Singer/guitarist Jimmy G from Indiana lives in his van and spends his days writing songs and staring at a laptop figuring out how to best manage, market, and promote his band. Drummer Jimi Tassone engineered and produced their debut album ‘Savior Self’ and handles all recordings, production, and artwork. Tommy Balls is a bass virtuoso as well as the artist who designs and manages all the merchandise (t-shirts, logos, stickers, etc.) And lead guitarist Frank Guertin is in charge of all booking, setting up tours, benefits, etc, as well as all video and video editing projects for the band.
With a style and sound like the Foo Fighters, Buckcherry, and My Chemical Romance in a game of twister, Craving Strange combinds personal and musical backgrounds in metal, pop, rock, and alternative to create music that is intense, fun, diverse, and infectious at the same time. The songs are filled with great musicianship, instant hooks, catchy choruses, and driving rhythms, while lyrically being honest, thought provoking and emotional. The band manages to sound fresh and yet familiar without resorting to tired clichés.
