RAW ENERGY wrapped in a benefit concert for Bridges and Milford Prevention Council
Passing Strange was born from the shadowy folds of human emotion, a passion for music, love, freedom, and truth. The musical stylings of this duo are laced in jazz, bedazzled in blues, and brewed in a vat of vintage rock.
Hailing from Southern Connecticut, Kate and Anthony formed Passing Strange in April 2017, after Kate performed solo during an open mic. As Anthony looked on, he thought about how drums would bring depth to the talented songwriter’s creations. He suggested they play together at the same open mic the following week, to determine whether they were musically compatible, and the rest is history.
Influenced by Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor as well as The Deftones, Marilyn Manson and The Doors, Kate is a self-taught pianist and vocalist, and Anthony has been playing drums for 30 years. In the summer of 2017, Passing Strange recorded their debut album The Water And The Woods at Dobas Music Studios in Hamden, Connecticut. Their second album, Come Whatever Storms, is due out in 2018.
