Strangely Alright is a 5 piece Power Pop Band from the Seattle, WA area that has, as Rockford Rowley from The Weekly Volcano says, “an undeniable emotional appeal. Ringing, triumphant chords and lyrics that allude to conquered tribulations immediately make the music relatable to everyone. Regan Lane's 80’s pop star experience, Ken Schaff''s driving hard rock influences, Preston Darvill's late 90’s heavy hitting grunge love affair, Ray Hayden's keyboard crush on all things prog rock and Sean Van Dommelen's crunchy white boy blues, all collide together creating their unique raw, energetic, power pop sound deep seated with emotion.
Lane’s charismatic presence and ability to get asses out of their seats and the underlying lyrical message of hope, empathy and love have created great excitement surrounding the band’s upcoming ( March 2015) single and video for their song COME ON, a powerful and rocking call to action that’s a mixture of The Replacements, David Bowie and Cheap Trick!
SA recently had their music added to the 2014 hit Seattle comedy show The 206 and their last CD ‘The Time Machine Is Broken’ received rave reviews and radio airplay from around the world, including Great Britain, Australia and Sweden!
A track from the album, “Crying Shame”, was nominated for the NWME song of the year in the alt/classic rock category And the boys have been featured artist on a number of northwest shows including NWCZ’s ‘The Convergence Zone”, ‘The Aquarium” and “The Internal Narcissist”.
