Alestar Digby


Alestar Digby has been an Award Winning Musician, Singer, Songwriter, and part of the Los Angeles music scene for the past 15 years. Alestar exemplifies powerful vocals, evocative lyrics and a larger-than-life stage-presence. Alternating between hard-driven beats and explosive guitar riffs, Alestar's music is an exhilarating classic rock experience. His most recent Award Winning Album, "REFLECTIONS", is a departure from the rock n' roll he is known for. This album is an instrumental with original classical piano pieces with no overdubs, recorded live.

Previously awarded Best Modern Rock Band of 2007 by The Rock City News, Alestar was also recognized as Best Songwriter of 2006.
