Album Network reviews Outerstar debut!
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW: You've heard it before: a musician is in a string of bands that don't go anywhere. Said musician has had a love of and talent for music since age three, but cannot seem to find his or her musical soulmate... until, during a chance meeting at a local hangout, lightning strikes. Well, this time the story's for real. Singer/songwriter Nat Schellin and multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Chris Martin's talent ignited when they met in 1993 and out of that fire was born Outerstar, a band with complex, rich and often velvety melodies. Schellin's vocal stylings bring to mind such greats as Bono and Richard Ashcroft, while the overall musical vibe leans heavily toward a British influence. Outerstar's eponymous debut album, due in stores November 6, was engineered and mixed by heavy-hitter Ed Buller (Suede, The Crystal Method, Stabbing Westward) - and it's guaranteed to take up prolonged residence in your CD player.
