New music from Seattle’s The Local Strangers
Aubrey Zoli and Matt Hart formed the neo-folk duo The Local Strangers in 2010 and quickly realized that they shared a common musical vision. Within one month, The Local Strangers played a debut show and entered the studio to record their first EP, Devils and Ghosts. Emboldened by Seattle’s supportive music community and a sold-out EP release show, they hit the road to reach a national audience at venues such as The Hotel Cafe (LA), The Casbah (San Diego), and The Elbo Room (Chicago). Demand for a full length album grew, and a successful Kickstarter campaign with over 200 backers helped make it a reality, the album Left For Better is to be released nationally on November 5th, 2012.
The Local Strangers’ honest and soulful songs evoke a wide spectrum of emotions spanning from irrepressible joy to wistful introspection. Their first full length album was produced with Kevin Matley (The Head and the Heart, Bryan John Appleby), showcases that dynamic range.
