A supergroup featuring four talented singer-songwriters, Low Stars makes unprocessed pop-rock music that sounds enormously catchy and genuine. A modern-day answer to the likes of Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Eagles, Low Stars performed a concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on March 2.

Low Stars includes Chris Seefried, lead singer of the bands Gods Child and Joe 90, who has toured with Rosanne Cash and scored music for the TV shows Six Feet Under and Lost. Another member, Jude, had a terrific song on the soundtrack to City of Angels and released several well-liked albums a few years ago before launching a successful career in television. Jeff Russo led Tonic, which scored major hits with "If You Could Only See" and "You Wanted More." Finally, Dave Gibbs has been a founding member of Gigolo Aunts and a studio vocalist for the likes of Lisa Loeb, Matthew Sweet and Counting Crows.

The band got together almost accidentally, when its members all appeared in a benefit to help the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles. As a group, they were eventually picked up by Starbucks' record label, which is distributing and promoting Low Stars' first album throughout North America.
