Biography

www.katestarr.com

***************************************
Full of grit and art, hot and smart, Kate Starr's music serves knockout blows to what you assume a woman in rock can achieve. It punches back the edges of musical expression, is unabashedly honest with dark, bruising electricity, yet is bright and gorgeous.

Singer-songwriter guitarist leader of a three-piece Indie-Rock Punk band from New York and Virginia, Kate Starr started writing songs at four, later doing soulful studio sessions for artists like the Grammy Award winning Blind Boys of Alabama. She is now at the front of a Brooklyn-led rebellion against music's corporate conformity, espousing the self-sufficient do-it-yourself Indie-Rock esthetic.

Starr’s strikingly original debut EP Questing Through Chaos and her magnetic concert presence beckon intellectuals and romantics alike, expanding her cult following.

Lyrics

Little Miss Liberty

Written By: Kate Starr

Little Miss Liberty

You walked in like a little hurricane
Wrecking everything in site
You knew
You knew

You know what you have done
You’ve gone and dropped the bomb
Your work is done
Move on, Move on

You’re dancing with little miss liberty
She knows every move
You move her
You move her

You know what you have done
You’ve gone and dropped the bomb
Your work is done
Move on, Move on

You’re dancing with little miss liberty
She knows every move
You move her
You move her

You know what you have done
You’ve gone and dropped the bomb
Your work is done
Move on, Move on

Dream/ Not Dream

Written By: Kate Starr


Middle of dark
I see your lightness
Shadowy opposite
Hear no words
Yet, I know your story
Touch my hand and
Away with me
Up we go
Away
Fly my heart to the edge of sadness
Tell me how you know this way
Show me things of your world so foreign
Hold my hand or I'll surely go astray
Up we go
Away
I might say that I want to stay with you forever
But I know I can't stay
I get up now I'm travelling lightly
Down the road that makes up me
Wonder if all those passers-by may see
My shadowy friend I know is following me
Up we go (it's a dream/not a dream)
Up we go (it's a dream/not a dream)
Up we go (it's a dream/not a dream)
Away

Ruby's Remembrance

Written By: Kate Starr

The touch of sky
That's in your eye
It creeps in
My peeps in
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
The stairway
The stairway
The stairway
You creep in
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
I can't get you out of my head
I can't get you out of my head
I can't get you out of my head
I can't get you out of my head
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
You're on my mind
You're on my mind

Say Something Beautiful

Written By: Kate Starr

Say something beautiful
Say something beautiful
Say something beautiful and true
Take something wonderfu;
Take something wonderful
Take something wonerful with you
Build with me won't you
Build with me won't you
Build with me won't you, a dream
Days go by so quickly now
They're almost too fast to see
So shake up the morning
And hold fast the night
And tell me what do you
What do you
What do you dream?
Say something beautiful
Say something beautiful
Say something beautiful and true
Take it apart
Take it apart
Take it apart and
Build it better
Stand up and tell me your part
Stand up and tell me your part
Stand up and tell me your part
Action, Action, Action!
Days go by so quickly now
They're almost too fast to see
So shake up the morning
And hold fast the night
And tell me what do you
What do you
What do you dream?
