Betsy Ade & Well Known Strangers

Betsy Ade & the Well-Known Strangers have been entertaining Midwest audiences with their cello infused, alternative pop/rock sound. Members Joe Adamek (acoustic guitar), Betsy Ade (lead vocals, guitar), Cameron Fair (cello), Roger Gower (drums/percussion), Brittany Lumley (multi-instrumentalist, supporting vocals) and John Kulas (bass guitar) released released their latest EP “Path Away” on May 4th, 2018 and radio stations around the country are spinning & streaming their single “Sidewalk”.

Together, the band members have an amazing mix of musical knowledge and education that provides a unique sound that is reminiscent of familiar of music from the ’90s while being expressively groundbreaking and melodically rich. They have been humbled by their success and performing with acts that include Blind Melon, Blue October, Candlebox, and many more.
