Strangeletter is a post-industrial rock music project based in Portland, Oregon. Its influences span a wide range of genres, and its sound moves from a frenzied assault of guitars, percussion, and interstellar synths to more intimate compositions of layered strings, pianos, and computer loops, interwoven with soaring vocal melodies.

Strangeletter was founded in 2007 by native Portlander, Steve Bayless. As its main producer, singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Bayless is largely responsible for the vision of the band. After 3 years of intense writing and recording, Strangeletter's self-titled debut album was released in the fall of 2009. To translate the music to the stage, Bayless assembled the musical talents of Phillip Ferrier (drums), Paul Carrigg (bass), Andy Manla (synths, loops, backing vocals) and Elina Niemelä (piano). With Bayless on lead vocals and guitar, Strangeletter realized its live incarnation.

Strangeletter is currently playing shows in and around the Northwest and California, and is the West Coast's premier up-and-coming hard rock/electronic hybrid. Their performances have been described as an "epic, cinematic experience, replete with old-school arena anthems, and haunting modern pop arrangements."
