ROCK - Alternative
Well-Known Strangers has been entertaining Midwest audiences with a cello infused, alternative pop/rock, with a tinge-of-country-band sound. Members Joe Adamek (acoustic guitar), Betsy Ade (lead vocals, guitar), Sacia Jerome (cello, background vocals), Theodore Koth (lead guitar, background vocals) Roger Gower (drums/percussion) and John Kulas (bass guitar) have been busy preparing for the Summer 2017 tour of their debut album, Aligned. W·KS is diligently working with Fight to End Exploitation, a non-profit collaborative network working to end human trafficking, and the I-94 Corridor on a concert in June to raise critical awareness and help end human trafficing. With the release of “Voices” W·KS is intensely committed to this cause.
Together, the band members have an amazing mix of musical knowledge and education that provides a unique sound that is reminiscent of familiar of music from the ‘90s while being expressively groundbreaking and melodically rich. While Ade and Adamek do most of the songwriting, it’s the band’s creative spark and sonic diversity that are the driving force behind their sound.
