Well-Known Strangers is South-East Wisconsin’s cello infused alternative pop/rock band that has taken the Milwaukee/Chicago scene by surprise and has garnered significant praise for their unique sound and amazing live performances. Centered on a powerful and emotive female vocals and stately cello, and reinforced by strong songwriting and incredible musicality, Well-Known Strangers has a unique sound that is reminiscent of familiar pop-rock of the ‘90s while being expressively groundbreaking and melodically rich. From their lyrical hooks to melodic counterpoint between guitars and cello, Well-
Known Strangers is able to craft an experience that draws the listener into their songcraft.
Well-Known Strangers is Joe Adamek (acoustic guitar), Betsy Ade (vocals), Sacia Jerome (cello and backing vocals), Theodore Koth (lead guitar and backing vocals), Roger Gower, Jr. (drums/percussion), and John Kulas (bass guitar).
