I can't remember how I came to know about Starsailor - I don't really listen to the radio, and I rarely watch the music shows on pay tv - but somewhere along the line, I listened to some of their music and thought they weren't bad at all. I've bought two of their albums and both are pretty darn good - so wherever it was that I first heard them, I'm have no complaints.
The band is made up of James Walsh (vocals and guitar), James Stelfox (bass), Barry Westhead (keyboards) and Ben Byrne (drums). Apparently the lads are pretty big in their homeland (UK). They remind me a little of bands such as Keane and Snow Patrol if I'm looking for a comparative yardstick. Outside of England, I'm not sure how the lads have fared, but I certainly wouldn't be betting against them becoming a success story elsewhere.
The first song I've chosen today, "Silence Is Easy," has been taken from their 2003 CD, "Silence Is Easy," and the second, "I Don't Know," appears on the band's 2005 CD, "On The Outside."
