"Her hypnotizingly beautiful voice and intricate, yet delicate fingerpicking guitar style recreate languid days and lonely nights that hint at a deeper darkness laying just below the surface." 
- Postcard Elba  

The Starling Curve is a name which refers to a law of anatomy which states (roughly) that what goes into the heart is equal to what comes out. It's a fitting manifesto for the music created by Jessi Adele and Adam McBride-Smith, whose songs touch on problems of the heart of all varieties. It also evokes the Northwest itself, which the Portland-based duo calls home and whose endless highways and skyways are the backdrop to their musical outings.
