With their unorthodox blend of old and new influences, ranging from 1930s American blues to British progressive rock, Stark defies categorization. For the last three years, this Brighton-based trio has been honing their songwriting and performance skills, recording, producing and releasing their own music - to huge critical acclaim. Their infectious melodies, profoundly poetic lyrics and unique arrangements have won Stark a dedicated and growing fan base.
A heavy touring schedule and frequent festival appearances including the Tenby Blues Festival, Brighton Fringe Festival and The Alternative Escape has began to put Stark on the map. Since the release of their debut EP, ‘Where the Grey Slates Meet’, they have built a strong following and gained a reputation for their superlative musicianship. The band's latest release, Stories From The Ground, sees them move up another gear - 2014 is set to be an exciting year.
On January 1st 2014, Stark released the first track from their latest release, Let’s Fall Down Together for free on Soundcloud. This was a result of an online vote where the fans could choose which track would be the first free download from Stories From The Ground.
A mini album launch has also been confirmed for Stark on March 4th 2014 at The Prince Albert, Brighton. Details and line up to be confirmed soon.
