The Starfolk make melody-rich chamber pop music that rocks in front man Brian Tighe’s quintessentially ethereal way.  Tighe fronted power-pop darlings The Hang Ups in the 90’s, co-fronted bittersweet girl-boy poppers The Owls starting in the aughts, and also plays lead guitar with the belovedly hush-toned Jeremy Messersmith.

“Tighe still boasts that distinctively airy tenor and a penchant for setting beautiful vocal melodies atop unusual chord progressions — recently described with rightful awe by Messersmith as “like doing ballet in a minefield.” In fact, The Starfolk achieve a far broader sound than that of their frontman’s power-pop past.”–Rob Van Alstyne, City Pages

    My name is Sam and I make music with a band called Ruben. We all enjoy your music and wondered how we might be able to contact the group regarding possibly playing together sometime. We’d love to share an evening of music with you all.
