Nashville band to perform at Washburn

Press Release

Starlume, a band from Nashville, Tenn., will perform live at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 27, in the Washburn Room, Memorial Union, Washburn University campus. The concert is open to the public and free of charge.

Starlume is an all-original rock/alternative quartet. After Landon Rose left his job in Branson, Mo. performing as a lead actor in off-Broadway shows, he joined his long-time friend and drummer, Corey Eggleston, in Nashville in the fall of 2007.

The following year, Starlume was complete with the addition of guitarist Nate Woodall, and bassist Isaac Wriston.

After landing the song “So Please” from their Get Found CD on the CW’s “One Tree Hill” and receiving airplay on more than 250 college and independent radio stations with their Lost in War CD, the team they teamed with producer Jon King and mix veteran Craig Alvin for their latest self-titled CD.

Drawing from influences spanning four decades of music, they crafted a set of songs that highlight their love of melody. With a sound so accessible and intriguing, it’s no wonder that they have had music licensed for use on several TV networks, including MTV, E!, and VH1.

Filled with tastefully epic drums, throwback bass lines, smooth vocals, and contagious melodies, their latest self-titled EP is proof Starlume strives to make music that has an impact for years to come.

Campus Activities Board is sponsoring the concert. For more information, contact CAB at (785)670-1222.
