A Stranger and a Friend
A Stranger and a Friend is a collaboration between singer-songwriters Josh Schicker and Lindsay Allward. Based out of Atlanta, GA, the duo focus on creating music that is stirring and intimate while remaining accessible and beautiful.
Schicker’s musical career started in the mid-90’s fronting alt-rock bands in his native Michigan. Since going solo his focus has been on a more refined sound and vocal presentation. His solo efforts have found placements in indie film soundtracks and some international radio play. Most recently, Schicker’s ballad, “No Place Like You”, was featured in the romantic drama, Old Fashioned which recently released on DVD.
Allward, also a native of Michigan, came into singing more recently and song-writing is a natural expression of her buoyant personality. Allward’s ukulele keeps an element of levity to the set list while her cutting harmonies add drama to balance the scales. A strong melodic focus is at the forefront of their combined efforts resulting in a blend of honest and playful lyrics over lush acoustic music.
The duo plans to record their first album in the coming year and are focused on building a catalog of songs worthy of their audience. Combing the drama and vocal interplay of The Civil Wars and the sincere heartfelt yearning of The Swell Season, A Stranger and a Friend is carving out their own unique sound adding a little smirk to the mix. There is much more to come from this compelling duo.
A Stranger and a Friend have brought their folk-pop sound to Eddie’s Attic several times in recent years and are eager to return to the stage with some of their very best musical friends.
