 Eric Starr
By Bob Silvestri

Music can transport you to places you can only imagine. On his latest disc titled She local music prodigy and rising national talent drummer Eric Starr takes us on one of those journeys. Using Latin, Native American and World rhythms he has made a remarkable record. The liner notes explain these themes to you as related to the song but even without that knowledge the music exposes the location to the listener. The gentle nylon plucked guitar of “Salta (Tren a las Nubles)” invokes South America while “Wakangli” feels tribal in nature. All six tracks are over five minutes in length and allow the songs to flesh themselves out without being self indulgent. Other tracks of note include “Tender Night” and “She Didn’t Know”. Artists helping to create the music along with Eric Starr include brother Nelson Starr on vocals and keyboards, Dominic Miller and Dan Heck on guitar, Iain Bellamy on sax and others.
