About Falling Stars
Falling Stars are a Cleveland based power pop band that roll as much as they rock.
They are heading into the mixing phase of their 3rd release with known producer John Agnello whose lengthy list of credits include Dinosaur Jr., Son Volt, The Kills and more. It was recorded at the legendary Magic Barns studios in Iowa.
The yet to be titled LP will be released in the Fall of 2023 and finds the band building on the hooky edges of their debut album Stranded in the Future that was produced by Don Dixon.
Their fiery live set is not to be missed.
About Doug McKean and the Stuntmen
Doug McKean crossed the US and Canada several times over with his first band, The GC5 by the time they broke up when he was still in his early 20’s. He’s backed Tim Easton in Europe, opened for the Band of Heathens and Hayes Carll across Texas with The Magpies, and fronted a group of Cleveland musicians to play Pogues songs every St. Patrick’s day and Christmas for over 20 years as The Boys from The County Hell, racking up a tour with Spider Stacy, a trip to Bangkok and a residency in Las Vegas along the way. His song ‘Poor Old Poseidon’ was featured in the 2017 film La Barracuda. In 2011, he stepped away from performing original music.
After a decade-long hiatus, McKean released The Second Golden Age of Piracy in 2022, and it was time to start collaborating in-person again. McKean called his old friends, Brent Kirby and Bobby Latina, with whom he’d occasionally filled in on bass in their band The Jack Fords, who eagerly signed on to add drums and guitar. They recruited Andy Leach, who performs with Kirby as a duo and in their Gram Parsons revival project The New Soft Show - to play bass, and Doug McKean and The Stuntmen was born. As a quartet, it’s an experienced and accomplished group that switches gears effortlessly between Byrdsy pop, fizzy punk, and Stonesy rock. As a songwriter, McKean is elated to have a group of musicians around him that match the openness, inquisitiveness, and fearlessness of his songs.
Between the four of them, they’ve been nominated for local music awards in every genre from punk to country to folk. They’ve shared stages with everyone from Raul Malo to Social Distortion, Elizabeth Cook to Bobby Keys, Dawes to Dropkick Murphys, The Blind Boys of Alabama to The James Gang and many, many more.They'll be hitting the stages of Cleveland and beyond regularly in 2023.
