Hi guys. I'm new here, but I wanted to put in a good word for Andi Starr. She is an amazing musician, not to mention one of the kindest and most "real" people I've ever known! Her style is fairly eclectic, but probably best described as ethereal rock. Her voice and music are quite unique, though it has been described as "hauntingly beautiful", and at times compared to Tori Amos, Shawn Colvin, The Cowboy Junkies, and The Cranberries. She just released her 4th album, "Leaving the White Line", which is currently available at CD Baby. For those in the Portland, Oregon area, there is a CD release party coming up on Januray 26th. It's $10 in advance or $12 at the door, with the album included in the price of entry, and cellist Adam Hurst opening the show. Please, do yourself a favor and listen to the amazingly beautiful music of Andi Starr, which will touch your soul and open your heart.
