Star City is a five-piece rock band based in New York, with roots in pop, punk, and country rock. A major profile of the band in No Depression magazine (July 2001) began with the simple question: "Could the best twang-informed roots band you''ve never heard be alive and thriving in, of all places, New York City? It could well be. The outfit in question is Star City"
Throughout 2000 and 2001, crowds outside of Star City''s regular downtown Manhattan haunts have been cheering their appearances-during a stand in London, a tour that took them from Raleigh-Durham to Nashville and Chicago, appearing with the likes of the Blood Oranges and the Bottle Rockets, and a dramatic show at the celebrated Twangfest gathering in St. Louis.
Star City has just released their second CD, Inside the Other Days, produced by Dennis Diken (drummer for the Smithereens) and Dave Amels (Lenny Kravitz). Built on a dozen new Jason Lewis originals, a mix of hook-driven mid-tempo rockers that build into high-energy screamers and goosebump-raising modern ballads, the disc shows influences from hard ''70s rockers such as Neil Young, John Lennon and the Allman Brothers, to ''90s https://www.tradebit.comk and https://www.tradebit.comntry--adding up to a sound that''s utterly their own.
