PRODUCERS NOTE: In September 2014, Nick Stargu Sr. & Nancy Trecina left my home after an impromptu recording session to ascertain 'if we gelled'.. I e-mailed them an hour later to say, 'I thought it was a great session and would be more than willing to work with them. Before I could send it, I found an e-mail from them. They said "after they left, they talked.. said 'that guy is great' and likewise thought it would be a great collaboration." I'd left the Music Industry many years before and while I still had some skills... couldn't believe they wanted to work with ME. Consummate performers, they always found time to come to 'The Ferret House' to create new idea's. While Nick's just a little older, he was in the top groups I watched in my teens. He'd played with 'the best', and now was willing to work with me? I would've traded my own past music career- to have been a member of those bands! In January 2017, we added Tom Traygis. I'd met him in our youths and was always impressed. A 'class-act', who'd played with many of the same musicians, he was a 'Producer's dream'.. I'd worked with many great percussionists. Some 'overthought an idea' and few could work conceptually, making the Producers vision become reality. Tom had creative, 'no nonsense' approaches that I learned were even better than my own concepts. As time has gone on.. he continues to bring a 'freshness' to 'Starcina' that also keeps us on our toes! Even 'minutes' count here... and we make great use of them in our teamwork! It will ALWAYS have been an honor to have been involved!

Interesting facts about the band:
· Songs aren’t ‘pre-planned’.. We wing it all from start to finish.
· The particular writer of a song often completes the song outline.
· All melodic instruments/vocals are then added track by track.
· Completed outline is sent to Tom who breaks the song down
and arranges 2 or 3 versions and extra percussion as needed.
· Those ‘versions’ and any extra percussion are recorded.
· Steve ( our Producer ) & Tom decide which drum ‘takes’ to use.
· Nick actually plays all his instrumental parts totally by feel,
often in a single take with no pre-planning!
· Nick actually plays all solo’s w/o any arpeggiators or sequencers!
· Steve’s ‘trademarks’ are his ‘harmonizing’ solo’s, often using
odd harmonies and ‘winging’ all solo’s with no ‘pre-planning’
· Steve is often ‘subtle’ in backing guitar tracks, often using a
combination of differing tones to achieve a certain ‘feel’.
* Steve can ‘rip’ w/ the best. Often subtly. Listen to the song
‘Blue Eyed Girl’ from 2:21 to 2:25 for incredible speed!
· Nick is an expert orchestrator! Listen to his harmonizing violins
in the intro of ‘Touching Me’.. He is an amazing pianist,
cellist, violinist- awesome on the B-3 organ ( a lost art these days )
as well as good old fashioned synth! And a world-class singer as
heard on ‘Shadow In Time’…
· Steve does not use a ‘whammy bar’ but is an expert at ‘note bending’
w/vibrato done manually. He is fluent in virtually all playing styles
and never practices!
· Tom has several drum sets at home but uses one particular set that
is kept at The Studio.
· Tom sometimes re-writes percussion parts ( literally drum-charts )
during some sessions as he is clever & creative & keeps us on our toes!
· Steve often uses ‘odd’ time signatures that may change during a song
such as a ‘delayed’ or ‘cascaded’ timing ( always to a click track ) which
he swears that Tom is the only drummer he’s ever worked with who can
tie it all together!
· We use no ‘standardized’ song formulas as ‘Starcina’ is the Studio Band
for Nick & Nancy’s ‘Starcina Productions’ a ‘Sound for Film’ entity.
· In the song ‘Nicole’ there is a subtle super-fast lick at 4:34 with Nick’s
keyboards & the bass guitar! This is a previously ‘unreleased version’
with one of several different drum takes from Tom who auditioned to
the song ‘Nicole’ in December 2016 and was the first song recorded by Steve,
Nick & Tom as a 3-pc group. The rest is history!
· On the song ‘Slipped Right Thru My Hands’ you’ll hear the incredible
soloing of Nick o the B-3 Organ and some world-class Grand piano and
those sweet ‘strings’ that mirror Steve’s incredible harmonizing guitars the last
minute ( all done for real- no ‘harmonizers’.. )
