With their unorthodox blend of old and new from both sides of the Atlantic, Stark defy categorisation. Their infectious melodies, poetic lyrics and unique arrangements have won Stark a dedicated and growing fan base. For the last three years, this Brighton-based trio have been honing their song writing and performance skills, recording, producing and releasing their own music - to huge critical acclaim. They have been featured as a Critic's Choice in Time Out, and R2 magazine described their last CD as 'an unexpected joy'. A heavy touring schedule and frequent festival appearances in 2013 began to put Stark on the map. The band's latest release, Stories From The Ground, sees them move up another gear - 2014 is set to be an exciting year.
