The band was formed in Las Vegas by childhood friends Michael Sherwood (keys, backing vocals) and Jimmy Haun (guitar) with Gary Starnes (drums) and Mike Hulsey (keys). They later moved to Los Angeles.
Guy Allison joined on keys, as did Michael's younger brother Billy Sherwood at the age of 16 in 1981.
After many years of trying to get things together, they recorded their debut and sole album Nomadic Sands, released in 1985 on A&M Records, performed by the Sherwoods, Haun, Allison and Starnes. The album was co-produced by Steve Porcaro and David Paich (both of Toto). Although the album failed to chart in the U.S., the first single "Lonely Man" was featured in the movie Prince of Bel Air, starring Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley.
Lodgic opened some dates for Supertramp, but the band came to an end, evolving into World Trade with B. Sherwood and Allison.
While the band's output was limited, its legacy was in future collaborations. As well as World Trade, both Sherwoods and Haun later worked with Yes, all three appearing on Union. B. Sherwood and Haun later worked together in The Key, The Chris Squire Experiment and Circa.
