David Starr / Bio

David Starr is an Americana singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist living in Cedaredge, Colorado. His music has roots in Arkansas blues, country rock and classic rock. Influences range from The Band to Jackson Browne to Eagles to Eric Clapton and Todd Rundgren.

He has played bars, college gigs, weddings and concert stages since the age of 14. His Fayetteville, Arkansas hometown roots put him in close proximity to The Cate Brothers, Levon Helm and other great artists. Starr played drums and sang lead vocals with numerous local bands in the northwest Arkansas before picking up the guitar and fronting both there and in Aspen, Colorado in the early '80's. It was during his time in Aspen that he was able to share the stage with the likes of the Nitty Gritty Dirty Band, Dan Fogelberg, Kenny Edwards and others. He played in local Roaring Fork Valley groups as drummer, guitarist and vocalist, including the David Starr Band.

Starr owns and operates a retail music store called Starr's Guitars in Cedaredge, Colorado where he makes his home. He gigged with the David Starr Band until the fall of 2013 when he decided to devote more time to his solo efforts. The DSB opened for Travis Tritt, Survivor, The Guess Who and Clint Black in recent years in addition to playing dates all over the western slope of Colorado and in Starr's native Arkansas. In addition to keeping up a gigging schedule, Starr also promotes concerts in the small town of Cedaredge hosting such artists as John McEuen, Karla Bonoff, Michael Johnson, Dana Cooper and others. He also coordinates music for the Applefest every fall. And he was also fortunate to work with John Oates on as lead guitarist on a couple of shows in Colorado and Arkansas.

He travels for gigs from his home base on the south face of Colorado's Grand Mesa to performances in Texas, California, Arkansas and Canada. Plans are in the works for a UK tour in late 2014 on the heels of two UK HotDisc Top 40 chart successes with Way Past Ready (#6) and Alive Again (#13).

He has four solo CD's and one with The David Starr Band.
