The origins of One Horse Blue can be traced to Alberta act Pickins featuring Michael Shellard, Winston Quelch, Bob Burghardt, Fred Larose, Karen Sunderland and Doug Johnston.
Meanwhile, in Drayton Valley, Alberta, in 1975, Ian Oscar hooked up with high school friends David Brisebois (bass) and his brother Dennis (guitar), Derrick Henningsmoan (drums) and Drayton Carl (guitar) as Stonehenge. They pursued a heavy rock sound influenced by the likes of Deep Purple, Steppenwolf and Iron Butterfly. By 1977 the band had transformed so many times with so many different incarnations that Oscar decided to look for greener pastures.
As it happened, Sunderland had quit Pickens and Oscar replaced her. The band recorded and released a single at Sundown Recording Studio. Doug Johnston and Fred Larose left the band shortly after the first single was produced and Ron Vaugeois and Randy Lloyd replaced them on drums and bass. The new act featured Shelland, Quelch, Burghardt, Lloyd and Vaugeois and started performing under the handle One Horse Blue -- named after a horse owned by Oscar's sister and based on the Paul Cotton song by Poco.
Under the production tutelage of Wes Daskus the band recorded their self-titled debut album in 1978 for the Vera Cruz label which spawned the Canadian charting hit "Cry Out For The Sun". During this period they were also enlisted as the backing band for Dakus's other production project Shannon Two Feathers on the album 'Dreams That Feed A Gypsy'.
