Tenspoke Indies Week: Starlighter
"Starlighter" was a band name we were thinking about using before we had Tenspoke. I had my first child on the way and thought that Starlighter was something beautiful and pure like a child, and when Josh came up with the initial lick you hear, I thought of that word in relation to how I was feeling at the time and associated it with the music. So, the song immediately had a direction. We had a couple of acoustic sessions at Josh's house and Richie came up with a lot of melodies you hear and I came up with the chords behind them. I have to admit, I did get very emotional on the words for this one. It's the most honest I've ever felt writing.... I know it's a cliché, but the lyrics literally poured out.
You don't have to wait until March to get a taste of what Tenspoke Indie have to offer, they're hitting the road next month. You can grab the tour dates and preview some of the tracks from 'Blinded By The Sound' - right here!
