Starlite Radio began in 2002 as a creative outlet for the McDonald brothers- David, Jordan and Nathan. A year later, they were joined by Jessica Schlueter (who was dating Nathan at the time), who took over as lead singer. Nathan and Jessica wed in 2004 making the band an all family venture. The McDonalds currently reside in Rockford, IL, performing mainly in the Rockford and Chicago areas. Their first full-length album, 22 Blackbirds, was released May 2008.
