Jawn Star has been involved in the entertainment business since 1970 and is best known as Keyboardist/Vocalist for the band PLAYER whose number one hit “Baby Come Back” is known & loved by everyone. He’s performed for audiences worldwide including The President & Vice President of the United States, their families & Albert Einstein Jr. who called Jawn Star, "the Musical Genius”.
The voice of Jawn Star has been likened to all four Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Freddie Mercury, Peter Gabriel, Jeff Lynne & Frank Sinatra, yet it has a unique, sonically pleasing & arousing quality all it’s own. His songs are moving & stimulating, his seemingly effortless mastery of the piano, the perfect compliment to his one-in-a-million voice. He turns a guitar into an orchestra.
Star began playing guitar at the age of 8, did his first professional gig at 10, picked up the piano at 12 (strong kid), & by the time he turned 18, had composed, performed and produced an album of original songs, singing all the parts, playing all the instruments and even designing the cover. He started his full time performing career at age 19 playing at bars and events as a solo act and with groups. Entertaining up to 7 nights a week provided the perfect opportunity for tightening chops & learning how to work a crowd. Star's solid musicianship and dynamic stage presence have endeared him to thousands of audiences worldwide.
Jawn Star recently played piano on the first single, "Go Where You Wanna Go" featuring Jakob Dylan & Jade Castrinos from the Movie & Soundtrack album, "Echo In The Canyon" which also featured Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty, Fiona Apple, Beck, Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Fernando Perdomo and more...
