Stargazey were an original duo playing music to nourish the soul…..then there were four!Colette DeGiovanni’s unique and utterly gorgeous vocal style, combines with Davey Dodds’ energy and Celtic rhythms, to produce a soundtrack drawn from the roots and bones of Cornwall.They are now joined by Steve Winchester on Percussion,vocals,guitar and Mark Clements on bass and vocals.Davey invited Steve to join the band after having a jam on Collie’s birthday shindig and discovering he was a dab hand with a bodhrán and he suggested bringing in Mark to bring his extraordinary musicianship to the mix and to help Stargazey produce their magical sounds live and in the studio.
All four are formidable songwriters. Collie’s songs are intensely spiritual and atmospheric She creates beautiful immersive environments for the ears to enhabit with experimental creative production and vocals.
Davey’s classic, ‘The Magpie’ was covered by The Unthanks and used on The Detectorists on BBC2 – it was even played on The Proms and Jools Holland last year!A couple of Daveys tracks are curently being used in West End Musicals at the moment.
Steve was signed to EMI as a composer when he was commisioned to write music for Calton Tv,Rick Stein on fishing,The Parishes of Polperro and Living on a prayer.And released a beautiful album inspired by Cornwall ‘Wildmoor’ which bought him a place in the heart of the stargazers who’s music is fed by the energy and landscapes of this beautiful county.
Mark creates lush soundscapes at home in his studio ranging from folk rock to trance when he’s not world touring, engineering sound for the stars!He’s worked with some top musicians inluding,Level 42,Dave Stewart,Shirley Bassey and Kylie Minogue.
Stargazey’s music is Celtic,folky, pagan, life affirming, tribal,psychedelic, nature loving, honest and from the heart.They have individual and contrasting styles which fuse to create a striking sound with a distinctive character. All are strong live performers,with lots of gigging experience under the belts and have developed a strong ability to connect and inspire an audience, bringing a great vibe to any event.
