It is the way of musical talent across the globe that most people who are successful need to move on to find success. The guys in Estrella whose roots are deep in Caithness have moved with success pulling them away. Now located in Aberdeen they have busy schedule of gigs and are increasingly asked to play around the country.
Friends and fans can stay in touch with the band through their new web site Estrella Rocks that looks the part with sections filling up and coming soon a place for music downloads - a must now for any band that is serious about getting the music out to the fans and the preferred route for quite few recent chart successes.
Keeping up their usual fast pace the guys are releasing an EP on 27 April and all being well it will be in local music shops. Caithness seems to have become a musical factory in recent years with many new bands appearing for a short while and then vanishing as the members head off for college or uni. Estrella has done the apprenticeship and made the leap towards making it a career. There are few breaks in the harsh world that is starting the climb towards a successful musical life that can pay the rent but Estrella are finally playing their way into the wider Scottish music scene.
