"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.
