More info on the album...
"STRANGE WAYS is the Sophomore release from Chicago's own SMOKER (Formerly Stephen Paul Smoker). Following the acclaimed release of RIPE FRUIT in 2012, the band has expanded on their often times honest and sometimes down right weird approach to song writing. This is a musicians band. But on STRANGE WAYS they reach out to everyone with what might be their most accessible record yet. They continue to inspire and surprise with their ability to draw you into the song. It seems to be their highest endeavour, and they succeed with grace and brilliance."
