With starrsucka' as your guide~
explore the beaten net path I have travelled...
and discover more or less about:
ALIDA KINNIE STARR
Finishing up her Canadian tour dates
Kinnie starr returns to Vancouver
for the Scrappy Bitch reunion
on April 1rst @ the Vancouver East Cultural Centre
Unofficial word is that Kinnie is currently
playing music on reserves with warpack(?)--
however, starrsucka's resources are not 100% certain
on names, times, places, or things
One things forsure is that westcoasts lady elvis
has been nominated for a juno award
as "best new artist"
(new?ha!no matter...how cool is that?)
Her latest album Sun Again has received
supportive radioplay and muchmusic airtime
what's next in the chapters?
a thirty-fourth or fifth rotation around the sun?
some sunshine coast?
stay tuned starrsucka's....
Drummin' up the local vibes along with my cohort, kid inc.
Welcome to starrsucka's Kinnie Starr fansite.
Who knows how you got here, but if you don't already know,
Starr is Vancouver's CHUNK-hoppin' lady elvis!
Without YOUR continued support,
karrs like skinnie could still be working at the
Cafe deux Soleil, and not on the stage, or in the studio
ripping it completely out of it's skin.
So check it out ya' all!
Live muzik is the best. C.D's can be played on repeat.
Any time Much Music plays a video, those artists are paid.
Support your fellow artist by visiting Kinnie's site
and request her video, 'nearer'

Check out the tunes while you're there.
For movie goers check out 'Down and Out with the Dolls'
featuring Kinnie as reggie.

End the trip with a talk-rap
about funky brothers by clicking onto:
"People don't seem to take care of their shit,
or take care of their friendships anymore,
or even clean up their dishes."— Kinnie Starr
Her former record label Mercury Records was absorbed by
Island/Def Jam, and ultimately led "Limbs"
and the Handsome Boyz 2 (co-producer John Raham/drums,
Chris Carlson/bass & Rob Chursinoff-
are you still on percussion?)
down the indie path. (a blessing in disguise?)
Kinnie has shared the mic' with the likes of:
Speech, Lamb, Nelly Furtado, Gus Gus, Swollen Members,
Alanis Morrisette & toured with the LILITH FAIR.
The local legendary Scrappy Bitch tour was launched
with cohort bitches, Veda Hille and Oh Susanna!
“My people will sleep for a hundred years
and when they wake up it will be through the eyes of art.”
Kinnie's ancestors are of French, Mohawk,
Irish, Metis and Russian descent.
Music appears to run in the family~
cousin, Lindsay Davis (formerly of the Colorifics),
musically goes by Lily Frost.
Frost's side project, Mimosa, which according to
starrsucka's sources, includes Handsome boy
Raham on the drums. An incestuous bunch hey?
“There is a lot of art coming out of native people
and mixed- blood Indians that is resonating
in popular culture, and I think it is going to continue."
Mapping her experiences through words and rime--
and an intoxicating textured soundscape~
the wordsmith herself would probably tell you-
as sure as she is, she's her own biggest riddle.
Who can predict what's in the stars for starr?
Our taurus bull has been driving one helluva long haul!
And like the seasons she constantly changes,
so have each years turn. Seeds from 'Learning to Cook' to Tidy,
and now listening to 'Tune-Up' while waiting
for her latest release, 'Sun Again'.
“Hip-hop is the most articulate music out there…
it’s the folk music of 2000.”
Kinnie and the Handsome Boyz 2
are amidst their eastern tour as of
September through until November 2002.
When not on stage with Kinnie & John,
you can find High-C and the russian on stage
with Tegan&Sara. More often than not, according to starr,
Vancouver hometown shows tend to be highly emotional.
Who knows how long fellow east-enders & Vansterdamners
will have to wait for the next emotional outbreak?

I love to see faces looking bright into each other
I love my fallen hands upon the skin of my new lover
I love the mad bliss that escapes beneath covers
Love the dreary state of awaiting sleep that hovers

To all ya' cats who think my interest in Kinnie
may be borderline obsessive,
I hope this site helps clarify things.
