Early life[edit]

Starley Hope was born and raised in Sydney, Australia.[2] She later moved to London to pursue a career in music, before moving back to Australia and signing with the label Tinted Records.[3]

Career[edit]

2016–present: Breakthrough[edit]

Starley featured on Odd Mob's single "Into You", the song was released on 8 April 2016. She released her debut single "Call on Me" on 29 July 2016 through Tinted Records. The song was re-released through Tinted Records and Epic Records on 13 October 2016.

In June 2018, Starley release "Love is Love". The track comes just over six months after the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey. Stanley said on a press release to promote the single "Love is Love" is a very personal song for me. I had written a first draft for it that had a lot less detail. After sharing it with a few friends, it seemed it wasn't hitting home all the way, and I realised it was because I was leaving out the parts of the story I felt uncomfortable sharing. I decided to re-write it and dig deeper. That felt scary and liberating at the same time. From that process "Love is Love" was born. I'm nervous and excited to share it with the world!” [4] In July and August 2018, Starley supported Katy Perry on the Australian leg of her Witness Tour.[5]

In November, she appeared in the music video for Baby by Clean Bandit.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Starley told her family she was bisexual in 2017. She had previously dated men and told Star Observer that her family were "surprised" and her announcement was a "big deal for them". In 2018, Starley performed at the Sydney Mardi Gras for the first time and was the co-headline act at the official party.[7][8]
