"Glide Magazine"

“I recently found myself north of the Bernalillo County line when the opportunity arose to attend a sold-out Dr. Dog show at the Santa Fe Brewery Pub and Grill… it would be a sin not to mention the surprise found on the way out the door. The Strange, the band called in as a provisional measure, unfortunately did not get a chance to play but did manage to whip up an impressive one-stop shop of merchandise as the show was concluding. We couldn't pass up the dynamic young man at the helm of t-shirt and CD sales priced extremely reasonably at $5.00. The purchases were quickly put to use as we donned our newly acquired apparel while grooving to the tunes for our drive back to Albuquerque. This CD was a perfect way to end a perfect night of good music from start to finish!”

""Young Outlaws""

“These young outlaws came into Frogville with a similar
vision to some of the earlier Frogville mainstays like
Nathan, Boris and Joe... they wanted a very earthy, true,
mostly live vibe... they achieved it... the band sounds young cus they are!!!... and they are rock n rollers to the core, reminiscent of late 60s, early 70s rock like The Band, Purple & Zeppelin... what you hear is what you get.... nothing fancy, just good songs & authentic vibe.... the more I hear this record, the more I realize it is in my "tops" list of all times at Frogville.”

""Best New Band 2010""

I think because were young, people don’t trust us to be any good,” Justin Lindsey, singer for The Strange, tells SFR. Well, winning Best New Band should be a pretty good indication that the music-going public does trust The Strange. The band has evolved steadily over the nearly two years it has been together, from bar blues band to more of an indie-rock project laced with classic rock sensibilities. Recently upgraded to a six piece with the addition of Daniel Murphy, band members Lynsay Ayala, Andrew Davey, Braden Anderson, Mitchell Lacassagne and Justin Lindsey continue to play shows wherever they can while attempting to get two albums’ worth of original songs recorded at Frogville Records. “Winning this honor just makes us want to work even harder,” vocalist Ayala says. With tours coming up and whispers of marketing in Japan, The Strange has all the makings of another Santa Fe success story.
-Alex De Vore, Santa Fe Reporter-Best of Santa Fe 2010-Best New Band - Santa Fe Reporter


“The Strange is currently one of Santa Fe’s most talked about rock/boogie-blues outfits for a reason. Blending catchy guitar hooks and folksy interludes with harmony-vocal choruses a la ‘70’s classic rock. (Think Crosby, Stills, and Nash but with rugged The Kills/Joan Jett style feminine energy) this band bridges the gap between new and seasoned fans of good ol’shake-your-ass rock ‘n’ roll.

"'What makes us love music""

"Santa Fe is buzzing about the fresh-faced rock ’n’ roll
band, which consists of Lynsay Ayala, Justin Lindsey,
Braden Anderson, Andrew Davey, and Mitchell
Lacassagne. The group is the result of the disbanding
of The Revolutionary No Water Blues Band, and brings
to the table precisely what makes us love music: original
songs, soulful lyrics, slick guitars and a sound that gives
the impression the band had a damn good time making it"

Bringing their diverse influences and unified love of classic rock together, "young outlaws" 'St. Range', have become one of Santa Fe, New Mexico’s most beloved new rock bands.  Frequently described by their fans as "something you'd hear in a Tarantino movie", their sound is a fusion of traditional rock styles with more progressive styles including funk, reggae, folk, rock-a-billy, pop, and dance. Their live performances are "authentic, professional, and exciting", and since their inception, 'St. Range' has captivated a local following as well as audiences across the Southwest.

What inspiration isn't taken from the "everyday ups and downs we all share as humans" is taken from their desert surroundings; St. Range calls it's sound "Desert Rock", and hopes to champion the genre.

With 3 studio albums, numerous unreleased or unrecorded songs, and a new album on the way, St. Range is eager to bring it's unique take on rock to the ears of the international community.
