There are two bands named Tin Star. #1 Tin Star is a Durham, NC trio. Their first record, Bettie Lane, is to be released on July 28, 2009. Jamie's knock-out voice carries an airy, ethereal quality, providing a provocative contrast to the dissonant, edgy guitar. On Bettie Lane the band offer original songs that are straight-forward, yet experimental, showing influences ranging from bands as diverse as Cocteau Twins, Blonde Redhead, Velocity Girl and Portishead.
