We’re super excited this week to have George Fetner of George Fetner & The Strays’ as our guest on No Simple Road. “There’s a lot you could say about the varied pursuits of guitarist/bandleader/
composer George Fetner. But the most pressing takeaway here is that he and his merry band of pranksters in the Strays can burn down a stage with glee – less of a jam band than an omnivorous, chops-heavy rock outfit whose eclecticism is presented with uncommon acuity. Expect a blaze of a set from a group that knows just when to sprawl out and, conversely, when to make a sharp left turn” – Free Times, 10/2019
Columbia, SC’s George Fetner and the Strays have steadily gained attention from music-lovers and musicians alike. Culling influences from nine proficient performers, the band has developed a soulful, southern sound rooted in rhythm and blues, improvisatory rock, and captivating musical left turns.
We catch up with George and talk about making a return to the stage after the hiatus of the last couple of years, how the feeling of playing live has changed and how that spills over into the day-to-day, why it is important to remind ourselves of the communal aspect of music, and much more!
