Duckstar brings an original rock sound - mixing alternative and mainstream with acoustic samples and lyrically intelligent tracks.

Biography

Originally hailing from Northeastern Pennsylvania, friends Bob and John searched out only the best guitar player and vocals and created Duckstar in 2000. The first time they played together, they knew they had found the right group and set out writing songs. They've been playing together and playing local gigs since 2005 and are looking to expand the Duckstar audience by stepping up the game and creating more original music.

Duckstar's influences include 90's grunge like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, industrial artists like Nine Inch Nails, alternative rock like The Smashing Pumpkins, Rage Against The Machine, Adema, and others.

Duckstar can't be thrown into a massive genre - as the influences from multiple genres come together beautifully to create their tracks.

Things To Note :
"On The Lily Pad" and "Pondwater" were co-written by Steve Famousguy, and have been mixed by DJ Hotstuff. The album was produced and recorded in Recording Studio, in central New Jersey.
