As an infant of two months, Star Nayea was taken away from her Native American family, as part of the 1950’s-70’s baby sweep perpetrated by the United States and Canada.
To this day, Star Nayea still searches, and prays to one day be reunited with her Native American birth family. As Star grew into a young woman she was surrounded by the Motor City Rock ‘n’ Roll scene. With that famed MO-Town sound!
This would inevitably hand Star Nayea her unique and undeniable soul-ful style. Star Nayea began to tear up the stages in Detroit. Moving on to Austin, New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Toronto just to name a few.
Star Nayea had the great pleasure of working with famed, National West Coast heavy metal band “Testament.” Whose front man ‘Chuck Billy,’ is from the Pomo Indian Nation. Star’s voice appears on their CD, “LIVE AT THE FILMORE,” on two tracks.
At the Fourth Annual Native American Music Awards in 2001, Star’s highly acclaimed five song EP ‘Somewhere in a Dream,’ took home the award for “Best Independent Recording.”
Star’s song, “Mountain Song,” appeared on the 2005 Grammy Award Winning compilation: “Sacred Ground: A Tribute To Mother Earth.”
In 2008, Star releases her highly acclaimed CD: Silenced My Tongue.
