Saw you at the Indian Market this weekend and I have to say, you blew me away! I have never seen you live until now and I'm so glad I finally got the opportunity. A lot of people at the show didn't know who you were, but from some of the conversations I overheard, you gained a lot of new converts and I think that's really cool! Good luck in Washington next month...Knock 'em dead! I wish you all the best for the future. You are absolutely going places and I know you will be huge someday! Take care and peace....

Hello, I found out about your site a few weeks ago which means I found out about you then. I've just watched and especially listened to your two songs on video. It seems to me that you're about to delight our ears and soul for a while 'cause you've got what it takes to break through boundaries of cultures and musical styles and reach anyone who can feel its heart beating. Thank you for this pleasure, present and to come. With respect and sincerity, Fabrice "Reece" Paillet, a "full blooded" French man (which means probably mixed with a little bit of everything, lol...).

2:29 AM I met Star last year at an OVCDC Film/Music Academy at Tule River. I enjoyed so much working with star as she helped me create music from my heart and made me realize that is what I want to do so bad. Star is one of the greatest people I have ever met and I hope to meet others like her and know that she will touch other's hearts with her music.

11:38 AM You are an amazing, powerful woman! I was so lucky to see you perform at the opening week of the NMAI, and I was blown away! The music itself is beautiful, and to pair it with a message is usually too much to ask for!! I went to buy the CD, but the person in front of me got the last one! I will buy one from this site. I am of Cherokee blood, and have 2 daughters... I want to raise them with as much Native spirit as possible in this world. I will be using your music to help do that! Thanks for all you do!! Heather
