With an award winning song, strong vocals, and passionate instrumentation, SeaStar's new record North Winds is drenched in Celtic folklore making it a musical must for the fans of Celtic Folk!
After the successful release of their first studio album, Home, the band wanted to raise the bar musically. Fae Wiedenhoeft, the band’s creator and primary songwriter, honed her skills to weave stories into stronger songs. Two months before the release of North Winds, Fae was awarded first place in the Bob Kotta Songwriting Contest for her song Sailor. At the same time, her song Running was featured on the No Depression website. North Winds continues to get attention from the media! It has been said that Fae Wiedenhoeft and her voice are ".. one of the best kept secrets in the Celtic world."
Recorded on 1/2' tape by Kelly Blanchard at Green Arbor Studios, North Winds swirls10 tracks, from an old traditional piece welcoming the listener to the fire, to stormy seas, stories of Selkies, love burning up, green-eyed waters, toe-tappin’ drinkin; songs, and more! It was mixed by Ron Allen at Four Lumen Studio and mastered by Chris Hanzsek at Hanzsek AV.
