Startisan Startisan formed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana as a musical melting pot. Combining members from four of the most successful original bands in the state, they have become a fine-tuned Frankenstein of sonic ingenuity. Thoughtful, poetic lyrics are interwoven with sweeping guitar lines and aggressive percussion forming a compelling fusion of heart, soul and honesty (a la the singer/songwriter genre) with the force and power of a full-on rock band. The band's immersive, infectious sound combined with an energetic and constantly evolving live performance makes Startisan a true marvel worthy of attention.

We have had the honor of sharing the stage with the following artists: Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Gavin DeGraw, Switchfoot, Better Than Ezra, One Republic, 12 Stones, Ryan Cabrera, Thriving Ivory, Lit, Eve 6, Reel Big Fish, Teddy Geiger, Josh Kelley, Good Charlotte, Metro Station, David Cook, Colbie Caillat, Puddle Of Mudd.
