the short of it: chris and sara started playing together in chris' living room in the summer of '97. zeke joined in, then later margaret. we played our first show at the cave in december of that year. later zeke bowed out and john played with us a couple of times before jerry joined in. then nathan volunteered his services. we recorded our first album. we did some touring. margaret moved to new york. we recorded another album. nathan started wembley. jeff offered to help out. did some more touring. then later ecki. these days, you never know what we'll look like. but most times it's sara, chris, nathan and jerry.

After self-releasing EP’s in late 2015 and early 2016, Stray Owls, the Mebane, NC duo of Scott Griffiths and Matt French are ecstatic to be releasing their first full length, A Series of Circles, on February 17th via Potluck Foundation, a Chapel Hill/Durham-based boutique record label for tastemakers and music nerds. Building on the fuzz-folk of their previous releases and live shows, the band fleshed out these recordings by incorporating mellotron, drums, a typewriter, piano, xylophone, banjo, and layers of feedback that all find a place, sprinkled throughout these ten songs. Matt and Scott trade lead vocals and fuse traditional storytelling with stream of conscious
imagery that seems to seep into their non-traditional structure of songwriting. Despite being self-taught, they play all the instruments on A Series of Circles, with the exception of drums. The album was recorded by veteran engineer, Jerry Kee (Superchunk, Polvo, Schooner, The Kneads), at his Duck Kee Studio (#8) in Mebane, NC. Jerry’s patience and willingness to let the band try things out were paramount to these recordings coming out the way they did. Jerry also handled drums and percussion duties on the album, which added another dimension to the songs the band couldn’t create as a duo. All in all, A Series of Circles was blessed by a few overly calculated last second decisions and some completely random happy accidents. Stay tuned for more. Stray Owls are just getting started.
