The Well Known Strangers

The Well Known Strangers second song from their forthcoming full length album salutes those people who shine brighter than the sun, inspiring and spreading their undeniable energy to everyone around them. Now more than ever the world needs those who naturally lift us up.

“Sun State” is an unstoppable force hurling through the cosmos — bluesy, groovy and upbeat with just a pinch of attitude.

Drinks at the neighborhood pub in Shasta led to a close encounter with the State of Jefferson, a freight train, and the secret alien colony in the mountain. The first single off the Well Known Strangers’ forthcoming full-length collection celebrates the bohemian splendor and brash eclecticism of their home state of California and all of the terrestrial life forms therein.

Spring has sprung in Marin and The Well Known Strangers are celebrating with a spate of local shows, including three gigs in their favorite west Marin haunts in as many weeks - Iron Springs Brewery in downtown Fairfax on Wednesday, March 18, then on to Rancho Nicasio in West Marin on Friday, March 27 and finally, the Papermill Creek Saloon in Lagunitas on Saturday, April 11.
