Star & Micey: Star & Micey

Star & Micey are a Memphis band that sound like vintage folk soul group of the early Seventies. Geoff Smith and Joshua Cosby are childhood friends and when Josh ran into Nick Redmond on a songwriters night they decided to start a band. They took their name for their band from a change meeting between Josh and a homeless guy named Star who sung Josh songs about Star's ex-wife, Micey.

Their self-titled debut is a sad record that sounds cheerful. They laid down the tracks at Ardent Studios, a facility renowned for great recordings by Isaac Hayes, The White Stripes and Led Zeppelin. Inviting a host of guests to play along with them Cosby sings about the women who have let him down over the years. With Luther Dickinson (The Black Crowes, North Mississippi Allstars) and Jody Stephens (Big Star) lending a hand they can reach for the stars. They have the melodies and the lyrics - all they need is a big break.

Star & Micey:
Joshua Cosby: guitar, lead vocals
