Sarah Raymer

My fair ladies...
With the voices of angels and the the faces to match, the instruments of long loved sounds pieced together to form waves that strike through to my heart. I get that tingling sensation of hair raising on my arms and neck when I try to sing along because it just runs through me- in my ears and to that special part of my brain that so few sounds can strike. Ladies, you are so lovely in so many ways.

Always More To Hear

Just the right amount of twang and kick ass women
The music of The Hello Strangers takes me into another decade, maybe into a black and white movie set in the Appalachians or Hill Country of Texas, where the women are tough and passionate. It's spooky, got some gorgeous harmonies and just the right amount of twang.


The musical influence of folks like Neko Case, Lucinda Williams, Johnny Cash, Conor Oberst and The Weary Boys is evident. But so is the rich musical traditions of Austin, Texas. It's the voices and vocal harmonies of Brechyn and Larissa that really make this band for me. I can't tell them apart and it sort of freaks me out!
With songs titled "Pregnant in Jail," (supposedly based on a true story, that's something I have to remember to ask about) "Oh He'll Drown," and "Poor Dear," I wonder where the Chace sisters get their inspiration. I mean REALLY get their inspiration. It seems that the local lore of Pennsylvania, Texas and good ol' country music steeped into their creative consciousness.
