SOMETIMES, THE DECISION TO STOP...STARTS EVERYTHING. It’s exactly the situation Chris Cleveland found himself in when the previous iteration of his band Stars Go Dim came to a close.
What started out as a simple side project became a successful recording and touring entity, even while Cleveland maintained his “day job” leading worship at a church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Yet as the original Stars Go Dim began to fade, everyday life became more and more integrated into Cleveland’s reality – marriage, two kids, a steady job, a sense of contentment. He knew that music would always be a part of his life, but in the stillness of the moment, when touring was no longer his career, Cleveland was more able to get focused on the role music would have in his life moving forward. And that’s when everything started. And now, here’s what Stars Go Dim is moving into the future: an entity creating modern worshipful pop, infused with both deep meaning and well-honed fun, merging layers of guitars, keys, loops and percussion to convey timeless messages. With the breakout success of their debut single “You Are Loved”, a Dove nomination for New Artist of the Year, a KLOVE Fan Awards nomination for Breakout Song of the Year, and an aggressive tour schedule and compelling live show, there’s no stopping what’s now started with Stars Go Dim.
