STAR BAILEY

STAR BAILEY- VOCALS, SAX AND PERCUSSION

Star has been singing and dancing since she can remember. She sang in and arranged music for two collegiate a capella groups, the Dodecaphonics and Decibelles while studying at Dartmouth. She was a professional dancer, singer and actress in NYC for ten years until she gave it up to pursue chiropractic in the Los Angeles area. Currently a practicing chiropractor, Star lives on a farm in San Marcos with a bevy of goats, dogs, cats and a horse, living out her childhood dream with music, animals,dancing and healing, even having “Blissful Goat Yoga” events at her place. A few years ago Star returned to singing and playing the saxophone in a local band called “No Country for Old Men” and is thrilled to be teaming up with Mike in this newly formed mellow acoustic duo, California Gold. Star’s favorite compliments over the years: “Listening to you sing just makes me want to curl up in your arms”, and “I feel like I’m being healed just by listening to your voice.”
