StarHeart is a Progressive Americana duo that sometimes masquerades as a band, and full time for real are brother and sister. They don’t rehearse often because they’re ok w/ being ok, and their familial bond affords them an intimate familiarity those that are forged from the same vocal chords enjoy. They have a few full length, full band all original albums backed by musicians of the highest Nashvillian regard. They can appear like they don’t care, but when you see them play their music, you’ll discover they care too much to let go of the pain. They are content playing music in the fine venues of their neighborhood and love to co-host events showing a variety of traveling musicians coming through town. They don’t sing for their suppers and are jealous of all the wonderful people who do.


An old soul from the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, twenty-year-old Trae Sheehan has been writing songs and performing since the age of ten. A lover of imagery and storytelling through lyrics based on old stories and poems, he never shies away from the hard stuff, instead setting it out in the open to be heard and discussed. Pulling inspiration from the country/rock sound of The Eagles, the folk roots of Bob Dylan, and the swift melodies of John Denver, his songs are written from a place of honesty with an understanding of people and culture gained through his travels and performances. With a new record and his guitar in hand there’s no telling how far he’ll go.
