about

With strong vocals, passionate fiddle, and finely written vignettes, SeaStar’s “Home” is a journey of the heart. Born of Celtic and folk roots, this debut release is a colour palette of calm seas, stormy nights, and the occasional break of sunlight.

After 3 successful years of playing in the Pacific Northwest, SeaStar raised the funds to record their first studio album at Paradise Sound in Index, WA. The project was funded by 72 fans and friends who believed in these fine performers and their music.

Seastar is a blend of both the old and the new, the tranquil and passionate, the dramatic and the playful. It is a band that takes its music seriously, but has the good humor to not take itself too seriously. They are equal parts storyteller and muse, weaving a tapestry of poetry and music while leaving enough breathing room for the audience to dream and contemplate. Their love of musical storytelling is only surpassed by their desire to share it with others. No two shows are alike, just as no two songs are alike, just as no two people are alike.

SeaStar is Fae Wiedenhoeft, Captain Chambers, Michael Falcone. & Kelly Blanchard.

Track Name: Bluebird
01. Bluebird - Words and Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

bluebird fly
set me free and let me glide
take me home, this place I’ve known is overgrown
settle storms and let me roam

bluebird fly
chase the wind and the cold goodbye
the winter's breath, the raven's nest and fallen trees
shade my soul and chill my dreams

it hasn't rained in so long
and I’m wrapped in autumn leaves and winter's song
spring me, or spring me free
carry me to colourful mystery

bluebird fly
kiss my sorrows a sweet goodbye
change this hurt inside and let me lie where flowers grow
sing me songs and truths I know

bluebird fly
take me where my old self hides
the world's a blaze with hate and rage, it's sure to fall
my eyes feel old and my shoulders small

it hasn't rained in so long
and I’m wrapped in autumn leaves and winter's song
spring me, or spring me free
carry me to colourful mystery
Track Name: True
03. True - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

You were sitting in the bar and in your eyes were the stars
that my little boar sailed its way to.
And your smile was a jar with little hopes and little jokes
buzzing like the fireflies in June do.
And I gently took your hand in the hopes you'd understand
that this was something strong I was drawn to
And you came away with me and got down on bended knee
And you told me that your heart was true, that your love was true.

Many months and little dreams with Blake and Whitman at the seams
Unfolding was a story that I once knew
Of a girl who ran around chasing, oh, that dark horse down
Tears would fall like a candle burn through
And at times she'd let him run saying go on have your fun
Soon you'll be home asking to forgive you
My world a grain of sand, you held my innocence in your hand
but there's only so much I can go through. Oh, my love was true

I saw him the other day. 10 years had slipped away
And he told me I was lookin' so fine
He said," you haven't changed a hair." 'Nor have you.' I sat and stared
In the eyes that I loved beyond time
"Look I'm sorry for the past, you understand we couldn't last.
But you were something I should have valued."
And I smiled and looked away saying 'Hey, that's okay.
But I hope in the end she was true.' That her love was true
Track Name: Broken
04. Broken - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

Step forward and know... You are not broken
You have been on your own for far too long
Step forward and know the night won’t last forever
Beyond that door is a day waiting to bloom

Step forward and know that new skin sometimes hurts
A change is coming and your blood is strong
Step forward and know the elders will guide you
Through stars and sea, a voice will come to you and sing

I am whole. I'm the soul of all before me
I am whole and not alone with all around me
I am whole. I am strong. I can face what’s ahead of me
If I surrender control… I can be free

Step forward and know
You are not broken.
Track Name: Sparrow
05. Sparrow - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

Who stole your song, little sparrow, little one?
Who charmed the sweet, sweet tune that you used to sing?
Who stole your song, little sparrow, little one?
For without your song the winter winds have begun

The leaves glide on the stream, little sparrow, little one
With treasures from the tree to give to thee
The sun begins to set little sparrow, little one
For the whisper clouds hush soft and set you to dream

Who stole your wings, little sparrow, little one?
Who keeps you in the trees far, far from your dreams?
Who stole your wings, little sparrow, little one?
For the world is cold and the one you love’s far from thee

You traveled out so far little sparrow, little one
Yet always knew the path that led you back home
Heed the old crow’s laugh little sparrow, little one
For the moon with guide you and the stars will set you free

Who stole your heart little sparrow, little one
Who took that brilliant spark that lived within your eyes
Who stole your heart little sparrow, little one
Even through the snow, the winter flowers still bloom

Here is you song little sparrow, little one
Here are the soft, sweet wings to take you to dreams
Here is your heart little sparrow, little one
For you always had them, make a wish and let them fly
Track Name: Friday Smiles
06. Friday Smiles - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

Afternoons and summer fleeting
Mossy trees and photo taking
Down to the rocks to hear the sea’s hello
Catching clouds and shadow stories
Sipping tea, watching harbour glories
We caught a boat beyond the blue, blue bridge
And the seasons changed
And the rains came in
We walked through the cemetery
To the top of the world to see the city dressed in fog
My heart on a string and my hope dangling
You made that world go away
A table for two and our Friday smiles.

Alleyways and trinket finding
Sharing sweets and pumpkin carving
We danced through the park dressed in autumn leaves
Dallas Road and puppies playing
Skipping stones, watercolour painting
We caught the sky ablaze in pink and gold
Spring taking wing and my dreams collapsing
You stole me from myself
We drift in the water in a kayak built for twoNights of drinking and blossoms snowing
We found wisdom in the neon city
Down the street with a View and our Friday smiles.

313 across from my dwelling
That’s how our friendship began
A little corner shop and a common thread
You saved me some days when I got carried away
I guess that’s what good friends do
A table for two and our Friday smiles.

La la la la etc.
Track Name: Moon Jubilee
07 Moon Jubilee - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

the light it holds tight at the end of the night
the shadows they dance with the flame
the streets full of haze as we trip the soul maze
shedding worries and even our names.
the stars so alive as the moon pulls the tides
it's cold, but the water is free
our legs twist and twirl at the edge of the world
in the dance of the moon jubilee

the laughter of trees through the forest's cool breeze
the place where old wisdom sings
the oak and the green and the dawn's broken dream
shyly curtsey to a nightingale’s wing
the drums do begin as the clouds filter in
the stars planting dreams in the sea
the white swirling waves wake old Neptune's brigades
in the dance of the moon jubilee

we could find such pleasure here
with the map in the lines of our palms
to the songs of the seas and the trees
our very breath joins hands with the fog

the rocks and the shore and the soul's open door
make way for this new virgin start
the waltz of the sky and the wonders on high
make the world forget hatred and doubt
with a sigh and a wink that old moon starts to sink
we fly with the night's mystery
we watch dreams unfurl at the edge of the world
in the dance of the moon jubilee
Track Name: Stone Roses
08. Stone Roses - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

Stone roses don’t bloom at all
The love you gave me
Bread crumbs to a seagull
How I tried to love you
My heart was so true
But stone roses never ever bloom

Perfect garden dipped in colours light
Birds are singing, streams are bubbling bright
How you were a hunter
A shot rang through the night
The arrow hit stone roses
No blood, no thorns, no fight

Stone roses don’t bloom at all
The love you gave me
Bread crumbs to a seagull
How I tried to love you
My heart was so true
But stone roses never ever bloom
Track Name: Carry Me
09. Carry Me - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

Carry me to the summers of our days
Carry me to the places we love to play
Carry me to the mountains that we’ll climb
To see the world together in our time

Carry me to the wonders of the stars
Carry me through the storms that shake our hearts
Carry me when I don’t know which way to go
For in your arms is the home I’ve come to know.

For we’ve got Love
Love to carry us through
We’ve go Love we do
Love. I do, I do love you

Carry me like the tides hold the sea
Carry me through the times we don’t agree
Carry me you’re my one and true best friend
For everyday is a gift I get again.

Carry me to the sunsets of our days
Carry me when our bodies are old and gray
Carry me when my teeth are gone from my smile
Just say you’ll stay and carry me for awhile.

For we’ve got Love
Love to carry us through
We’ve go Love we do
Love. I do, I do, I do I do
I do, I will. Carry you.
Track Name: Lilac
11. Lilac - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

on a rain swept morning down past the old bridge
I walked to the water where my memories lived
it sang the old songs that my younger days knew
and I saw old reflections of summer trees and you

bicycle rides laughter and chess
silly secrets and backyard picnics
we created new worlds out of clouds dressed as clowns
as we made our way round the town we were bound

Chorus:
and I think of the choice that we had to make
how the pain hurt so long I thought i would break
you said you thought that you'd hold me back
when forward with you was like rain on lilacs

I haven't been back to the town where we met
the thought crossed my mind though I feared the regret
to hear echoes of laughter and loving so sweet
where we spent summer months kissing soft with bare feet

do you think of the what ifs if i'd only stayed
would we be happy together or tired and frayed
would i still be that beauty that you'd use to see
when our days were so simple with soft grass and tall trees

Chorus

so many years gone I'm happy and wed
at times the thoughts of you are hard to forget
I wonder if you are still sailing the sky
like the bird that you were, un-caged and free fly

at daybreak, it's true the time that I'd say
when the lilacs are sweet from the dew of the day
I swear that i catch the scent of your skin
when the summer was lush and we walked hand in hand

Chorus

Like rain on Lilacs
You thought that you would hold me back
when forward with you was like rain on lilacs
Track Name: Home
12. Home - Words & Music by Fae Wiedenhoeft

The summer takes a sigh

The stars and moon are sitting high

And I’m not willing to say goodbye

For this is my home



Storms settled in too long

I held up your world, my shoulders strong

And even without you, I know I belonged

For this is my home



The wind is in the night

It speaks of a heart-spun flight

And it’s far beyond our talks of wrong and right

For I know I am home



Cedars beckon me near

The little birds sing ‘have no fear’

For even that great big sky, it sheds a tear

For you’ve found your home



My hopes live on your shores and your sand

And I am far beyond trying to understand

And sometimes love doesn’t walk hand in hand

But I know I am home



The wind is in the night

It speaks of a heart-spun flight

And it’s far beyond our talks of wrong and right

For I know I am home



I’m home.
