Music Millennium

With a brand new CD in hand, The Strange Tones have emerged from their undisclosed secure location. And this time, they're inviting you into their home. The band's new CD, At Home With The Strange Tones offers a rare glimpse into the lives of these Portland, Oregon-based sonic crime fighters. The Strange Tones have blended a unique concoction of original blues, rockabilly, surf, and vintage R&B, and finished it off with a private eye twist. They've shaken and stirred these elements into their own original sound and style known as Crime-A-Billy. The band's previous CDs have earned much acclaim throughout the Northwest and beyond. We're On Our Way earned the coveted Muddy Award for 'Northwest Recording of the Year' by the Cascade Blues Association, while both We're On Our Way and Crime-A-Billy made the Top 20 Chart in Spain for FM Blues Radio and on Real Blues Magazine's Top 100 Charts. The Strange Tones step up to the plate with their new release. Their experience and continued development as a dynamic band with notorious live shows and a distinctly Northwest flavor are well captured in At Home With The Strange Tones. Special guests include keyboard legend DK Stewart and harmonica ace Jim Wallace. 'That's the Crime-A-Billy album I've been looking for.... I love that thing start to finish!' - KINK 101.9 FM, Steve Pringle 'The Strange Tones have their own unique flavor in music. Perhaps you can call it Blues Noir ... this is going to be a favorite recording by the band for many years to come.' - Cascade Blues Association President Greg Johnson 'This album truly captures the unique vibe of Portland and is an instant soundtrack to life and liberty here in the River City. Long live Crime-A-Billy. - Tom Addis, 'Blues Palace' DJ, KMHD 89.1.
