Description#1: The Diviners was founded as a duo in 1986 by McKay and Robertson who were impressed with a film adaptation of Margaret Laurence's book 'The Diviners'. They wrote songs inspired by the film/book and named themselves as such.

In 1991 an independent album was released called 'Face Of The Earth' produced by Michael Phillip-Wojewoda (BNL, Vital Sines) which spawned the single "Listen".

By 1992 the duo had added Beardsell, Marie and Greenway to complete the band and released another single "Walk Along The River".
