Identical Strangers only album was released in 1996 on Damascus Road Records (self-titled album), when Randy Thomas and Andy Denton joined forces. Randy, best known as a founding member of the Sweet Comfort Band and the Allies, was working with Andy to produce a solo project. Eventually, however, Andy realized he was uncomfortable as a solo act and invited Randy to join him. The result was Identical Strangers.
Andy Denton got his start singing for metal bands Ruscha and Legend Seven before working with Thomas. He did eventually release a solo project in 2000 and Randy reunited with Sweet Comfort in 2013. Identical Strangers had three singles from their only album in the top twenty radio charts between 1997 and 1998.
