An indie rock quartet whose debut single, "Fever," earned them the title of "Britain's best new band" in February 2001, Starsailor continue the rich lineage of Travis, Coldplay, and other anthemic pop/rock bands. Formed in Wigan by music students James Walsh (vocals/guitar), James Stelfox (bass), and Ben Byrne (drums), the band went through several guitar-heavy embryonic lineups before the arrival of keyboardist Barry Westhead (keyboards) cemented its sound. Starsailor took their name from Tim Buckley's acclaimed 1970 album and, with their lineup in place, played their first London show at the Heavenly Social in April 2000. At the same time, a demo tape containing the tracks "Fever," "Coming Down," and "Love Is Here" began circulating around the music industry. A queue of record companies had formed by that summer, many of them eager to sign the nascent band, and EMI won the race for their signature. After spending January 2001 on an NME-sponsored tour with JJ72 and Amen, Starsailor released the "Fever" single to critical praise.

By the end of 2009, Walsh had put the band on hiatus in order to focus on his solo career; they would remain inactive for five years. Starsailor reunited in 2014, embarking on a series of festival appearances and support slots, including shows with the Pixies and James. The following year saw the release of a greatest-hits album, which featured their first new material since their re-formation in the tracks "Give Up the Ghost" and "Hold On." Two years later, Starsailor returned with their fifth studio album, All This Life, featuring production from Embrace guitarist Richard McNamara.
