Strange Condition takes an emotional journey through alternative rock, with bittersweet harmonies riding on a train of creative guitar hooks and groove drum/bass rhythms. Setting the foundation for their marketable sound is the solid combination of Cody Kasten on drums and Marcon on bass. Cody’s playful style, including a creative use of toms and high-hat work, keeps the audience moving at all times. Marcon drives the songs along, augmenting Cody’s rhythm with subtle use of notes. Building upon the tightest rhythm section in Colorado, Jas Kasten’s infectious, hook-laden guitar style snares the audience whether he’s playing a mellow acoustic, an intricate melody, or crunching it up thick and heavy. Jas’ sound alternates between a punch in the teeth to a soothing caress. The most distinct feature of Strange Condition lies in their unique use of two singers. Whether it’s Chad Pinther seducing listeners with a melody more raw, or Ryan Malloy’s mesmerizing, polished voice, each singer more than stands on his own. However, when they combine their perfectly complemented voices into heaven-dropped harmonies, they produce a vocal torrent of unequalled passion and emotion.
When Strange Condition takes their sound (which has been compared to Incubus, Matchbox20, Staind, and Nickelback) to the stage they create a visually stimulating performance with a passionate energy that is unmatched. Their songs originate from a love deep in their souls and no band expresses that love better than they do. While performing, their emotion drifts across the audience like a sonic wind through wheat until the packed house is jumping, moving, and singing with the energy these five create. The fervor they’ve displayed has earned them a reputation as the best live act in Colorado and is evident from the sold out shows at top clubs in Denver and Ft. Collins like Herman’s Hideaway, The Soiled Dove, the Fillmore Auditorium, The Starlight Lounge, Linden’s, Archer’s, and the Aggie Theater.
With the release of their debut album, Ebullition in July of 2003, the future for Strange Condition is only more promising. While working with Grammy award winning engineers, they were able to self-produce an album that not only captures the excitement and intensity of their live shows, but also demonstrates the intricacies and subtle touches of fine musicianship. When their awesome live performance is combined with the appeal of audiences for their album through steady and growing sales, Strange Condition has proved to be a veritable musical and emotional force that has garnered label attention. They look forward to moving ahead to the national level, as it is only a matter of time before Strange Condition becomes a not so strange name across the country.

Chad’s singing career began while attending graduate school in California. He sang with a cover band named "964".

Ryan was 5 when he was first introduced to music. His grandmother took him to see "The Sound of Music", which inspired his love of song. Ryan developed his sound by heavily involving himself in school choir throughout his childhood and high school years. Ryan has embraced music ever since. In 1997, he was asked to become the lead singer for a Denver-based local band. Following the band’s breakup, Ryan met Chad and Strange Condition was born. Ryan’s musical influences range from: Steven Page - Bare Naked Ladies; Matt Scene - Vertical Horizon; Adam Duritz - Counting Crows; Ben Folds; Bryan Adams and Billy Joel.
