Darin Starr (piano, guitar and bodybuilding coach by trade) and Denia Kirk (vocals and a 20 year veteran of teaching elementary art) found one another through a shared love of music. They would often collaborate on creative projects, but it was six years before their original music began to flow. Sketch Eclectic was formed, and Search and Recovery would take it’s first breath. Starr recovered lost compositions from memory across the span of 20 years, and Denia began creating poems that would reveal themselves as melodies woven around Darin’s musical arrangements. Their debut is a genre bending pseudo concept album, thematically searching for transformation through pain. Search and Recovery explores mental illness, inevitable change, profound new perspectives, and life after loss ~ with a healthy dose of hope. It’s the soundtrack of the life we leave behind, and the wonder of the life that lies ahead.
