Original songs and live performances featuring harmony vocals and rootsy, guitar-driven folk-rock and country rock have been the hallmark of the Stragglyrs since the South Bay band formed in late 2000. Members are Jim Barnes of Fremont on lead guitar and vocals; Bill Mishler of San Jose on drums, harmonica and vocals; Chris Purdum of Sunnyvale on bass, rhythm guitar, flute and vocals; Autumn Rose of Milpitas on banjo and vocals; and Hank Van Buren of Sunnyvale on 6- and 12-string acoustic rhythm and lead guitar and vocals. The band has an ensemble approach with all members writing and singing in two-to-five-part harmony. The Stragglyrs have released seven albums (including the critically acclaimed "Country Project" in 2011) featuring 101 original songs. They have sold thousands of CDs and have played hundreds of live shows.

6 Songs in progress
We now have 6 songs in progress for our upcoming EP. We added banjo and some vocals to the tracks last Saturday. All that's left is more vocals and some re-takes on individual tracks, then we can go to mixing and mastering.
