With rich harmonies and colorful songwriting, Kind Hearted Strangers bring back a taste of American roots into the world of rock n' roll they fell in love with.
Based in Boulder, CO - the Strangers feature songwriter/vocalist Marc Townes, percussionist/vocalist Brian Ireland of Something Corporate, bassist Marshall Carlson of Augustus, and guitarist Kevin Hinder of the funk/rock outfit Envy Alo, who’s skillful and dynamic embellishments add another unique layer to the band’s raw authentic sound.
"...the fiery, eclectic Kind Hearted Strangers stand high above their counterparts, evoking a loose jam-band charm with vibrant, pop-sensible folk that takes influence from the classics without spending too much time dwelling in the past.
With Townes' vibrant, engaging songwriting, Hinder's virtuosic and seemingly limitless range on guitar, and Ireland's drumming that keeps the song's contained while also stretching them to their limits, Kind Hearted Strangers' musical dexterity far exceeds their short time as a band. With a sound already so fully-formed and grounded, guessing where they're going next is an adventure unto itself." - Behind the Scene Press, 2017
