"Starlume Rocks Out Memorial Union"

Not known for its rock and roll scene, Topeka was given a rare, unexpected treat.
With a sound that was at times melancholy, at times upbeat, Starlume rocked a show that featured brand new tracks with a mix of familiar favorites that Washburn students embraced. The audience kept trickling in throughout the show and those that made the trek weren't disappointed as the band from Nashville, Tenn. gave a performance worthy of some of their influences.
Starting off with the song, "get found" the band took the audience into a sound that was reminiscent of British band Coldplay as the song featured some unique drum beats that gave it a sound that was stylistically close but yet different as they worked through the song that featured intense sounds from lead guitarist Nate Woodall. The band would continue through their set with a Tom Petty cover that the audience responded to.
In between songs the band worked in their style of interplay between themselves and the crowd joking about writing songs on the trip to Topeka. The thing that took the band most by surprise were the current conditions in the capital city.
"Man you guys have like six inches of snow on the ground," said Landon Rose, lead singer. "We get like a quarter inch in Nashville and the town shuts down. Game over man."
The band continued into the set with the song, "angel of the sea" that took on a melancholy sound that was almost Irish folk music mixed with a little bit of a dissonant chord sound that gave the song almost a quasi-middle eastern influence that left the audience spellbound.
Taking the music into a new direction, the band then busted out a cover of Ceelo's "Crazy," getting the crowd involved with the audience chiming in on the bridge and helping to build the energy in the room.
The band then finished up the evening with a cover of iconic band U2's "Where The Streets Have No Name" that paid homage to the band from Ireland and yet allowed them to put their own touch with a strong performance from both Bassist Isaac Wriston and Woodall.
Afterwards, the band spoke about how their performance fit into, "No Name Calling" week in their minds.
"Even though we play with a lot of energy and our sound can be pretty strong, we like to sing and play uplifting music," said Woodall. "It's just awesome that we can be a part of something like that kind of uplifting event."
The band also felt a positive energy in the way Washburn students responded to their performance.
"In Nashville a lot of people go somewhere to meet and so we're just the background music for them," said Wriston. "It's awesome to see people who are there watching you and listening. You don't see the glow of cell phones on their faces. They just came to listen and that's awesome."
The band will be in Joplin, Mo. over the upcoming weekend before they head home to Nashville to prepare for a trip to San Antonio, Texas. For more information on Starlume check out their official website at and follow them on facebook at - The Washburn Review

"Next Big Thing : Starlume"

Wow, talk about a band blowing me off my feet. I had never heard of Starlume until I stumbled upon their music on MySpace. I messaged them with a hope that maybe I would get some info regarding the group, since I couldn’t find much of their music anywhere. However, not only did they email me back with a warm response, they provided three unique mp3s - two brand new ones that have yet to be released and will be out on their upcoming Spring EP.

As for the group, Starlume formed when Landon Rose (vocals/keys/guitars) and Corey Eggleston (drums/backing vocals) began a musical journey over six years ago by recording songs that they had written together and playing shows across the country with several friends and musicians. This eventually led to settling in Nashville during the summer of 2007 and a year later, they completed Starlume with the additions of Robert Smith (bass) and Nate Woodall (guitars).

It’s shocking that Starlume is not on radio stations everywhere right now - they combine the perfect blend of accessible pop with some darker overtones that keep them from, as many of us like to say, “selling out”. The lush arrangements and Rose’s falsetto vocals make for such a full and cinematic sound, so its no surprise that their song, “So Please” (mp3 below) was recently featured on an episode of One Tree Hill - a show that disappoints as television, yet consistently manages to find some of the best music out there. And Starlume is no exception. Listen to the mp3s below (with the group’s brief description for us); You’ll be getting a sneak peek at a band that will surely be making waves all over the country in no time.

Starlume - “Angel of the Sea” [MP3]. Starlume says: “This song is unreleased and will be on the EP we put out this spring. The version you hear is a pre-production track that we’ve recorded, mixed, and produced ourselves in our downtown Nashville rehearsal space this winter. We’re currently working on a “better” version in a “real” studio: )”

Starlume - “Devils Don’t Sleep” [MP3]. Starlume says: “Same as ‘Angel of the Sea’.”

Starlume - “So Please” [MP3]. Starlume says: “This is from our last release, Get Found EP, and was recently featured on the Feb. 2 episode of One Tree Hill. It’s available on iTunes as well as on our MySpace.”

"Fresh From the Oven"

Starlume – Starlume (EP) ~ On their recently released, self-titled extended play, the Nashville, TN foursome of Landon Rose, Corey Eggleston, Nate Woodall and Issac Wriston dive once again into the popular rock niche that has gained them a significant fan following. This release recalls the jangly, guitar-driven melodies of bands like Vertical Horizon and Australia’s Taxiride, while forging a sound that can only be called their own. Rose’s flowing and emotional vocal delivery punctuates each chorus with a voice that sounds much more primed than might be expected from the front-man of a band that is still so relatively young (his dramatic background is an asset). To that powerful presentation, they then add the fluid assemblage of Eggleston and Wriston’s rhythm with Woodall’s expressive guitar. It is no wonder that Starlume is on the road all across the United States, because this is a band that is solidly behind the wheel. Label: Independent release. Release Date: Available now on iTunes. - Sonic South Blog

You make a living performing and singing for thousands of people. Your face is on billboards. The spotlight is on you. For most, giving up that lifestyle would be hard.  For Landon Rose, there was no question when he decided to leave his job in Branson, MO performing as a lead actor in off-broadway shows. Joined by his long-time friend and drummer, Corey Eggleston, the duo arrived in Music City, USA during the fall of 2007. The following year, Starlume was complete with the addition of guitarist Nate Woodall, and bassist Isaac Wriston.
After landing a song from their Get Found EP on the CW's One Tree Hill ("So Please") and receiving airplay on over 250 college and independent radio stations with their Lost in War EP, they teamed with producer Jon King (Augustana, Throwing Gravity, Darling Parade) and mix veteran Craig Alvin (Hanson, Chevelle, Athlete) for their latest self-titled EP. Drawing from influences spanning 4 decades of music, they crafted a set of songs that place highlight their love of melody. With a sound so accessible and intriguing, it’s not wonder that they have had music licensed for use on several TV networks, including MTV, E!, and VH1. Filled with tastefully epic drums, throwback bass lines, smooth vocals, and contagious melodies, their latest self-titled EP is proof Starlume strives to make music that has an impact for years to come.
