UPCOMING (Thur. June 30): Strangers You Know at the Pike Room inside the Crofoot in Pontiac


Strangers You Know is a sonic collective out of Southern California, brought together by a chance meeting back stage on production road at Coachella in 2013 and kept together by similar musical interests. Despite this, it's the differences in musical backgrounds of each individual that create the unique and diverse sounds of the band. From folk to electronic, the band draws inspiration from many different sources, with each member bringing their own sound to the group. Adam pulls from more analog forms of music, from artists such as The Beatles, Beck, and more modern songwriters such as Kacey Musgraves and the Avett Brothers. Grady, on the other hand draws from modern music trends such as Deep House and R&B.

The band is comprised of Grady Lee (Vocals, Guitar, Bass) and
 Adam Haagen (Piano, Guitar, Vocals, Banjo, Bass, Drums, Mandolin, Harmonica, Ukulele).

The band released its first EP (Something to Someone) early summer of 2014 and has had a busy summer tour schedule on  the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, First City Festival, and the Sunset Strip Music Festival.

In May 2015 they released their first full Album What Happened. The entirety of the album can, in essence, describe the entirety of a single night out, encompassing all the relationships one may form and the people one may interact with. It starts with the band getting ready to “Have a party” and ends with a track called “Hibernate” that leads into the dreamlike cover of Marty Robbins “160 Acres." 

Hot off performances at SXSW, Coachella, Hangout and Bottlerock, and Firefly, the band will stay on the road nationally this summer with many dates ahead.

Strangers You Know are on tour supporting their new EP Loosen up the Leash
which can be given a listen HERE.
