Opportunity knocks only so often. Low Stars found theirs by teaming four singers who share a love – make that a passion – for vocal harmonies originally inspired by Crosby, Stills & Nash and the Eagles.
Low Stars music is an exhilarating, hook-laden blend that is full of the same hope and idealism that fueled some of their idols. The song “Calling All Friends,” which was chosen as the theme for ABC TV series “What About Brian,” could be a motto of the group, as could the graceful Russo composition “Can’t Live Without Your Love” and “Love, Love, Love,” a Jude composition. Other standouts include the sunny, So-Cal-infused “Need a Friend” (boasting a texture evoking the Eagles’ “Take It Easy”), the mellow “Warmer Wind,” Grateful Dead-like “Tracks in the Rain,” and the probing “Child,” a Seefried tune that gently asks, “What do you see, child?” “All these songs are sort of an amalgam of everybody’s experiences over the last four to five years,” says Russo. “I know Chris got into this song because he was about to become a father, and I’m about to become a father. I listen to this and it has new meaning for me. All of these songs have that. It was really important for us to put together a record that was meaningful lyrically.”
The four caught the attention of Starbucks Entertainment who decided to feature the group in the Company’s innovative Starbucks Hear Music™ Debut series which was created to introduce Starbucks customers to exciting new artists.
