Stars at Dawn is the musical project of writer and producer Brian Baron. By blending sound design with traditional musical instruments Stars at Dawn has become a powerful artistic expression of Brian’s mind. By exploring topics such as consciousness, death, emotion, loss, and the journey each person takes through life, Stars at Dawn hopes to elevate the listener to a participant in the process of artistic creation.
Raised in Seattle WA, Brian spent his formative years growing up in the rock and roll world that his mother, a song writer and multi-instrumentalist, and father, a producer and band manager, were actively involved in. From a very young age he sat in on studio and music writing sessions. As a teenager he became involved in planning underground music events where he eventually started to learn electronic music production from some of the top producers in the Seattle scene.
After university, Brian spent over a decade in China as a music producer, and street dancer where he perfected his craft and finally developed his sound. Stars at Dawn is the product of two generations of musicians.
