Fervor Records is honored to perpetuate the musical legacy of Bruce Connole, a gifted, multi-faceted musician and songwriter who has enjoyed a string of critically acclaimed bands throughout his amazing career. Throughout the 70s, Bruce was associated with Billy Clone and The Same, followed by The Jetzons in the early 80s. By 1986 Bruce had formed The Strand, a band that helped to define the “Tempe Sound.” It is this sonic movement that would go on to launch many Mill Avenue bands to major-label deals and national prominence. The Strand experienced a different fate, becoming local legends and remaining critical darlings. 30 years later Fervor Records is proud to re-issue The Strand’s self-titled EP which was released by the band on cassette. Experience The Strand across Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, and beyond.Read More
