With influences from bands like The 1975 and Imagine Dragons, Lost Stars is known for their lyrically driven songs that crossover pop, rock, dance and indie styles to create a truly unique sound. The band is comprised of three guys with Midwest roots, Kansas if you want to get specific, that now call Nashville their home.
In their first year as a band, Lost Stars released their debut EP, Dreaming in the Dark, introducing the Nashville music scene to a new brand of pop music. Shortly after in the spring of 2017, Damian Malnar (vocals/keys), Charley Holden (guitar), and Trey Warner (guitar) went on tour for the first time, hitting places like Kansas City, Chicago, St. Louis and Atlanta. During this time they opened up for heavy hitting indie bands like Coin and ARIZONA, gaining thousands of new fans along the way. Since their first successful tour, they’ve released a follow-up single, “It Only Takes One”, booked a second tour, signed a sync licensing deal, and continue to work on new music. During their Shot In The Dark Tour in the early parts of 2018, Lost Stars played in 20 different cities in the south and northeast including major markets like: New York, Dallas, Philadelphia, Tampa, DC, and more. They also returned to Kansas City, Chicago, and Atlanta for their summer series.
Since their first successful tour, they’ve released a couple singles, “It Only Takes One” and “Whip Me,” booked a second tour, signed a sync licensing deal, shot 3 live performance videos, and continued to work on new music. The trio went back in the studio right before the holidays to record their sophomore EP titled SIRENS + LIGHT, featuring the singles "Once in a Lifetime", "Never Getting Over You", and "Enough". With a new record, more energy, a third tour, and lots of puns, Lost Stars is gearing up for a wild ride this year.
“The release of ”Once In A Lifetime” plants the group even more on our radar, and shows us they’d fit great on a billwith Coin, The 1975, and even our hometown pals 90s Kids.If the right tastemakers get wind of Lost Stars, [they] could be destined for a summer nights anthem of 2019.”

“Lost Stars sound like the next band that will take the main stages at the big summer music festivals, what with their massive and anthemic pop sound, their introspective lyrics, and Damian Malnar’s powerful vocals”
