Lady Star & The Busting Loose Blues Band / Bio

My parents are from Hollendell, Mississippi, but moved to Joliet, Illinois in the mid 50's, justMy parents are from Hollendell, Mississippi, but moved to Joliet, Illinois in the mid 50's, just before I was born. I was raised on Blues. My father told us that if we didn't like his music then we could just go to bed. I would stay up at first just to keep from having to go to bed early, but the more and more I listened, the more I loved the music. I don't know if it was because of my father or the music that worked it's magic, but the Blues became a part of my soul. I think that church had a lot of influence on me through the music. I always say "Blues is nothing but Church with a little twang added to it." Plus what you can't say in church, you sure can sing in Blues.

I moved to San Diego, CA in the mid 70's and started performing Classical Music, R&B, and Jazz, but they didn't move me like the Blues. "Just something about singing the Blues makes the spirit move all through me."

Lady Star is the "Real Deal". In the spirit of Koko Taylor, Etta James, and Tina Turner, this blues diva delivers like few others can. A native of Chicago, Lady Star has paid her dues. Since moving to San Diego, Lady Star has sung the blues on her terms in nearly every smoke- filled bar room on both sides of the border. For two years Lady Star made her rounds in Mexico, performing with some of the country's finest musicians. In the United States, Lady Star has shared the bill with such blues legends as B.B. King, Koko Taylor, Jimmie Vaughan & The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Dr. John, and Carey Bell. Lady Star has been a crowd favorite at San Diego music festivals such as the Adams Avenue Street Fair, Street Scene, San Diego Arts Festival, and the Super Blues Fest.

Lady Star can best be described as a down-home blues singin' woman who leaves a bit of herself on stage each and every time she performs. Lady Star admits that, "the spirit just takes me. You can't fool the people, so when I'm going to give a performance, I have to make sure I give 200%." More importantly, people who have seen her show have a better understanding of what the blues is all about.
