Nemes with Strangers By Accident
Nemes (pronounced kneemiss) has made their mark on the Boston and larger New England music scene by playing everywhere from subway stations to highly-revered rock venues. Led by duel-frontmen Dave Anthony and Josh Knowles, the band showcases a true metamorphosis of sound, featuring warm, layered harmonies and one-of-a-kind violin shredding Vanyaland describes as "fiddle-action glory." These components are delicately layered across captivating original songs to form what Under the Gun Review calls "some of the most engaging music we've heard," garnering shout-outs from national and international acts such as Alt-J and Nirvana.
Hailing from the same dirty-water city that birthed favorites like Aerosmith, The Pixies, and Guster, and new indie heroes like the Ballroom Thieves and Honeysuckle, Strangers by Accident are an authentic, energetic indie-folk act with an old-school respect for songwriting. Their debut EP, recorded at BearTone Records in 2016, was released less than two years after Brian Sousa and Amy Wynne met as strangers on a rainy day in Boston, played a song called Accident, and started playing open-mics as an acoustic duo.
Two years later, the two singer-songwriters have become a powerful live act, adding Justin Bartlett on vocals and electric guitar, and Heidi Crampton on drums and background vocals. The foursomes sound has evolved, with lyrically-driven, powerful songs that feature three and four-part harmonies and veer from suitcase-stomping acoustic, to snare-pounding electric, with stops everywhere in between.
