A collaboration of music by Sara-Joy and Lamont Hiebert. They are warm and engaging---dripping with delicious harmonies, fun beats, clever lyrics, and catchy hooks. A bit ADD, they go from mellow and swaying, to foot stomping. They head into the studio in the spring of 2013.
Sara-Joy and Lamont are a duet from New Haven CT. They write and perform indie pop soul folk...
Prior to forming By The Stars in 2013, Sara-Joy was an emerging artist wowing local audiences with her beautifully effortless voice and song writing talents.
As both a musician and humanitarian, Lamont fronted the band Ten Shekel Shirt (2001-2009) and co-founded Love146 to combat child trafficking and exploitation. He helped direct the organization until 2013. He currently works for FilmAid and is also working on a TV documentary series highlighting effective solutions to humanitarian challenges around the world.
THE DEBUT BY THE STARS ALBUM WILL BE AVAILABLE SPRING OF 2014.
"I find it strange how life has an uncanny way of interrupting your perfectly poised plans.
I also find it fascinating how a stranger can start as a warm smile, so unexpected, and blossom into a friendship so special that you could not imagine your life without it." SJ
And so it goes with Sara-Joy and Lamont.
You will know them as By the Stars. The duet is a weaving of harmony and rhythm, fused with playful melodies and driving basslines. Songs tell stories of love and war---at once capturing the innocence of romantic abandon then traveling into distant narratives of loss and overcoming.
The pair desires to remind us that no matter where your steps have wandered---places planned, unwanted, or adventurous---feet have a funny way of finding themselves in moments so simple and beautiful that they may just feel like dancing.
Come sing and dance with By the Stars.
