In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week Strange Familiar gives the scoop on Akron, OH.

After living in L.A. for four years, we’re just now getting back into the Akron music scene where we grew up. There is an eclectic mix of musical styles and genres from hard rock to the soulful sound of the Black Keys, to singer-songwriter/Americana to zydeco. It feels good to be home and to experience this real sense of camaraderie among all the bands and artists in town.
