The Strange Familiar - Chasing Shadows

The Strange Familiar - lead by Kira Leyden (vocalist, keyboard) and Jeff Andrea (lead guitarist) - garnered early critical success with their Top 10 iTunes hit 'Courage Is' (featured as the promo theme on ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager) and Ashlee Simpson's hit song 'Invisible.'

The duo, having met in grade school in Akron, OH, started writing together when they were both 14 years old and have been collaborating ever since, crafting The Strange Familiar's captivating sound.

'Being Me' is a declaration of independence, more confident than self-effacing, with a smoky acoustic groove leading up to a jubilant chorus that shows off Leyden's soulful upper register.
