The Star Patrol


Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Other.


This a brand new project. We are three veterans of the business that are fresh off a disappointing end to a promising band. We are looking to form an ecletic and accessible project with players that are also seasoned and relatively drama-free, with all vices in check. We care less about genre and style and more about doing something interesting, dangerous, and able to shake your ass to.

We all write lyrics and melodies as well. We are open to just about any instrumentation that makes sense, electronic or acoustic. We also are open to any gender, creed, or orientation. We especially encourage female vocalists. Our ideal is male and female vocals together, in some iteration.
