"David Starr is an inspired song-writing craftsman with a vocal flare that sits easy in an easy chair or could equally fills the biggest halls or even the best Festival stages I suspect" Rob Ellen The Medicine Show, UK.
“David Starr and guest, Ben Harris, recently performed a house concert at my place (aka "Cove" concerts in Northwest Arkansas). David's voice is mesmerizing and his range of songs took a most appreciative audience from tears to laughter -- a true gift of the ultimate songwriter. Between David and Ben, the musicianship was astounding!” Lori Holyfield, Cove House Concerts, USA
"Impressive sound together with moving, honest lyrics make David Starr's show a must see"
