CaliStar is the musical persona of Calista Wu. The singer-songwriter launched her current solo project in 2021 with the single “Ethereal Lover”. That track introduced a multi-talented artist, award-winning attorney, impassioned activist and dedicated advocate with strong convictions and a knack for writing great pop hooks.
An accomplished attorney, Calista was appointed as a judicial law clerk for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. She has also authored, co-authored, and edited numerous influential documents and law guides. Since launching her musical career, CaliStar has released a string of singles, including the song “Electric Highs” which appears on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for the Ron Yuan directed 2002 Universal/Netflix film Blade of the 47 Ronin.
“Glitterati” is the current single and title track from CaliStar’s debut EP, released worldwide via all major streaming services on May 19, 2023. Funky synth-pop arpeggios open the track before the beat drops on a low-rider trap beat. On the mic, CaliStar and featured rapper Kiyoné give firsthand accounts of some high-roller West Coast club-hopping.
