"Starryville continues to evolve"

Lots of good moments. Overall, a sweet production and a very listenable disc. loved: lyrics are intriguing - definitely one of the high points. the 80s flashback action - put a smile on my face and felt good motorin' down the highway. Bass rocks -wish there was more. . .

"The Pop Quiz: Starryville"

Quick—everyone who loves contagious melodies and catchy grooves, pack up your things and move to STARRYVILLE. Or, buy the band's latest CD, which includes such ear-pleasing, dance-happy songs as "Compromise 20," "If You Say," and "A B." (Listen here.) Alexes (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), PJ (guitar), Arnaud, aka Dr Thorn (bass), Matt (keyboards, backing vox), and Jason, aka Coop (drums), hail from Northern Virginia, mythical Missouri, and even far-flung France, but D.C. brought them together to create the kind of music that, frankly, D.C. needs badly. And we need more of it, too. - washington city paper

Hailing from Virginia and France, the band Starryville came together… to create the type of music everyone needs…pure rock and roll…collectively influenced by retro, modern, alternative and folk rock sounds… Do not look for us in one tiny box, category or stereotype. With a combined 20 years of experience, we continue to challenge ourselves to write thoughtful and accessible songs, packed with contagious melodies and catchy grooves; and on stage, with professional, tight and energetic live performances.

Starryville evokes a theme, a color and a flavor that is unique, combining melodic and thick guitars with simple rhythms, textural keyboards and driving bass lines. Combined, creating a sound that is different enough, but still able to attract music fans across many genres. Our songs can morph from pulse quickening electric, to quiet acoustic, bouncing into many genres along the way from modern/indie rock to… alt. country and beyond.
