States evolved from the dissolution of two bands; Lydia, and Copeland. Vocalist/keyboardist Mindy White (Lydia) and the gifted musical brothers' Laurenson (Copeland) have created in States a new sound to my mind. I am a DJ, and I'm exposed to new acts all the time. When I first heard States, I was blown away. The absolutely beautiful melodies, artful guitar dual delivery, and soaring vocals had me spinning. The reviewer has captured most of their essence, but I encourage you to check them out. Their EP also has some gems. Time To Begin, Falling For, and Asleep, are all ephemeral works, and this is one band that is deserving of much greater attention. Are you listening, Ellen Degeneres?
