Ground breaking band in the genre of alternative rock. The Prayer Chain formed in February 1990 when Campuzano & Prickett's band Laughing Boy broke up at the same time as Taber's band Tapestry broke up. Campuzano knew Taber through a Bible study group. Taber both sang and played drums originally, though drum machines were also used. The band auditioned Everett to play drums later that year at a Prayer Chain show in California.
Their first album, The Neverland Sessions, was released independently, was recorded with Steve Hindalong at Neverland Studios. After signing to Reunion Records they put out the Whirlpool EP and started touring, while focusing on their first LP, Shawl, released in 1993.
