Lisa Carrington - lead vocals, guitar, harp
I was born and raised in Delaware/Columbus, Ohio. I graduated from Northland High School, class of 1990. Shortly after finishing high school I met the love of my life, Mike Carrington, who I married in 1994 - we have a beautiful daughter named Bree. My musical influences include a wide variety of genres including classic rock, country and pop; but my biggest influence of all would have to be listening to "Casey's Top 40", the countdown that played every weekend on the radio. From about 1978 forward that was a highlight of my weekends growing up. I would record from the radio to a cassette tape and then play it back a little bit at a time so I could hear and write down all of the lyrics and memorize it....always prepared to sing along, no matter what the song!
Kurt Crawford - keyboards and vocals
Kurt Crawford was born in Columbus, OH on July 15, 1986. After learning time travel, how to be awesome and Kung Fu, he discovered his love of keys and singing at the age of 10. After studying music performance briefly at both Belmont University (Nashville, TN) and Capital University (Columbus, OH), Kurt decided to start a family with his lovely wife Ashley, and graduated with a business degree to obtain employment for the State of Ohio. Currently, Kurt is teaching every member of Waterloo 5 Kung Fu, so don't throw anything at us when we perform, or we will judo chop you :)
Phil Gariety - guitar I am currently playing with Waterloo5. I am a lifetime music student - classic rock roots with pop, country, bluegrass, classical and jazz influences. I am really into playing jazz rock fusion and original music. I studied one year at GIT. My wife is Pam, my daughter is Annie.

Ian McCormack - bass When I started to get interested in being serious about playing music there were many influential records (yes, I call them records because that's what they were at that time) that helped shape my musical direction. The first record that I saved my pennies for was Deep Purple, Machine Head. The second record that I remember listening to over and over and over again was Queen, A Night At The Opera. Not a bad way to get started. At times, I have performed on other instruments but I always view bass as my main instrument. There have been many major influences such as Jaco, Victor and Stanley, as well as Chris Squire, John Entwistle, John Paul Jones and of course Sir Paul McCartney, that have helped shape my love of music and the bass in particular. Thanks to the members of Waterloo5 for asking me to be part of their journey. Lisa, Phil, Kurt and Ty have all inspired me to want to bring my best to each and every performance, for them and for you the audience. I can't wait to see all of you at one of our shows. Peace.
Ty Thomas - drums, percussion
Ty Thomas, born on earth, mostly human, spends every moment trying to grow hair to be more like Kurt.
