Coming from other projects such as Skylight, Bliss City East and Morpheme, Kim Welsh and Perry Pelonero started this project with their lives in mind, “to get back to writing music like we used to.” Named after their daughter Ada Star.. the first sales of the songs helped pay for some of the costs of some medical treatment Ada needed (she is doing great, by the way) Instead of waiting to release a full EP or album, the songs have been released one by one, appealing to people’s instant-gratification sensibilities. When you listen to their tracks, you will hear the raw passion and love for music… and once you get to know them, you’ll know that they are very active and supportive of the music community, supporting other bands and projects as much as they support their own. Dreamy, emotional and rock-driven with a generous dose of sexy.. that’s A*Star.
