Formed in 1993 by Jason Martin, Starflyer 59 was one of the first bands signed to Tooth and Nail Records when it formed in the same year, and is currently the oldest active band on the label. They are among the most prolific bands in the Christian music scene, with 11 studio albums released, as well as a slew of EP's and live recordings. The band has gone through numerous line. up changes, with the current line-up being lyricist Jason Martin (guitar/lead vocals), Steven Dial (Bass), and Trey Many (Drums).

The sound of Starflyer 59 has evolved from their first album, 'Silver', through 'Dial M', their latest. Starting out, the band's music could firmly be classified Shoegaze, with droning, effect-laden guitars and vocals that blended in with the music. As the band matured, the songs have taken on a more Dream-Pop tone, slowing down a bit and letting the vocals take the spotlight. Jason Martin sings with a smooth, tenor voice, and, as the main lyricist, writes songs imbued with his personal thoughts and feelings on life and the world.

All studio releases have been on the label Tooth and Nail, except IAMACEO which is being self-released in 2013. « hide
