Starla’s destiny has always been to create songs. Her parents couldn’t afford to give her piano lessons but fortunately her grandmother owned a piano so when she was just 8 years old all the other kids would be playing outside and Starla would be inside figuring out songs on that magic piano. 

Now an accomplished songwriter, Starla has quite a large roster of original songs that she wrote, arranged and recorded. 

One can find quite a diverse menu of genres, tempos and rhythms in Starla's music. Her songs include hard rocking, alternative, psychedelic, jazzy, new age, bluesy, reggae and Latin. The lyrics are always passionate and often reflect on issues such as injustice, poverty, abuse, betrayal, depression and suicide. Words that shout out!! But she also writes about positive feelings like believing in the magic that’s you, finding your dreams, finding comfort, tranquility and true love. 

Starla is proud to be one of the very few Native American female songwriters in this country.  Starla is her music.
