Stars Turn Me On is an indie rock band formed by Clementine, drummer of Zeppelin powerhouse Zepparella, and guitarist Justin Caucutt.
Stars performs as both a full rock band, and as an acoustic duo. The songs are lyrically rich and musically draw on classic influences from rock, country and blues genres, as well as modern electronica and R&B. Clementine fronts the band as singer, and often plays the drum parts on the recordings, or creates the beats electronically.
On stage, she has been compared to Alison Mosshart of the Kills and Jim Morrison, an early love. Performing an acoustic duo, the storytelling of the songs pops out and carries the audience away. Performing with a full band, Clementine’s frontperson persona is completely arresting. Bassist and lap steel player Judah Collins has become an integral part of the project.
The band released the 11-song debut GOLDRUSH in 2012, and has been performing in San Francisco at venues such as Bottom of the Hill and Slims.
