Stars Go Dim is a four-man collective forging like-minded modern pop, infused with both deep meaning and well-honed fun, merging layers of guitars, keys, loops and percussion to convey timeless messages.
The guys in the band Stars Go Dim are determined to use their musical gifts for one passionate purpose: letting people know about God’s relentless love for them. Their song, ” You Are Loved,” from the album Stars Go Dim (2015) delivers that message like a clarion call.
As Chris Cleveland (lead singer) explains it “We are all part of a love story. One of God’s love for his people and His love for each one of us. Thinking about society and the world today we are divided on so many things. Politics. Race. Religion. We have opinions on everything and everyone. We are told who to be, what to think, how to feel, even what our bodies should look like. This is not the plan that God had for this world. He loved us so much that He sent His son to live, die and physically rise and walk out of a grave. And He gives us that same promise, so that we can join this love story that God has been telling since the beginning. This all starts with knowing just how much our heavenly Father loves us.”
Chris helped found Stars Go Dim in 2007 with Joey Avalos, Lester Estelle II and Michael Wittig and is the one remaining original band member. However, the vision of the band carries on and Chris is now joined by his brother, Michael Cleveland (guitar), Josh Roach (aka Black Panda – drums) and Kyle Williams (guitar).
