Based out of the South Bay of San Diego, neighboring the highest crossed border in the world, the members of Stranger draw inspiration from their diverse surroundings. It is multicultural and musical diversity that lends Stranger a unique blend of soulful reggae roots, rock and jazz infused with conscious lyrics. The ideas and messages within Stranger's music take root in the deepest part of the human spirit.
Performing, composing and working together since 2000, Stranger remains a solid example of not only passion, but also endurance and has established themselves as a must see act. "Plain and simple: Stranger is one of San Diego's best reggae bands." - Troy Johnson The San Diego CityBeat
Besides the huge following in the Southwest, Stranger has been spreading their infectious vibes around the nation; recently returning from their second Hawaii tour in four months.
Stranger’s most recent album “Shelter From the Storm” was released December 16, 2006. “Nothing short of wonderful. This album takes the listener on a musical journey and offers something for everybody. This is a must buy.”-CD Baby.com
The band is currently recording a new album to be followed up by a stream of live performances around the country and abroad.
