The Stray is a group of musicians who became friends through music. Jon Robinson (lead singer) is a former member of the rock band Come Wind who made a pretty big dent in the indie rock music scene. Jon, Tyler (drummer) and Jared (bass) have been friends for a decade and now are bringing us some hard hitting tunes that will demand your attention and fill your hearts. With an EP set to come out in 2018 and a strong touring record already behind them. The Stray is ready to make musical waves in the world.
"WE TAKE OUR MUSIC SERIOUSLY BUT WE DON'T TAKE OURSELVES SERIOUSLY."
We come across some crazy things in our travels through the country. We meet amazing people and sometimes wear panda heads when we find them back stage at our concerts. We take our music seriously but we don't take ourselves seriously.
Jon Robinson is the mind behind The Stray. A former guitar player for Come Wind and a student of Berklee College of Music. Jon finds a lot of his musical inspiration from stories of his life and the things, and people, he encounters in everyday life. Jon enjoys politics, and spending all of his money on food.
Jared Barton is a former Marine as well as a former member of a band called The Great Transparency. Jared is the heartbeat of the band. He always has a ton of energy and is incredibly positive. His personality makes the long days on the road so much more interesting than they would be. Jared loves long walks on the beach and wasting time.
Tyler Neading is the bands backbone. He's a very talented drummer thats played in many bands throughout his lifetime. He has a mind for organization and communication and keeps us in check as we travel the states. Ty loves coffee, photography, and his future wife.
We are 3 people that have come to know each other through music. We now travel the country playing music about the struggles, hard-times, and good-times we experience in life.
