"SeaStar is a blend of both the old and the new, the tranquil and passionate, the dramatic and playful. They are equal parts storyteller and muse, weaving a tapestry of poetry and music while leaving enough breathing room for the audience to dream and contemplate" (Seattle Night Out)
" An exceptionally strong vocalist..." (San Diego Troubadour)
".. folky, passionate, Celtic-y....you had my heart dancing!" (Index Arts Fest)
"..the voice... I thought I was listening to an angel..." (Yakima Folklife)
SeaStar hails from the rainy town of Seattle.
Since their beginnings in 2007, SeaStar's music has been described as both "timeless" and "authentic". From dusty Americana postcards, to Celtic anthems with hints of bluegrass and old-time, to passionate ballads, and award winning story songs, SeaStar takes their audiences on a musical journey of history and tradition. Fae Wiedenhoeft's (pronounced Wee-den-hauft) powerful vocals carry contagious, original melodies and deliver singable choruses that will keep you singing for hours after their shows. Fae's finely crafted compositions and velvet voice are loved and revered by many across the globe. Her songs tangle truth, whimsy, and the passions of the human heart into a beautiful oasis from the ordinary.
SeaStar's love for musical storytelling is only surpassed by their desire to share it with others. They have played across the US, Canada, Ireland, Turkey, Poland, England, France, and Scotland, sharing the stage with folk legends like Dougie MacLean. Be it a small house concert or a large concert hall, Fae will invite you in, sing you a tale, and make it feel as if she is singing it just to you.
Coming Late Spring 2018
