A Strangely Alright New Single – Paint Outside The Lines! Listen HERE
Seattle, WA- “I don’t want to get stuck thinking that there’s only one way” says Strangely Alright singer songwriter Regan Lane… If there’s one thing I’ve learned lately, it’s that I get to be who I want to be based on today. And sometimes that means I have to tilt my perception just enough to see and do things differently than I used to. Sometimes the old ideas just don’t work. It’s always tends to feel more comfortable to keep things the same. But I’ve found if I’m no trying new things and making the effort to move forward I’m probably sliding back….”
And so from that thought comes a new SA single, Paint Outside the Lines! Listen HERE
Let’s live this life without those parachutes. Investigate another point of view. Everybody gets to change. Everybody gets to move. Baby know we’ve got the right, to find another groove….
The rat-a-tat-tat of a rocking snare kicks into a jangly riff as the SA power pop stew mixes falsetto backgrounds, crunchy riffs, Sean Van Dommelen’s tasty fuzz drenched guitar solo with a catchy chorus that sticks in your head like bubblegum on a hot day!!

So continuing into 2015, Strangely Alright has implemented a somewhat different strategy for the band.

More on Strangely Alright
Take Weezer and Super Furry Animals sprinkled with some Bowie, and then add confessional lyrics ala John Lennon and you have Strangely Alright, a 5 piece Power Pop Band from the northwest that has, as Rockford Rowley from The Weekly Volcano says, “an undeniable emotional appeal. Ringing, triumphant chords and lyrics that allude to conquered tribulations immediately make the music relatable to everyone. Time can have a tricky way of beating people down and telling them to forget who they wanted to be and who they are. The fact that some members of the strangely clan are in recovery brings to mind the reality that people can find what was once lost.
Their song, “Crying Shame” was nominated for the 2013 NWME Song of the Year in the alt/classic rock category and recently SA’s music was included on the hit Seattle sketch comedy show “The 206”..
Critical acclaim for their recent singles along with shows at the prestigious Art On The Ave and The Western Washington State Fair and a appearance on Click 98.9 FM’s HOMEGROWN have been some of the band’s recent highlights. .
Strangely Alright’s last CD ‘The Time Machine Is Broken’ received rave reviews and radio airplay from around the world, including Great Britain, Australia and Sweden!
A track from the album, “Crying Shame”, was nominated for the NWME song of the year in the alt/classic rock category and recently SA’s music was included on the hit Seattle sketch comedy show “The 206”. They have been featured artist on a number of northwest shows including NWCZ’s ‘The Convergence Zone”, ‘The Aquarium” and “The Internal Narcissist”.
SA Singer Songwriter Regan Lane has had placement and airplay of his heartfelt pop and rock songs on numerous TV shows throughout the US, including A&E’s Biography,NBC Sports,VH1’s Top Twenty Countdown and Best Week Ever, Anthony Bourdains’ No Reservations and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew along with many other cable and network shows.
His jubilant pop song ‘U Won’t Believe’ was heard on NBC’s “Race across America” and was also the theme song for “Puget Sounds TV”, a Northwest TV show featuring local and national indie artists. “The Ocean Makes Her Cry'”was recently played on The Discovery Channels’ “Strictly Sex With Dr. Drew: Am I Normal?” and his pop gem ‘Junkie’ was heard on a recent Johnny Knoxville’s MTV special.
So Regan’s 80’s pop star experience, Ken Schaff”s driving hard rock influences, Jason Bair’s rocking military precision on drums, Ray Hayden’s keyboard crush on all things prog rock and Sean Van Dommelen’s crunchy white boy blues, all collide together creating their unique raw, energetic, sound deep seated with emotion. Lane’s charismatic presence and ability to get asses out of their seats and the underlying lyrical messages of hope, empathy, and love make each new catchy SA song an audience favorite!
