Folkstar released their debut album Emotional Bootcamp in February 2012. Produced independently on Karmic Fury Records, this 10-track debut album is folk-rock at its essence, with dips into mellow ambiance as well as surges into heavier rock. Formed in 2011 in Wilmington, NC by Kim Dicso and Sue Cag, Folkstar is a fusion of Kim’s acoustic folk songwriting and Sue’s rock and blues flavor. With thought-provoking lyrics and fiery guitar licks, they produce music with raw emotion and energy.
The songs on Folkstar's debut CD range from the catchy radio-friendly “Twilight”; hard rockin “Temptation”; singer-songwriter “Cards and Letters”; lyrically folky “Hurried to Leave”; upbeat triumphant “After All”; personal and political “Beggar’s Plea”; new alt-country “Gone”; graceful pop “Reign Falls”; to the more electronically sonic “Hug Me Up” and “Everything You Need”. There’s definitely something for everyone.
Folkstar decided to go a little old school with the physical CD - purchase a quality physical CD and receive a fancy 6-panel CD eco-wallet with photos of Folkstar and the authentic lyrics to all of the songs on the CD!!
