David Starr - Beauty & Ruin

David Starr is embarking on a new adventure with a collection of songs inspired by Of What Was, Nothing Is Left, a novel written by his grandfather in 1972. The album is produced by John Oates. After working with John on his 2017 The Head And Heart EP, David approached him with the idea: what if we gave several of our favorite songwriters a copy of the book and asked them to write for a concept album based on the story? Contributors include John Oates, Jim Lauderdale, and more.
