Louisville Music COVIDiary #41: Nature provides relief with "Stars" by Fextonia


Louisville Music COVIDiary today features a peaceful tune called "Stars" from the Louisville band Fextonia. We received this entry from band member Chad Money. Chad says:

I'm from southeastern Kentucky and moved to Louisville in late 2009. For the past five years I've been a professor of mathematics at U of L. I helped found the band Fextonia in 1996 and have stuck with it ever since, writing and recording original music with a couple baseball teams' worth of good friends.

About the song: I visited Bell County in late December '19 and was greeted by the Milky Way, the first time I'd seen it in years. What we think of as "normal" or "important" is very small. The Cosmos offered a little perspective and, by good fortune. I was able to heed.


Welcome to The Louisville Music COVIDiary, a web series that highlights our City’s amazing and talented musicians as they deal with the effects of the COVID19 Pandemic. Because of the forced closure of our music venues and other places for artists to perform, many musicians are left without much needed income and disconnected from their audiences and each other. In this series, we have asked musicians to send us their homemade music videos as a way to stay connected in this strange and uncertain time.

If you'd like to participate please upload your video to Youtube then send the link to Laura Shine at lshine@wfpk.org.

Laura is the afternoon host from 3-6 pm weekdays. Email Laura at lshine@lpm.org
