about

Stars and Sirens hailing from Charlottesville, Virginia. They are an acoustic duo composed of Ryan Daniel and Emily Julia. As they make music that has no specific attachment to time or season, their poetic rhymes and genuine meaning express truth. Their melodic guitar lines and male-female harmonies produce a classic yet original sound. While Ryan’s hands hold heavy roots in southern rock and blues, Emily's hold dearly to acoustic and folk influences. They have created a blended genre for many to enjoy. Furthermore, with their seasoned backgrounds in writing and poetry, they challenge themselves by writing clever original songs that discuss many ideas, including sensitive issues that others ignore. They strive to appeal to a wide array of audiences without sacrificing the integrity of the songs. Running parallel with the recording and production side of the house, Mark LaFountain of Mind Veneration adds a creative remix to the songs, achieving even higher levels of inspiration.

Luminous is an honest representation of real life struggle as well as a means to overcome. Enjoy! :)

Track Name: Bit of Burden
Bit of Burden
©2015 Stars and Sirens Music
Lyrics by E. Julia / R. Daniel

A carousel around a winding bay
Music calls the evening in the distance
Sand between the toes draws an arrow of innocence

In a fragile heart rides an eager fear
She trusts the hand that guides her near
A look inside the eye, tied to the wind
And the world keeps on riding around…riding

You curse the day when you’re
Looking for change, know when
You can’t speed up the ride
Digging for reason
Leave your comfort
Lose yourself, it’ll be alright

A heavy weight above your lonely shoulders
And an anchor tied around the waist
She’d rather shed the bit of burden
Draped around, laced within

In a fragile heart rides an eager fear
She trusts the hand that guides her near
A look inside the eye, tied to the wind
And the world keeps riding around…
Riding…
Track Name: The Quiet Needle
Stars and Sirens
“The Quiet Needle”
©2015 Stars and Sirens Music

Feel unsafe in your own skin
Your teeth are chattering
The door was locked for many years
Then you let him in
Was it greed, or curiosity?
It’s a heavy thought to carry

Falling back on brighter days
You never slept alone
Winter found a hiding place
The questions started slow
Can’t deny the animosity
Was the needle held to fool?
Unraveling the wool

Conversations tread on silent water
And all you want is to feel his warming hands
The quiet is haunting
OOO OOO OOO
The quiet is haunting

Feel unsafe in your own skin
Your teeth are chattering
The door was locked for many years
Then you let him in
Was it grief, or curiosity?
It’s a heavy weight to carry

Conversations tread on silent water
And all you want is to feel his warming hands
Conversations tread on silent water
And all you want is to feel his warming hands
The quiet is haunting
OOO OOO OOO

The quiet is haunting
OOO OOO OOO
The quiet is haunting
Till the water breaks
Track Name: Safe and Sound (the mind veneration mix)
Stars & Sirens
“Safe and Sound”
©2015 Stars and Sirens Music
 
V1           No peace of mind is outspoken
                Where the words rattle off like a pointed gun to their heads
                A love that went wrong pulled the trigger
                Hate takes the place of a weathered heart
                And it’s a fight that you can’t win
 
CH          Lay me down
                We’re two jaded lovers
                With only each other
                For now
 
                Lay me down
                Tied in the moment
                While the wind gentle whispers
                Hide ‘till a safe word is found
 
V2           The lock on the room was stolen
                The covers were hiding her face, still not her shame
                A cry in the night, when unnoticed
                Will lead you to think when the morning comes
                It was all just a game in your head
 
CHORUS
 
BR           I took off running
                And I took off too
                Left our belongings
                But saved all the clues
                Turning out backs on the ones
                Who damaged our truth

CHORUS
