PC Quest

PC Quest were a pop music group from Shawnee, Oklahoma that consisted of brothers Chad & Stephen Petree, Drew Nichols and Kim Whipkey.

They were managed by George Tobin (who discovered & managed teen pop sensation Tiffany) and songwriter/producer Tim James.
In 1991, PC Quest released their self-titled debut album on Headliner Records. It's unknown how or if the album made the charts.

The first single "Can I Call You My Girl" peaked at #58 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Their second single "After the Summer is Gone" became their highest chart appearance to date, peaking at #41 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #66 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 5 weeks.
In 1992, the group released their sophomore album, "Directions" which flopped. Most of the songs from the album were later re-recorded by Tiffany for her 1993 album, "Dreams Never Die." After that, it seemed as if the group faded into obscurity.

These days, Chad Petree is the guitarist and co-lead singer for new wave/indie rock band Shiny Toy Guns.

Kim Whipkey is a wife & mother and still sings occasionally. It's unknown what Steve Petree and Drew Nichols are up to today.
