Starseed brings you an infusion of elements from across the musical spectrum. Hip-hop beats coalescing with ambient overtones seek to align you to the space deep within, to bring you to a place both alien and yet somehow familiar and welcoming. Downtempo grooves colored by jazz harmonies call you to take a moment to pause, to reflect, to contemplate, to meditate. Cosmic soundscapes ride along driving rhythms, beckoning you to remember your divinity, to take a look at the bigger picture, and to expand your horizons to perceive a reality of love beyond anything you could possibly imagine. For in truth, reality is indeed both stranger and more amazing than fiction: and The Truth is Love, and Love is The All, and The All is Vibration.
Dayne Herndon (Starseed) is a prolific 23-year-old electronic music producer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas, currently based in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts. Since the Starseed project began in 2014, he has put out 5 albums as an independent artist in addition to a number of singles, and is currently in the process of putting out a sixth release entitled “Paradisio”. He has performed at a wide variety of venues and festivals around the world, including GeoParadise Tribal Gathering in Panama and Mystery Trance Festival in Elyspurg, PA, and will be a featured artist at this year’s MindBodySpirit Festival in Sydney, Australia and Astral Harvest in Alberta, Canada, to name a few. He has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with renowned artists such as Govinda, Jade Cicada, Jackson Whalan, and many others, and his music has been featured on major music blogs such as Jamsphere (50,000+ followers on Facebook, 320,000+ followers on Twitter), in popular press such as The Berkshire View (he is on the cover of the February 2017 edition as the month’s primary feature), and on radio shows such as The Greylock Glass’s INDIEcent Exposure. As his style and sound has developed and become more refined over the years, so too have his live performances, which now incorporate live guitar work (much of it improvised) and vocals.
His intention with the Starseed project involves receiving and transmitting consciousness-expanding and soul-stirring vibrations in order to stimulate, activate, and align the listener on all levels–the physical, the mental, the emotional, the spiritual, the astral, the etheric–for the sake of attuning the listener to his or her unlimited eternal nature. He is always seeking to push the boundaries of what is possible within a musical context, to honor the sacredness of play and creative self-expression, and to pay homage to the timeless, infinite, and multidimensional dance of creation.
