Strangely Alright is #Flyah




Take Weezer and Super Furry Animals sprinkled with some Bowie, and then add confessional lyrics ala John Lennon and you have Strangely Alright, 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. Time can have a tricky way of beating people down and telling them to forget who they wanted to be and who they are. The fact that some members of the strangely clan are in recovery brings to mind the reality that people can find what was once lost.
Their song, “Crying Shame” was nominated for the 2013 NWME Song of the Year in the alt/classic rock category and recently SA's music was included on the hit Seattle sketch comedy show "The 206"..
Critical acclaim for their recent singles along with shows at the prestigious Art On The Ave and The Western Washington State Fair and a appearance on Click 98.9 FM's HOMEGROWN have been some of the band's recent highlights. .
Strangely Alright's 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 recently SA's music was included on the hit Seattle sketch comedy show "The 206". They have been featured artist on a number of northwest shows including NWCZ’s ‘The Convergence Zone”, ‘The Aquarium” and “The Internal Narcissist”.
SA Singer Songwriter Regan Lane has had placement and airplay of his heartfelt pop and rock songs on numerous TV shows throughout the US, including A&E's Biography,NBC Sports,VH1's Top Twenty Countdown and Best Week Ever, Anthony Bourdains' No Reservations and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew along with many other cable and network shows.
His jubilant pop song 'U Won't Believe' was heard on NBC's "Race across America" and was also the theme song for "Puget Sounds TV", a Northwest TV show featuring local and national indie artists. "The Ocean Makes Her Cry'"was recently played on The Discovery Channels' "Strictly Sex With Dr. Drew: Am I Normal?" and his pop gem 'Junkie' was heard on a recent Johnny Knoxville's MTV special.
So Regan's 80’s pop star experience, Ken Schaff''s driving hard rock influences, Jason Bair's rocking military precision on drums, 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, sound deep seated with emotion. Lane’s charismatic presence and ability to get asses out of their seats and the underlying lyrical messages of hope, empathy, and love make each new catchy SA song an audience favorite!

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
