Bluegrass & Roots Music,
The Starlight Darlins are a four-piece band of singer-songwriters Emily Johnson-Erday (she/her), Lauren Oxford (she/her), Gray Buchanan (they/them), and Siena Christie (they/she) who formed at Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, in September 2022. Each of the members is an acclaimed songwriter in their own right: Siena is a two-time Kerrville New Folk finalist (2022 and 2023), Emily has won the Walnut Valley Festival's New Song first-place award multiple times, Lauren has been a musical guest of honor at numerous filk (sci-fi folk music) conventions, and Gray is an accomplished fiddler and member of regularly-performing bluegrass band The Hillbilly Biscuits. All four Darlins share songwriting duties equally, which yields an emotional gravitas and an ever-shifting power to their performances. At the same time, however, they are fully grounded by the sound they've cultivated and nurtured together: one of sibling-like four-part harmonies carried on the wings of old-time instrumentation, with songs that are deeply rooted in the folk tradition even as they blur those same boundaries and push them into new directions emotionally and musically.
Sorry, we don't currently know of any upcoming concerts scheduled.
