The Well Known Strangers are a sextet featuring a number of well known names in the local music community, including Austin de Lone (Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, The Fabulous Thunderbirds) on keys; Amber Morris (special guest) on vocals; Mick Hellman (The Go To Hell Man Band) on drums and vocals; Joshua Zucker (The Jones Gang, Rowan Brothers, Poor Man’s Whiskey) on bass; David Noble (Poor Man’s Whiskey) and Rob Anderson on guitars.
The band says the new album TMI is inspired by the information age giving way to the too-much-information age. From life’s journey to a simple sunset; from a random bar room encounter to the love of a lifetime; from a long day at work to the tribulations of a generation. It all combines and intertwines, lurching backwards and then inching forward, painting a picture of who we are individually and collectively.
