Starring Me

The temperature dropped substantially today and Fall is now officially in full effect. It's that time once again to revisit the coats and sweaters that have kept me insulated for years. With music, it will be much the same here on MML, and today's featured artist makes for a wonderfully warm segue into the brisk close of another year. Starring Me is the low key, indie rock trio of Tara Golden (vocals), Reed Clendenen (music/vocals) and John Hashtak (music/vocals) from Jacksonville, Florida. If my calculations are correct, the band has been in existence since 2002 with a self titled, full length debut in 2003 and a later album titled Perfect In The Night that was made available in 2005. The featured track today will be a part of a yet-to-be-named upcoming long player you can expect to be released somewhere close to the '11th hour' of this year or, at latest, the beginning of 2008. For now, there is more information, another equally good new track and some earlier music available on the Starring Me MySpace page for download. From there, you can visit the Starring Me website where you will be able to listen to full versions of the band's previous material from Perfect In The Night. The CD is available for purchase there. Starring Me will kick off a handful of live performance dates commencing November 3rd at local Jacksonville venue Jack Rabbits. This band is a truly independent DIY project that should not be overlooked. Very nice.
