Biography

Tearing up the lost highway from Oxford Mississippi’s Sweet Tea Studios comes the I Can’t Wait EP, the sophomore offering from Memphis’s folk pop trio, Star & Micey. Produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Modest Mouse, Buddy Guy) and due for release through the legendary Ardent Music label in October 2012, the new EP captures the band’s raw live spirit while carefully preserving the honesty of a well crafted work of art. Here’s a little about Star & Micey’s somewhat accidental beginnings.

It was a dark night, like many before it in Memphis. Joshua Cosby walked home from rehearsal with his guitar slung over his back. A local homeless man flagged him down, not for money but for a story. The man explained how he had written a song about his ex-wife Micey and there, on that dimly lit street occurred an exchange, two men playing each other songs of heartbreak and the ultimate sacrifice. Upon parting ways, the displaced man revealed his name to be Star. That name became the fixture for one of Memphis’s most inventive bands: Star & Micey. The original duo are listed as two brothers without the same last name, Geoff Smith and Joshua Cosby. It was merely coincidence that the two later met Nick Redmond at a local pub and began a relationship based on music and above all, brotherhood.

Star & Micey’s self-titled debut album, released in October 2009, featured a revolving door of notable musicians that included Luther Dickinson (The Black Crowes, North Mississippi Allstars), Jody Stephens (Big Star) and Rick Steff (Cat Power, Lucero).
