Here is an interesting article about Dr. Onionskin (aka Alfa One Seven).
Here is a quote:
Shane Ries, he had a brief career in the 80s in mod and power pop bands (a fact I only recently discovered), but first came into CCM prominence with the oddly effective project Hymn Jim’s Gospel Gems (1995), which fused traditional hymns with dance music. He re-branded a year later as Dr. Onionskin
Thanks :). God Bless :).
