PRESS RELEASE - LINEUP CHANGE
WELL-KNOWN STRANGERS PRESS RELEASE
Well-Known Strangers, a SE Wisconsin-based Indie/Pop/Alternative band, has announced changes to its current lineup.
Jon Wolf, rhythm guitarist and contributor on the band’s debut EP “Found”, has decided to leave the band due to a personal desire to focus on family and career. The decision to depart the band was not an easy one for all involved, and members of Well-Known Strangers look forward to a continued relationship with Jon. The band adds, “We are saddened with the news that Jon will be leaving us, but honor and respect his decision to focus on his key priorities. Jon’s truly a great guy, talented musician / songwriter, and good friend.”
Joining the band is Theodore Koth, Milwaukee resident and deeply talented and classically trained musician, who immediately steps in the lead guitarist role sliding Joe Adamek over to fill the void on rhythm guitar left by Jon’s departure. Ted has specialized in guitar performance for 25 years playing in numerous bands including (most recently); Jackie Brown and the Boys and Sound Therapy. Classically trained, Ted is highly educated in music specializing in classical guitar performance with theory, writing, and orchestration rounding out his education. Band founder Joe Adamek states, “Well-Known Strangers is thrilled with Ted’s decision to join our group. His talents and experience…not only his amazing work as a lead guitarist and tremendous abilities with other instruments…but his strength in songwriting, sound, and vocal harmonies will add so much depth and energy to our sound. For those that have had the privilege of watching Ted perform live know exactly how much infectious energy and excitement he’ll bring to Well-Known Strangers shows. We all look forward to working with Ted.”
Well-Known Strangers are currently in the studio recording their 5th single, “Mirror”, and are hard at work finalizing their live performance set for upcoming shows, including their EP release party on Friday, October 17th at Route 20 Outhouse in Sturtevant, WI.
