David Starr and his recent album, “Songs From the Witness Tree,” delivers an exceptional compilation of Rock songs that is extremely reminiscent of the ‘70’s era. Starr is not only the vocalist on this album but he plays all instrumentation will a highly talented style and grace. The energy to under take this project really paid off as this album is swarming with excellent songs. When you hear the song, “Nothing Short,” one can feel his honesty in his voice while the soothing guitar sweetly strums along. Starr also adds a bit of mystifying synth tones to the song, “Night Sky/Wichita,” as the vocals are rootsy and melodic. “Halfway Home” is another great song with guitar, strings, drums, and Starr’s flair for sweet and charming vocals. If you’re a fan of the Eagles or Jackson Browne, then “Songs From the Witness Tree,” is an album you will really enjoy.
