Our next show is Friday, August 14th at 10pm at The Winery at St. George!!! 


I'm really excited that next week we are going to be playing one of my favorite places to make music up in Westchester County, NY!
We'll be playing at the Winery at St. George in Mohegan Lake on Route 6.
The Winery is a renovated stone church and the ambiance is very cool. It's gothic and classy. The stage is nice and so is the sound!

About "Solo"

This is an album I recorded at the end of my nine years living in Northern California. I had gone through my cycle of gigging relentlessly with my touring band, had recorded "Rising" in 1995 which was never released (until this year), and had recorded and released "Dragon's Lair" in 1999 on my newly formed label, RA Records.
A few years later, with more new songs in my repertoire, my friend and fellow musician, Alan Watt, said to me," we need to get all those new songs down on a recording." We recorded this at his house and it's just me, my guitar and voice, all those then new songs, and some didgereedoo and light percussion.
After this cd was duplicated, I began traveling the southwest of America, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and all over California and then I moved to NYC to keep living my dream.
I think of this as a songwriter's cd.
Here you will find the original version of "The Ocean".
I hope you'll order it and enjoy!











all my very best to you,

Jessica Star

Preorders are released! 

I just mailed out and emailed out all the preorders of RISING; From The Vault!!! Soon the album will be available to the rest of world!!
I had so much fun filling in the info on each song when I added it to my website music store. With each description, I went back in time in my mind to when I wrote the song and it brought back alot of memories of the people and the situations that were happening at the time. Those were good times! When you're living through those moments, it seems like life will always be that way but as we all figure out, the only constant in life is change. I love that I'm releasing this very first album of mine at this point in my life. It's very good to remember what came before. This album was recorded twenty years ago! Doesn't that seem like a long time? I know, it's kind of mind boggling but it seems like not that long ago really. I've had an entire life time in between. I hope that many people will get to enjoy this album for it is filled with love and alot of legendary talent. You can listen to the tracks right on my website.

Here's to transition,

I will be uncaging a new cd of all original music from my first album "Rising" that has never been released to the public until now but with a new title "RISING; From The Vault" and is due out this spring.
I am accepting presale orders.
This album is a digital download only. 
If you preorder now it's $15,

-You will receive a download of the music ahead of everyone else-
 
About the album:
This was my first album. It was recorded at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, where I worked with producer and legendary engineer, Bob Matthews (The Grateful Dead), and the late arranger, John Kahn (bassist of The Jerry Garcia Band). The musicians on this session include Mario Cippolina on bass (Huey Lewis and The News), Donny Baldwin on drums (Jefferson Starship), Pete Sears on the keyboard (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Starship, Moon Alice), Ho Young (The John Kahn Band), and an orchestra of strings and horns.
This album was recorded in 1995 and this is the first time it will be released which is why it is aptly named "RISING; From The Vault"
This is a beautiful album of ten of my original songs with so much talent and quality in it. 
John Kahn, the late arranger, after listening to the master mix with the producer, Bob Matthews, said that he could die happily knowing that he used everything he'd ever learned in his life as an arranger on this album. He died the next day. This album was played at his wake in Marin County, California which was a big gathering of the Grateful Dead Family including Maria Muldair, and the Jerry Garcia back up singers.

Rising; From the Vault 

I'm very excited to let you know that I'll be releasing my album "Rising; From the Vault" soon! This was my very first studio album and it is beautiful. I recorded it with Bob Matthews who produced and engineered it. He was the engineer and producer for the Grateful Dead. John Kahn arranged it. He was Jerry Garcia's bassist in the Jerry Garcia Band. The musicians playing on it are legends and amazing. I'm excited to be able to bring this piece of musical work to you! It's all my original songs and was recorded at Fantasy Studios in Berkely, CA.

Happy New Year! 

Fare well 2014!
What a year! It was the year we made Mystical Creature, played a bunch of Faerie Festivals as well as other venues and at the end of August, I made some very serious changes. I am currently in one of the most intense times of my life but what makes a diamond? A lot of things right? Pressure is the thing I'm talking about. Under pressure we make decisions that show ourselves and other what we are made of. I choose to stick to the truth. When you tell the truth, you only have to remember the truth. Truth is the sharpest blade. 
I am so grateful to all of my friends and fans who have helped me at this time! Because of you, my son and I had a really good holiday and I was able to buy him some presents! For any of you who actually know me, you know that I don't stay down too long. I gather depth and refine myself and then rise in a new and more appropriate form. I liken this phase to that of a Phoenix. I believe in listening to your heart. Your heart is your guide and will always guide you in the truest direction. That doesn't mean the easiest path at all! I do believe that if you follow your heart you will end up in the most perfect place. I believe!!!!! 
Mystical Creature and all of my merchandise is a great gift all year around! I could really use the help too;)
Also, WE ARE PLAYING WICKED FAIRE!!!

Bright blessings to you, the reader;)
