Posted in State of Man News, State of Man Videos with tags , , , , , , , on March 21, 2010 by stateofman

State of Man’s single “Swallow Your Fears” snagged worldwide exposure in February 2010 when it was chosen for a  US Winter Olympic figure skating promotion on NBC.  US skater Evan Lysacek was then competing to grab a  spot on the US olympic team and now heralds as the holder of the gold medal for the U.S.A Mens figure skating. The exciting 30 second spot featured Evan and U.S.A. skating duo Belbin & Agosto who were fan favorites throughout the winter games.  Grab your copy of “Swallow Your Fears” on via your favorite digital retailer and/ or through itunes .

We’ve been tucked away and preparing for on onslaught of goodness for you, but we won’t pull the rabbit out the hat just yet.  Stay tuned b/c it will be worth it.

Right now, we wanted to share another one of our favorite fan feedback stories that emphasizes the healing power of music:

It’s Jen Wilson from Eastern! I had to share with you that I was introduced to your band from a client of mine. I work in the mental health field and do in home family therapy… my “connection” to this kid was our taste in music. I pretty much LOVE all genre’s. He shared with me awhile back some music he got off iTunes – and then this facebook craze occurred and I noticed your page, hence the band etc. What a small world!

So now I have been using State of Man’s lyrics in my Music and Movement group that I facilitate. I am the Director of an adult partial care program and we run therapeutic groups for adults that are mentally ill and have issues with substance abuse.

I just felt compelled to share that State of Man has fans in all “walks of life”. Keep doing what your doin’ – – -it’s phenomenal :)

Be well,

Pretty cool, huh?  If you’d like to share why you appreciate State of Man’s music, we’d love to hear form you.  Just go here and thanks in advance for your continued support!

“You want Answer’s? You can’t Handle the Deuce”… Back to Cuba

Posted in State of Man News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 18, 2009 by stateofman

Jack Nicholson - A few Good Men

Jack Nicholson - A few Good Men

“You want Answer’s? You can’t Handle the deuce” – Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men

OK…. that wasn’t exactly Jack Nicholson’s line, but since we’re headed back to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to headline an awesome New Year’s Eve bash for the troops, he told us you needed to hear it just like that!

Why, you ask? Because he told us take “The Deuce” as guest drums to stand on the wall with us!

He went on to say “You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties you want State of Man on that wall.  You need State of Man on that wall!

We use words like “the deuce”, “drums”, “them. We use these words to describe Mike Froedge (doubleDrive, Speed X) and Chris Presta (Soulphood),  who each rocked the State of Man drummer auditions like no one else!  The band has each the time and the inclination to bring them both drummers to The Rock – to rock –  while you rise and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that the troops they entertain provide!”

‘They are taking two drummers’ you ask? You’re G@% D@%N right they are!”

Down Colonel, down!

We’ve got some other guest musicians as well, so we’ll make sure to get on the list (click here) for a sneak peek.  That’s an order!

Got Cuba?
