All four members got to know each other through newspaper advertisements and received offers from various record companies after just a few appearances. In 1993 Rose Chronicles debuted with the EP "Dead and Gone to Heaven" and made it to # 1 on the college radio charts with the track Awaiting Eternity included on it. The first album "Shiver" followed in 1994 and one year later won the CARAS Juno Award for the best alternative album of 1995.
During the recording of the follow-up work "Happily Ever After" Judd Cochrane and Steve van der Woerd left the band due to internal differences and the discrepancies between them and the record company Nettwerk Productions . In order to be able to finish the album work, Kristy Thirsk and Richard Maranda were looking for two new comrades and found them in Trevor Grant (drums) and Howard Redekop (bass) at short notice.
When “Happily Ever After” was released in 1996 after a few delays, Kristy and Richard had already broken up the band, a fact that the label Nettwerk Productions hid until the day of the release.
