Low Stars is a musical project of Dave Gibbs and Chris Seefried, that captures the sound of classic bands like Crosby, Stills, and Nash and The Eagles.

History

Low Stars began when Dave Gibbs was holding his annual benefit for the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund. Chris Seefried was on the bill, as well as Jude, who was added at the last minute. At the time, Gibbs was already playing on another project with Jeff Russo. Afterwards, the group ended up playing and singing on Russo's front porch in Hollywood. When a girl inside heard the music they were playing she commented that she missed that kind of music and the idea for the project was born.

Starbucks Entertainment's attention was caught by the project and they offered to add them to their Hear Music Debut series, which is designed to introduce Starbucks customers to upcoming artists. Hear Music distributes the music via a record label and a XM satellite radio station, which is played in Starbuck's Cafes.

The Low Stars eponymous album was produced by George Drakoulias and released in Starbuck's stores across America. Songs "Child" and "Calling All Friends", the theme song from ABC's What About Brian, were performed live on Last Call with Carson Daly. They also toured nationally to promote the first album, including a performance at Carnegie Hall to celebrate the music of Bruce Springsteen.

Song "Just around The Corner" was featured in Paste magazine and was the featured video from the album.

Currently Chris Seefried and Dave Gibbs are putting the final touches with David Immergluck and Charlie Gillingham of Counting Crows.
