Stray Local is a young, energetic trio that formed in Wilmington, North Carolina in the summer of 2013. They got their start playing on the streets of downtown Wilmington and quickly moved up to venues around town and across the southeast. Jamie Rowen and Hannah Lomas attended college together at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, studying classical music, and began playing music together in the Old Time Ensemble, a class where musicians met to learn tunes of the Appalachian string band tradition. After graduation, the pair began writing songs together. Although initially the two wrote virtually (the two lived in different cities for their jobs), Jamie made the move to Wilmington in the summer of 2013 and the band officially began. A few months later, the duo met Nick Simon playing cajon with another singer/songwriter in town. The three hit it off and after one meeting, Nick was a perfect fit. A creative and adventurous musician, Nick is willing to play everything and anything, stomping, dancing, washboard...nothing is out of the question. Nick also plays bass on the album (our custom made washtub bass. His name is George Washintub). Jamie Rowen is the string master, playing his vintage 1946 Gibson expertly, as well a his uncle's old banjo. However, Jamie and Hannah's vocal harmonies are what sets Stray Local's music apart. The two blend seamlessly, while also supporting each others solos and letting the other shine. Hannah's voice can soar above the driving rhythms of their bluesy originals but can also be sensitive and controlled, drawing you into the more subtle songs. She also adds mandolin and keyboard into the mix, rounding out the band's soundscape. The trio now lives together in their downtown Wilmington home and enjoys gardening, bike riding, running, writing music, and hosting game nights together. Oh, and eating Nick's delicious and masterful home cooked meals!
