Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Bean (aka Sneaky Bones) explains, the title of his new album Strangers I’ve Already Met stems from his theory of familiarity and simulation.
“There’s a constant déjà vu going on,” he says. “Often when I meet someone, I think, ‘I know this person from somewhere’ and I try to track down our common thread. There usually isn’t one; just a vague, intangible connection or reminder of the people I do know, so everyone is just a stranger that you’ve already met.”
The music greets you with a soothing air of familiarity and bears all the marks in the road that led the Seattle-based musician to its creation, yet it’s resolutely original – a stranger you’ve already met. On one hand, Bean is retracing and re-framing the roots of folk, country, rock, grunge and soul because he loves the music madly, but on a deeper level, he filters their influence – adding his own magical force along the way – and in the process pushes the music forward.
Since he issued his 2015 debut, Dream of the End, Bean has toured across the US, Canada, Europe, and New Zealand. Sneaky Bones will be supporting his latest release with dates around Europe in May and New Zealand in November. For a full schedule head to
