The Unseen Strangers
The Unseen Strangers have ambitiously cultivated a musical identity shaped by good old-fashioned bluegrass, the limitless barrage of contemporary musical influences, and a relentlessly curious sense of humour. The Strangers draw from the beeps and buzzes of the modern world to create an imaginative, energetic brand of acoustic music that is unmistakably their own. Based out of Toronto, ON, the band has toured Canada, performed showcases at NXNE and OCFF to name a few, and is a favorite at festivals featuring genres spanning Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Rock, and Electronic.
The group just released their second full length record, Follow the Sound produced by Andrew Collins. The album includes 11 original songs featuring, “Facebook Waltz”, which won the humorous category for the 2012 OCFF Songs from the Heart songwriting competition and “Rambler’s Plea”, which won the 2012 International Acoustic Music Award for Bluegrass/Country Song of the Year.
