counrty captivating sold-out audiences. With their remarkable high energy live performances and multi-dimension musicianship, they earned the moniker of 'Canada's Favourite Live Band.' They toured from Brazil to Japan, including an impressive U.S. tour with The Fugees and Maxwell, winning every fan, one at a time. This incredible assemblage of talent spawned successful and diverse individual artist careers, with credit and releases from some of the biggest Canadian and International bands of today.

Cue forward serveral years, three immensely successful albums, multiple Top 10 radio hits, Industry Award nominations and sold-out concert venues across the country, and the band was ready to delve into other musical passions.

Since their last release, the band has drawn upon each other's natural abilities by collaborating on their personal projects. Gerald Eaton released a solo project as Jarvis Church and with Brian West, formed the production team Track and Field. Together they produced Grammy Award winner Nelly Furtado's albums. James McCollum displayed his masterful guitar riffs on his solo debut as James Bryan and with Jay Levine, formed the band Prozzak and Lefthook Productions (Fefe Dobson). Jon Levine has also pursued a solo career with his signature lyrical and piano stylings and Denton Whited has continued to tour with several artists. Collectively, The Philosopher Kings have penned over 100 songs for superstar artists such as: Tina Turner, Richy Martin, Divine Brown, and Amanda Scott.
