Starshell is a hot young singer/songwriter signed to Universal Music Group, Interscope Records. She was born and raised in Lowell, Mass., just north of Boston. With a French and Brazilian mother and an African American dad, her music has an international appeal based on the melting pot of influences she has acquired through her background.
Starshell is the first female signed by Mary J. Blige’s Matriarch Entertainment, music label and co-signed by one of the most respected and powerful record company executives and label CEO Vincent Herbert of Streamline Records.
Breaking into the music scene fresh out of college as a songwriter Starshell gained recognition as an accomplished songwriter when she co-penned multi platinum selling single by Kanye West called, “Love Lockdown” (2008). She followed this up in 2009 with “I Can See in Color” and “Closer” for Mary J. Blige. The former was featured in the Oscar-nominated film, “Precious,” while the latter is one of numerous highlights on Blige’s last studio album, “Stronger With Each Tear.”
Focusing on her solo career as a singer, Starshell has written and co-produced the majority of the songs on her debut album entitled, “LIBERATION”. This winter Starshell is prepared to release her first smash breakout single called “BIRTHDAY GIRL” through Interscope Records in January 2012.
