The band Stars was formed in Toronto by vocalist Torquil Campbell and keyboardist Chris Seligman. The line-up subsequently grew to incorporate Evan Cranley, with whom Millan had played gigs while a member of the group 16 Tons. Feeling that Millan would be a good fit for the group, Cranley invited her to New York City to audition in December 1999. She got the gig.
