Born of the Stars - Bio
Born of the Stars is a solo music project created by Michael Kushner. The name "Born of the Stars" was chosen to reflect Michael's love for science and was inspired by one of his favorite quotes:
“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” - Carl Sagan
Michael writes all of the music and lyrics, performs or programs all of the instruments, does all his own mixing, mastering, and production, and creates his own album art for each Born of the Stars release.
In October 2012 Michael released the debut self-titled EP “Born of the Stars”. This EP is a concept EP featuring 5 tracks that combine elements from many different genres of music including alternative rock, hard rock, progressive metal, electronica, and post rock.
Soon after the release of the self titled "Born of the Stars" EP Michael began working on new music for the next Born of the Stars release. On October 5th, 2014 Michael released a 6 track EP titled "Let Go”.
Michael is currently in the studio working on more new music.

2012 Self-titled EP Reviews
"The best song of this release comes under the name of “A Change In You”, a true rollercoaster experience that is full of cool drum patters, solid riffs and very effective vocal lines. This song is a bit more on the ‘alternative’ side, and we sure hope to hear it one day on the ‘regular’ radio. For a 5 song release, this EP is quite the presentation card for Born of the Stars. We are pleasantly surprised with the quality of the music and production found in this EP and hopefully will get the band noticed by labels" - Read the full review at: Infernal Masquerade
"Michael’s fusion of metal and ambient electronics does remind me of the great Australian guitarist Paul Wardingham’s concept of “futuristic metal” and, while the music is not nearly as technical as Paul’s, Michael does have a great knack for crafting emotional vocal melodies that work really well on top of his electronic metal sound."

"When you listen to a solo project of this kind, you would always expect to find any weak spots in any of the instrumental or production phases; however, when I listened to it, it turned out to be a flawless piece of music."
