About

We Are Strange Karma

We’re Paul and Martin Strange and we’re the brothers behind the Australian rock band Strange Karma. Together with our amazing drummer Jason McDonald and bassist Doe Prijono we’ve just finished recording our latest studio album. . . which we're simply calling “Strange Karma”. 

Get Ready To Rock!

We believe this a great rock record with the perfect mix of classic influences, modern styles and a whole load of Strange Karma attitude. We can’t wait to get this album into the hands of our fans and to introduce Strange Karma to the rest of the world. 

This album was made totally our way, without compromises or interference.  Which means we skipped the studio system and have been doing everything ourselves. And we’re really excited about how things have come together.

We've Recorded A Great Album

Recording is done.  It took months of hard work but the album is 100% recorded... but we still need your help to make our dream album a reality. Fortunately we’ve got a great team, lead by legendary music producer David Ivory. Working with a Grammy nominated producer who worked with everyone from hip-hop artists like The Roots to rock acts like Halestorm has helped take our sound to a whole new level.

What's The Money For? 

We recorded the album and paid for all the studio time on our own dime but now we need your help.  There's still mastering and mixing to be done, album artwork to be created, physical CDs and Vinyl to produce and so many other crazy expenses that still stand between us and creating an awesome Strange Karma record that we think the fans, and the rest of the world, deserves. 

Every single penny will go towards creating the ultimate Strange Karma record and the best possible rewards for everyone who supports this project.  And if we're lucky enough, because you guys are so amazing, that we exceed our goal then we've got some great ideas for bringing you even more Strange Karma... maybe even live to your town!  But absolutely none of this will be possible if we aren't able to reach our goal.  

We're a proud, and yes sometimes cocky, rock band but we know that we're nothing without the support of our fans.  That's why we're humbly asking you to help us make our dream come true. 

We know that there are lots of other things to spend your hard earned money on and lots of other music you could choose to listen to... so we truly appreciate it that you've taken the time to check our project. 

And we hope you'll go ahead and get a little Strange Karma for yourself!

Risks and challenges

We understand as well as anybody that the world of rock and roll, and rock stars in particular, can be pretty crazy and is always unpredictable (after all we're not called Strange Karma for nothing) but we can promise that if you guys help us reach our goal that you're going to get this album in your hands as quickly as humanly possible.

As anyone in music knows, the biggest delays and problems that come up when making a record happen during the recording process. . . but our album is already 100% recorded. Which means once we reach our goal we'll be able to get right to work finishing the album and getting it right to you.
