***Opened for Big Star with Mike Mills, Brendan Benson and Sondre Lerche at The Levitt Shell on May 15, 2010 and recently started backing local indie icon, Jack Oblivian.*** BIO: If your best friends were in a band, wouldn’t you go see them every chance you got? And if they ended up writing all of your new favorite songs, you’d tell all of your other friends about them, right? So every time your best friends play a show, all of your other best friends are there enjoying it with you. A new family like community is formed, and each show is a reunion that you actually want to attend. This is what it’s like to be a fan of Star & Micey. Joshua Cosby and Geoff Smith have been playing music together since their elementary years growing up in Memphis, TN. Much later Josh and Geoff met Nick Redmond at a local pub and began an appreciation and admiration for each other’s songs. The three troubadours began making music together as Star & Micey, a name they derived from an inspiring homeless couple. Nick introduced the band to his co-workers at the world famous Ardent Studios and they – just like anyone who comes across the band – quickly fell in love and signed Star & Micey to their independent label, Ardent Music. In October of 2009, Star & Micey’s self-titled debut album was released and the band toured the Mid-South, Midwest, and Gulf Coast. Out of necessity, Josh, Geoff and Nick began performing as a three-piece, playing melody instruments with their hands and percussion with their feet. After winning over audiences everywhere they played, the trio returned to Memphis and augmented their lineup. They enlisted multi-talented singer/songwriters Jeremy Stanfill and Adam Woodard to play drums and accordion respectively, while adding the incredible Memphis Symphony Orchestra violinist, Jessie Munson.

It was a dark night, like many before it in Memphis, Tennessee. Joshua Andrew Cosby walked home from rehearsal with his guitar, case-less, slung over his back. A local homeless man flagged him down, not for money but for a story. He explained to Cosby how he had written a song about... Read More →
