You know you’re doing something right when you get banned from Instagram for flashing your bits. Meet Starsha Lee in the Music Box!
Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable
Cesar A Cruz
Originally from Portugal, we’ve seen her band members before in the Music Box playing for Queen Adreena (fronted by Katie Jane Garside), and the guitarist Crispin Gray seems to have a talent for finding lead singers that will shock and outrage.
Starsha though (real name Sofia Martins Gray) is in charge of her own projects in the art world which are just as outrageous as the singing.
A great part of these exhibits are shows of double exposure Polaroid Photos and 35mm film, that can be viewed on the Sofia Martins Gray official website and more on the Starsha Lee website (ok they’re slow-loading Wix websites but one day she might come over to WordPress)!
We’ve got three videos of the band showcasing their talents (though one should definetely be played on a mobile phone) and we’ll go from the slightly outrageous down to the complete showstoppers.
‘PostModern’ is one of Starsha Lee’s latest videos which brings her love of polaroids into conjunction with a promotional video. Be amazed in how the corner of a room can hold you in suspense and hold your gaze for so long!
2) Starsha Lee 360 is the strange title for this next video, and it was recorded live at ‘Flaxton Pooch‘ and takes it’s name from the 360° photography used to create it.
This is the video that should be viewed on a mobile phone to see it properly, as the 360° photography is really slow to load on a PC or laptop.
Be aware that the photography is NOT used to view up-skirts or down-blouses, so anyone trying to view these aspects will be disappointed!
3) Starsha Lee Live at the New Cross Inn
This final video then is of the full live performance given by Starsha at the New Cross Inn in South East London, complete with a Katie Jane Garside lookalike in the off-stage front mosh-pit, and contains all of the wardrobe malfunctions that go to make up the full Starsha Lee experience.
We look forward to seeing Starsha and the band live when they next play locally to Nottingham, and the first round will be courtesy of Midlands Maidens!
