It’s a little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest. It’s blue-collar rock and roll and it’s something that Denver’s Strange Americans are crafting with both brawn and finesse.
In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straightforward, no-frills rock and roll with a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.
Strange Americans has two full-length records, A Royal Battle (2012), and That Kind of Luster(2014), along with the 7” Vinyl Places (2015). They have shared the stage with Chris Stapleton, Old 97’s, Zakk Wylde, Guided By Voices, Soul Rebels, Dead Confederate, Cory Branan, Red Wanting Blue, The Mother Hips, Nick Urata (of Devotchka) and many more. The band has also recorded sessions with Audiotree, Daytrotter and Jam in the Van.
