September’s Bottega Live features Stray Local, for the full hour. When the couple is not performing as Stray Local they are running the roads and trails along their tour route, competing in 5ks through marathons. WHQR's Bottega Live airs each month in conjunction with Wilmington’s Fourth Friday Gallery Walk.
Stray Local is the husband-and-wife songwriting duo of Jamie Rowen and Hannah Lomas based in Wilmington, North Carolina. The pair performs a bouquet of indie sounds punctuated by rich vocal
harmonies, catchy guitar riffs, and well crafted melodies all woven together by their folk beginnings and new pop sensibilities. They released their debut EP “Passenger” in the summer of 2018.
When the couple is not writing or performing as Stray Local they are running the roads and trails along their tour route, competing in 5ks through marathons and even obstacle course races. In March 2019, they launched the Stray Local "Run Wild" campaign inspiring healthy living and an active lifestyle partnering with local run clubs throughout the country and rolling out their Run Wild activewear line.
