Starpainter is a folk rock band from Lethbridge, Alberta. Bury Me By My Family is the culmination of several years spent writing and performing together across western Canada. The band exists in the neatly carved out spaces between rock and country and pop. They wear their influences on their sleeves, showcasing strong songwriting and an affinity for gently psychedelic alt-country tones. Bury Me By My Family was recorded at Moose Farm Studio, out in the country north of Edmonton, AB. The space contributed to the sound of their debut record — a familial and rural vibe can be felt throughout this set of songs. On Bury Me By My Family, they have constructed a narrative of beauty, love, fear, and loss without seeming either too sweet or too sorrowful. The songs are steeped in the tradition of prairie-born artistry with a pop sensibility that defies their youth. What it all comes down to is a carefully curated collection of fine songs that set Starpainter up for regular rotation for years to come.
