Reviews:
From Nadamuco's Seattle Bands to watch 2017
Admission: I’m usually turned off by solo harmonica and acoustic guitar together, but one-woman-band Zelda Starfire’s fast and brutal Hasil Adkins style country punk lifts me to the high heavens. Lo-Fi and human, with short songs with great names like “Chicken Killin” and “Never Drinking Again,” Zelda has personality and style coming out of her ears. – Glenn Smith

Zelda is genius. Was blown away 10 seconds into “Never Drinking Again.” – Jim Toohey

Yep. This kills. – Graham Isaac

As a one man band and a writer specialized in one man/woman bands I come across a lot of acts but Zelda Starfire has always held a special place in my monoband heart. From afar I watched her evolution pretty much from the beginning. She has kept the fire burning that she had when she first began but honed it into a blow torch.
Her songs are rough and biting with echoes of the blues, country and punk a bit like Jessie Mae Hemphill (legendary blues one woman band) sped up on overdrive. Zelda's grit and wildness come through in the same way that Hasil Adkins (probably the most legendary one man band of all time) could go seemingly completely crazy with hand, feet and voice yet keeping it all together to the point that she's not playing guitar, drums, harmonica and singing but making music that starts straight in the heart and explodes through her every appendage all at the same time!
Her latest recordings are a treat and we can't wait for more!

Track Name: Never Drinking Again
How the Hell Did I get Here
I reek of whiskey there's guilt in my hair
I have hurt my hand somehow
How many demons did I knock out
No no never no no not drinkin again

Busted glass and bloody shoe
Thangs that I cannot undo
Open the bottle out sprays my soul
turned carnival barker one man freak show
no no...

I'm so sick don't talk to me
You'll get your apology
I'll give you a warm whiskey kiss
Forget that you saw me like this
no no
Track Name: Chicken Killin
gonna kill the chicken- crows too early in the morn
gonna kill the chicken- crows too early in the morn
I know my neighbor hates me
crows too early in the morn
I live in the city
Can't have no rooster round
I live in the city, can't have no rooster round
gonna kill that chicken
there will be no more early sound
Gonna kill the chicken....
Chop his little head off
gonna drop him in some stew
Chop his little head off
gonna drop him in some stew
gonna tell my neighbor-gonna be so tasty too
Track Name: RAIN KISS
Whacha gonna do in a case like this?
Whacha gonna do in a case like this?
Whacha gonna do in a case like this?
I'm gonna grab your face and give you a kiss
Rainin so hard and my baby can't see
Had to stop the car and you wouldn't believe
Had to pull over by the side of the road
Raining so hard gonna strangle a toad
can't see out and you can't see in
Thunder cloud gonna cover your sin
Comin down in sheets you can hide inside
Fog it up when the sun don't shine
Watcha gonna do in a case like this?
Grab your face
Gonna give you
a Kiss
Track Name: Home
Its the longest rode I'e been on, raises dirt from miles around. And I cant wait to get to your house- nobody knows I"m in town. And I get this feeling, when I'm walkin towards your door, I'm kickin rocks and it hits me, baby, I can't see you anymore

I can only sleep when I'm there, cicadas wake up just to sing for me, the wind told me everything that happened here, the cottonwood sheds its mystery. And I don't like to stargaze, makes me feel so alone. I'll pretend you're here beside me, baby, You can never go back home

Saw this guy painting on this old house and I say "what's so good about this place"? He said; "I can hear here laughing". He sadi, "I can see her face".
Track Name: Granddaddy Longlegs
Granddaddy Long Legs, Grandaddy Long Legs, Grandaddy Long Legs, You're in the city now, Granddadyy Long Legs, Granddaddy Long leggs, Grandaddy Long legs, you're out among em now.

There aint no dirty boots....You're in the city Now
Granddaddy Long legs, all you got is dirty boots- wipe em in the tall grass- you're out among em now

There aint no moonshine....You're in the city now
Grandaddy Long legs, Alll you got is moonshine- better get a new drink- you're out among em now.

There aint no mumbly peg.... You're in the city now
Grandaddy Long legs- all you play is mumbly peg- better get a new game, you
you're out among em now.

no chicken fried steak.....You're in the city now
Grandaddy Long legs all you got is steak- better get some sushi- your'e out among em now

There aint no keggers....You're in the city now
Grandaddy Long legs, come out of those woods, get to a club, you're out among em now
Track Name: In My Drawer
I feel a tooth ache coming, I feel a tooth ache comin on- I got some snake root that I been savin in my drawer. I ant never felt this kind of pain before- and thats why I got that in my drawer- I hope you find what you're lookin for
I feel a heart ache comin- I feel a heart ache comin on. I got some cherry stones that I benn savin in my drawer. Take em out and burn em and I won't miss you no more and tha'ts why I got that in my drawre. I hope you find what you're looking for

I feel a chill a comin- I feel a chill a comin on- I got persimmon seeds that i been savin in my drawer. If i see a knife its' gonna cut you right to the core and that's why I got that in my drawer. I hope you find what you're lookin for
Track Name: Union Horse
star gazer, sun catcher, I know i just drew slack, crow hopper, arm jerker, don't ball out don't break my back, union horse, 8 seconds, honest bucker till the buzzer sounds, pick up man, come and get me, put me on the ground, I wanna go to the rodeo, There's the fastest roper, on the second row...
Suck back, sway back, big ol ugly coffin head, shoot fighter, he's a floater, just an outlaw of a thoroughbred, give a nod, pray to God, H'es a high roller and I stay on, entry fee, penalty, no time next rodeo for me. I wanna kiss from the rodeo queen- she's the toughest gal that I've ever seen.
Track Name: In Your Sleep
When you slumber, oh so deep. I hate to think you would weep. You may never know it but I'm singing to you in your sleep. I'll send my song, across the mountain, through the ocean, to your stream, through the wheat fields and like a siren, I'll call your name, in your dreams.

When you're workin oh so hard, and you're up with the morning star, you may never know it, but I'm singin to you in your heart. I'll send my song across the mountain, through the ocean, to your stream, through the wheat filelds and like a siren, I'll call your name, in your dreams

And when you're aching down to your feet and you're weary and you're beat. you may never know it but I'm singing to you in your sleep. You may never know it but I'm lovin you in your sleep
