Psychedelic funk quartet Star Kitchen has released their first-ever original single, “Entirely”, via Color Red. The Philadelphia-based group, comprised of bassist Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits), drummer Marlon Lewis (Lauryn Hill, John Legend), guitarist Danny Mayer (Eric Krasno Band), and keyboardist Rob Marscher recruited The New Mastersounds guitarist/Color Red boss Eddie Roberts and percussionist Nate Werth to assist on their debut single.

After kicking off the year at Live For Live Music’s inaugural Denver Comes Alive, the group found time to make a stop at Color Red Studios to begin writing and recording their first original record. Although bassist Brownstein was recovering from eye surgery at the time, the group still came together to write, compose, and arrange new, original tracks, with more to be released throughout the duration of the year.

According to a press release, “Entirely” was arranged in about 30 minutes and showcases an array of influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix, Phish, James Brown, and more. Produced by Eddie Roberts and Josh Fairman (SunSquabi), the high-octane, boogaloo-esque track was quickly recorded to tape with Roberts and Nate Werth contributing additional parts.

As guitarist Danny Mayer explained in a statement, “We got to the Color Red house, settled in, [and] started jamming. The origins of this song came out of that first fully improvised jam we played in the studio while we were just getting sounds! That night we tightened a few things up [and] recorded it in the morning! We called it ‘Entirely’ because [Color Red’s] Zach Bloom told us we smoke ‘entirely too much weed!’ You don’t need to print that, but it’s the truth!”

The donation-based streaming event generated $55,000 and counting in funds for the participating artists, who remain out of work as the pandemic continues, as well as a number of social justice-oriented causes via PLUS1 For Black Lives Fund.
