More about Starblind (2):
Known for energetic live shows and talented musicmanship, the trio created a slight buzz in the local area. This lineup lasted until a split in 2007 due to differences. In January 2008 Starblind reformed as the original three, but soon changed lineup as Hesi moved to Hull for university, and Jack Logan joined, bringing a much more technical style to the drums.
During 2008 Starblind honed their skills on writing original material, playing a string of gigs that climaxed with a TV appearance in December of that year, where all six originals were previewed for the first time to a live audience. From December to February '09 the first EP was recorded (between Room3Recording in Sunderland and Leeds Metropolitan university studios) and released, with only 10 physical copies of the original mix - the online release reached a wider audience. The original EP was self produced, and is being remixed for a second release with more knowledge about production gained from the music courses that all members study.
Starblind evolved to a four piece as an old school friend of Jamie and Chris, James Armstrong, joined as synth / keyboard player. 2009 saw many more gigs for Starblind and in venues that increased with size and audience attendance - O2 Academy Starblind performed to a packed room.
