Lisa Starr

In one respect, poets are lucky.  Every aspect of the poet’s life – everything the poet sees, hears, feels – every person encountered or remembered – every least or great experience – all of life is potentially grist for the poet’s creative mill.  Lisa Starr’s work exemplifies this usefulness of experience with a candid and emotional directness that makes her work accessible and memorable to her readers.  Consider her short poem “Late August”:

And then there is the way
that summer
tiptoes off one evening
just at dusk;
the fallen apples on the lane
speak of sadness,
leaving you surprised and
cold again
as you remember lovers
who gently turned,
and left

He has been writing and performing for over a decade, and has grown into an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, and a number of other stringed instruments, as well as developing a unique vocal style that leans heavily into old-school soul in the vein of Wilson Pickett and Sam & Dave, balanced with a more sensitive, almost conversational approach.
