New STARBYRD CD to be released on November 7th.

The new Starbyrd CD “Stardust” will be out on Nov. 7th.

The album features 12 brand new original songs rich in the jingle jangle sound of the 12-string Rickenbacker guitar. 

The release of the album is scheduled for November 7th, 2016.  

Extract from the liner notes written by "Jangle On" columnist Eric Sorensen: 

Stardust is the title of the latest offering of original tunes from the ever prolific German singer/songwriter Horst-Peter Schmidt.  Also quite appropriately, Stardust continues to carry the folk-rock torch from its 60s origins to the present. The majority of the songs on Stardust are mid-tempo tunes that feature Schmidt’s chiming Rickenbacker 370RM – with the snap, crackle and pop that only this guitar’s internal compressor can generate.  Starbyrd music continues to be linked to influential folk-rock predecessors like the Byrds and Roger McGuinn, as well as other 60s artists.[…]”
