Stellarcaster are proud of the music they make.
Whether creating and performing original songs or having a crack at the tunes they admire, Stellarcaster give it everything. And they take as long as needs be to get it right before presenting it to an audience.
“It’s about respect,” says Tom, Stellarcaster’s bass player. “For the music and the people who have bothered to turn off their TVs and come see us play.”
“A lot of bands seem intent on creating a wall of noise,” says Paul, rhythm guitarist and lead singer. “We want people to hear the intricacies of our music.”
Stellarcaster craft the songs the writers provide with one guiding principle: Is each song the best it can be? Importantly, each trusts their bandmates’ instinctive understanding of their music.
Bob Spychal, the English producer of their debut album, Beyond The Door, suggests, “They work hard to do it correctly as a unit. They’re tight and complement each other. I think their motivation is to impress each other as much as an audience. I’m looking forward to recording their second album in early 2014. They’re very professional, but also enthusiastic and a laugh.”
The Stellarcaster originals are diverse, reflecting each band member’s love of melodic music and the components of the band are no less distinguished. The group encourage the energy between themselves and their audience and want to take it to everyone who cares about what makes music important: the shared experience.
Stellarcaster have played shows and festivals in many venues across Melbourne and The Peninsula, including The Frankston Waterfront Festival, The Espy (St.Kilda), The Reverence (Footscray), Ha’Pennies, Bahas, Beaches, Hickinbotham’s Winery and The Laundry Bar (Carlton).
The next time you join Stellarcaster live not only will you listen to a suitable selection of their original music, it is likely you will hear The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Arctic Monkeys, You Am I, Little Richard, Mental As Anything, Mia Dyson, Hoodoo Gurus, Tommy Emmanuel and Julian Lennon.
