Formed in the Fall of 2001, DARKSTAR is an all original alternative-rock band hailing from Ottawa, ON. The term 'original' rings utterly true for this band - the combination of each members disparate musical styles and backgrounds, creates a sound that is emotionally charged, sonically resonant and decidely unique.
A prominent band in the Ottawa independent music scene, DARKSTAR have spent the last 2 years playing all across the city at venues such as Barrymore's, Zaphod's and Cafe Dekcuf. Most recently the band has released their first pro-quality studio recording, entitled the DarkStar EP.
Musically, DARKSTAR is all over the map, with elements of rock, alternative, funk, soul, trip hop, folky-acoustic, and even punk all finding a place within their music.
