We are saddened to hear about the passing of Lucas Starr (ex-Oh, Sleeper, Terminal). He was only 34-years-old and has died after losing a battle with stage 4 colon cancer. Starr was diagnosed with the disease over the summer as a GoFundMe was launched to help pay for his medical bills. Starr died on December 7th, at his home in Fort Worth, TX. Starr worked on the first two Oh, Sleeper albums 2007’s When I Am God and 2009’s Son of the Morning and left during the process of 2011’s Children of Fire who was replaced by Nate Grady at that time. A celebration of Starr’s life will be held at the City On A Hill Church in Ft. Worth, TX this Saturday (15th).
His former Oh, Sleeper bandmate, Shane Blay, shared the following brief tribute via Instagram:
I was lucky enough to collaborate with Lucas Starr @lucasstarr on one of his projects, At Night We Strike. His passion inspired a lot of new creativity musically for me, even if 90% of it will never see the light of day. Thank you, Lucas. Rest In Peace. https://t.co/01ay4zytx0

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Oh Sleeper member Lucas Starr. Jameson had attended a conference or two with Lucas in years past and he was always very gracious and friendly, an amazingly talented guy. Listening to #wheniamgod
