“Bloody Samaritan,” is the lead single off her debut album, 19 & Dangerous, which was released in 2021, after an impressive, self-titled 2021 EP. Exploring relationships, betrayal, and self-assurance on the album, the artist chronicles the transition from adolescence to adulthood.
Throughout 19 & Dangerous, Starr remains bold and unapologetic, whether exhibiting her grandeur in banging earworms or acknowledging her vulnerabilities in heartfelt ballads. She showcases her vocal and emotional range as the project’s mood shifts from sunny to gloomy when her lyrics dictate.
