Blending the rawness of the human experience with a playfulness and innocence, Banded Starling engages its listeners with their authenticity. The award-nominated duo developed their alternative folk-pop sound after over 10 years of playing together in bands throughout New England. 

Banded Starling creates introspective and multifaceted music described by Divide and Conquer as "elegantly shaped and well crafted folk" with an alternative twist. They were nominated for Band of the Year in the New England Music Awards 2018. They are slated to release their debut studio album November 2018.
