“In the space between art and persona there is magic. Marya Stark lives there. Drawing from influences as diverse as Classical, Broadway, Indie-Pop, Storytelling and Folk, Marya crafts a sound that is wholly original. As a multi-instrumentalist and multi-media enchantress, she creates the way she breathes; without choice or hesitation. Nothing captures this best than our premiere today for the STARGAZER’s video, thanks to mesmerizing visuals with its fantastical imagery that’s both stunning and almost sublime.
‘Stargazer’ is the first release from Marya Stark’s forthcoming album Sapphire. Produced and Arranged by Joshua Penman, Stargazer is a orchestral-pop piece that moves the listener into spaces of awe, wonder and mystical delight. With Marya’s ecstatic lyricism and lush vocals (in harmony with the inimitable Elijah Ray), Stargazer is a rhapsodic journey of the longing heart who, in courting the muse, becomes the dance of the Northern Lights.
“She opened her lips... and children suddenly became quiet, guests took a deep breath and forgot their names (and everything else outside of the present moment), heartbreak revealed its sweet side, fairies smiled somewhere, and portals opened to celestial realms. I will never forget that first time I heard the music of Marya Stark. She is a divine siren and wise woman, who’s songs spark awakening, love, prayer, peace, magic, myth, dreams, and everything beautiful about human life.”
