Staerna had a successful start to their career in the fall of 2019, including performing at Världens Fest in Flen, SE, and many packed showcases at Folk At Heart in Örebro, SE. Although their busy schedule was erased by the Corona Virus pandemic, they recorded their first full-length album in the summer of 2020 with the help of bedroom studios, Zoom rehearsals, and phone calls through all hours of the night. This self-titled debut album was produced by the band’s own Hampus Grönberg.
The music of Staerna often displays two songs side by side. As the two voices and two melodies seem to slowly meld into one, so do we see that we can help create a sense of belonging for our listeners and ourselves, no matter our histories.
