Stranger Friends, composed of songwriters Jamie Floyd and John Martin, have followed their musical instincts from a garage in Nashville to the world of independent film. After being asked to write one song for the Burt Reynolds movie, Dog Years, the band ultimately placed 12 songs in the movie, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in early 2017. A few weeks later, “The Best is Yet to Come” earned recognition at the Nashville Film Festival for best original song. The film and soundtrack album will be released in 2018.
Floyd grew up as the daughter of performing musicians in West Palm Beach, Florida, and landed her first record deal at 11 years old. While working as a
waitress, she co-wrote the exquisite title track to Ashley Monroe’s Grammy-nominated album, The Blade. A native of Stillwater, Oklahoma, Martin played football for Baylor University while continuing to write songs. He received his first-ever cut in Nashville with one of his musical heroes,Garth Brooks.
With a musical style that combines the harmony of the Everly Brothers with the grit of Tom Petty, Stranger Friend's self-titled EP will be released on October 20, 2017.
