Description:Americana artist David Starr possesses “a compelling voice, something truly special, both accessible and passionate” (Elmore), that has been honed releasing nine albums, touring internationally, and opening shows for esteemed artists such as John Oates (Hall & Oates), Karla Bonoff, The Steel Wheels, Survivor, and more. Starr’s latest project, Beauty And Ruin, is a musical and literary adventure, produced and arranged by John Oates and co-produced by Starr and David Kalmusky. The collection of songs is inspired by Of What Was, Nothing Is Left, a novel written by Starr’s grandfather in 1972. “It is like watching a movie,” says Oates. “The cinematic aural landscape visually evokes a classic tale of tragedy, love gone wrong and an exploration of human nature and all its flaws.” Beauty and Ruin and an updated edition of Of What Was, Nothing Is Left are set for release in February 2020. $15 in advance; $18 day of show.
