David Starr, who is based in Colorado, is a veteran of what we these days call the Americana scene. Not long ago, we'd have called it Country Rock. We might have even called it that California Sound, since it fits right in with groups like Souther Hillman & Fury or Poco. Indeed, David has shared the stage with Fury, as well as with John Oates, John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Kenny Edwards (Linda Ronstadt) and the Guess Who, to name a few. His 2015 record "Love & Sabotage" featured guest appearances from Oates, Furay, and Steve Cropper.
"Doing Christmas Right" is a tale of finding the true meaning of the season after years of getting it all wrong. It's smooth and sweet and easy on the mind and good for the soul. The cover, by the way, shows David's Colorado store, Starr's Guitars. Get "Doing Christmas Right" as a free download from Bandcamp.
