Sea Stars

The music of Katie Gray and Kurt Baumann, collectively known as Sea Stars, is a mood to be experienced.  Heartfelt and somber, mysterious and haunting, uplifting and hopeful… these are but a few words that often swim around the room to define the music the two singers and songwriters invoke.  

Kurt and Katie enjoy working both together and apart in their musical adventures.  Katie (www.katiegray.com) has been a guest vocal with groups such as Band of Horses (live on Jimmy Kimmel), Nightmares on Wax, Ani Difranco and Random Rab, while Kurt enjoys to focus primarily on recording and performing with his band The Burned (www.theburnedmusic.com).
Most recently the two were featured on NBC’s The Today Show with Hoda Kotb performing their duet “Time” live.



“In the 45 years I have lived in LA, it’s the best thing I have ever seen.”
