The Strangely Possibles are a curious mix. There was the keyboardist who would show half-dead, only to be resuscitated by old coffee or cheap red wine. When Latin terminology and stories about brokenhearted composers from the 17th century crept into his conversation, the engineer knew he was ready. The guitar player delivered the latest update on the next Armageddon as he lugged in 3 additional axes (just in case). And the bassist was a rock who, with two short words, kept the band chuckling through the night. From his wardrobe of loops, kits, and dozens of strange toys, the one-man rhythm department was a slave driver for precision while graciously shepherding a sometimes-wayward leader. Then young Romeo, the cellist, who smelled like cigarettes and dirty laundry, would usually nail something wonderfully righteous on the first take. The singer is something like an optimistic orphan taking a group of expert mountain guides on a trek without a map. Since age 12, he grew his head with wah-wah pedals, udu drums, orchestra swells & countermelodies. The other band members were surprised, yet inevitably turned on by his barrage of arrangement ideas.
