Before her spiritual performance, Star took to the piano at Progressive Grounds and sang incredible covers of current pop stars. Customers who were there only to grab a coffee and go suddenly stopped and watched as Star mesmerized all. It was truly spectacular.
I recently asked Star a few questions about her inspirations, muses, and what she hopes audiences walk away with after a performance.
Where do you draw inspiration as an artist and musician?
As an artist, hm... I guess that's what I'll call my self. For me Art, is life. I live, I breathe, I watch, I listen. My day to day experiences shape what I create as art. I would also have to say that watching other people, has given me insight that totally effects my art.
Who are your muses?
My biggest muse would have to be the sun. I think alot about light and being light. It effects my mood so strongly having the sun. I would also say that riding public transit you can see so many emotions, almost perceptible as thought.
When did you realize art and music flowed through you?
I started reading outloud with my mom, she says I was two years old. So I think being able to read from such a young age had me dreaming. I also would sing along to the radio with my mom, music has always been apart of my day to day life.
What do you hope others take away from your performances?
Hm... this is difficult. I guess I'm giving people a little bit of my soul every time i perform. I share it gladly. I want people to realize, what they see in front of them, is my expression of life.
