ROCK: Hard Rock, ROCK: Emo
Singer/songwriter/bass player, Lani Ford leads the band STARK with Jonesy on guitar, Lizzy Bogart on back-up vocals and Greg Schiff on drums and leaves you asking "Did she just say...?". This is NOT whimpy chick crap!
STARK is a powerful, original, alternative indie rock group based in New York City. STARK began in June 2003, with shows in NYC clubs like Continental, Meow Mix, CBGB's, Arlene Grocery, Don Hill's, and Piano's.
Lani Ford writes honest, passionate lyrics and sings with a raw, soulful voice. The arrangements are sparse and dirty with focus on simplicity and purpose. STARK has been compared to The Pretenders, Concrete Blonde, Garbage, Marianne Faithfull, PJ Harvey, Bonnie Raitt, Ray Charles???? (we have no piano), Nirvana, Hole, The Breeders, Janis Joplin, Joan Osbourne, Patti Smith, Nancy Sinatra, 10,000 Maniacs, Melissa Ethridge, Loretta Lynn, Shania Twain, Liz Phair (the early stuff), Sheryl Crow and Alanis Morrisette...except kinda country, blues, latin, and Native American--with a nice smile and a BAD attitude! Whatever, we just think it's cool rock and roll that tells it straight up and IN YOUR FACE!
From the March, 2004 issue of "New York Waste" magazine:
" The bands, my God, the bands! It was another spectacular line up of music, so much so that each act was a different kind of orgasm...STARK, fronted by the tremendous Lani Ford, was a wet and down deep, dirty-sweet sound experience."
-The Mighty Afrodite, regarding the God's Love We Deliver benefit at The Pussycat Lounge in NYC on February 14, 2004
On "THE CURSE", Dylan Grewen played guitar and wrote White Trash R & R Diva, Greg Schiff played drums, Lani Ford played bass, sang and wrote the 12 remaining songs.
