“Their approach to music is something I haven’t seen in years. It’s fresh, unrelenting and it’s all theirs. It’s everything you look for as a fan of music.”
– Kevin Martin (Candlebox)
“A band I think you need to know...”
– Kat Corbett (KROQ)
Hailed as the Los Angeles flag bearers of atmospheric alternative rock, STATE TO STATE stands out for its live wall-of-sound performances, its innovative approach to song-writing and the powerful, soaring range of lead vocalist Shea Stratton.
The band routinely plays to sold-out crowds across Southern California and the continental U.S., including multiple invites to such world-famous clubs as The Troubadour and The Roxy, as well as residencies at LA’s Viper Room, Hotel Café and iconic El Rey Theatre, where they again provided main support to Candlebox after joining the multi-platinum-selling band on the Florida run of its 25th anniversary tour. At Milwaukee’s Summerfest 2019, STATE TO STATE provided main support to Collective Soul, and performed during the final Van’s Warped Tour 2018.
In the studio for much of 2019 with Grammy-nominated Producer of the Year Johnny K, STATE TO STATE is polishing its new collection of songs with plans to tour in support of them in 2020.
The band’s last two singles—“The Shifter” and “Get Away”—were featured on LA’s KROQ 106.7 FM “Locals Only Countdown with Kat Corbett.” The songs spent a collective 22 weeks in the top five and were voted #1 a total of seven weeks.
The SoCal radio attention from KROQ, KCSN, 91X and others paved the way for national and international spins, even breaking the top 40 in Lima, Peru. “Get Away” is now approaching 200k streams on Spotify.
STATE TO STATE’S latest single—“We Are the Reckless”—is available on all streaming formats.
You can Request the new single, "We Are The Reckless" on The New 88.5 FM!
“another round of applause is necessary for Shea Stratton’s ability to sing, hell to belt his lyrics.”

“This band is dripping with talent in an otherwise Auto-Tuned world of mediocrity of newer acts getting airplay and the spotlight.”
– ZRockR Magazine
“a sonic onslaught of sounds that should make most fans of indie rock giddy with excitement.”
– Divide and Conquer Music
“The alt rock act from LA is similar to powerhouses like Muse but they are confidently their own act.”
