Rock / Pop String Quartet
Think rock, pop and soul and you think electric guitars, drums and keyboard. But why should a musical style be restricted by it's instrumentation?
With this in mind, vocalist Tim Hood approached arrangers Timothy Kraemer and Bill Thorp with the idea of reworking a collection of classics such as Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze for string quartet, bass and voice.
The result is STRUNG OUT
Their repertoire ranges from sweeping arrangements of Queen and Sting to raw renditions of The Kinks and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
STRUNG OUT make mischief with Abba and dive into the grooves of James Brown and Stevie Wonder. Pink Floyd’s Money has a sound of its own.
