Starr Saunders is a singer/songwriter from Oakland California. She has been writing music and singing since she was a  young girl and she says writing songs is an uncontainable compulsion for her. When a song is coming out, it takes precedence over everything and finds its way out of her, either on a piece of paper, a recording device or by calling herself and leaving a message on her answering machine with melody and lyric ideas.

She took some detours and stopped writing for a couple years. After experiencing what can only be described as an "emotional exorcism" she realized that she could not live without songwriting, and jumped right back in after being asked to help collaborate on a hip-hop track with a friend. (She wrote and sang the chorus of the song.) The song ended up winning "Best Hip-Hop Song" for the 2010 Malibu Music Awards. In 2012, she was nominated for "Best Pop Song" and "Best Singer/Songwriter Song" as well and was the first artist to ever be nominated for two different categories!

She has performed in several different types of bands ranging from pop/rock, blues, punk and hip-hop, thought her "home genre" is pop/rock.  She has produced and released two solo albums. Currently, she is working on new material in all different genres of music and collaborating with several other artists including Grammy Award winner Dave Merenda and chart hitting producer Richard (KIDD RICH) Harris. She has a publishing deal with Five Alarm Music and works on a variety of collaborations for music licensing.

In June, 2013, she won "Best Song" for her song "Rocket Ship" for the month of June West Coast Songwriters song Competition.

By day, she is a self-described "female Jack Black" from the movie "School of Rock" and teaches High School students how to write and record music as well as the history of Rock and Roll.

She says her bottom line goal with her music is to heal herself and others and encourage all people to not be afraid to be who they really are, everyone can fly.
