- Biography Stellarondo emerged in Missoula, Montana during winter 2010 when Caroline Keys-- a regular in the NW old time stringband community-- responded to a challenge by writing and recording an album of original music during the month of February. Keys' project quickly evolved to include a full band of stalwarts from diverse corners of Missoula's music scene. Stellarondo's lush, dreamy alt-folk debut was recorded by Adam Selzer at Type Foundry and Scenic Burrows in Portland, OR in September 2010. Since the band's debut CD release tour in February Stellarondo has served as Artists-in-Residence at a rural school in central Montana, scored a locally-written short play, worked with Missoula Writing Collaborative to set poems of 4th & 5th graders to music. Stellarondo is currently collaborating with writer Rick Bass "scoring" pieces of his short fiction.
