Hearing Stars Playlist

“Stars” usually conjure thoughts of celebrities or Pop icons. It’s terminology fitting for that line of thinking, but it misses the point. The musicians and artists we feature each week on our show are reaching for the stars, not necessarily with trying to become famous, but rather creating music that truly shines.

When you think of 5 Star Music, what comes to mind? For us, we have tracks that are off the beaten path from known and unknown acts, but are Top Shelf music all the same. Our theme this week is “Hearing Stars” and our menu playlist features excellent selections in several genres. Some of the artists are more familiar than others, but all are exceedingly excellent. Enjoy!
