The Memphis Strange
The Memphis Strange is a roots-rock band from Austin Texas. Released in 2012, their debut album “Birth of the Strange” represented the dirty rock and country sound the guys had been creating in clubs and road houses across their hometown for years.
The Austin Chronicle wrote, “Modern country-rock bands brim with talented musicians pursuing a barroom style devoid of creativity. The Memphis Strange makes me eat my words. Birth of the Strange has range, taste, and skill. The constant guitar duel between Johnny Dango and Doug Strahan isn’t so much about interplay as it is about sonic variety and caliber. With pianist Todd Thompson, they sing blues and ballads with fantastic harmonies…”
The sound is original yet familiar – rooted in classic Americana but influenced by the histories of the three singer-songwriters. Thick harmonies and dueling guitars and keyboards create a rich tension that has been exciting southern audiences for years.
