W. Stewart - Coosa
In early 2011, from the depths of Birmingham, AL, Blank State was born. Founding members, Ross Parker (Bass) and Will Stewart (Guitar, Vocals), wanted to create a band that played honest, stripped down Rock that carried a sense of urgency. In the following months they enlisted Nick Recio (Drums) to complete the sound they had envisioned.
The songwriting continued and soon they went into the studio to record their first EP, “Twins” with the help of local recording engineer, Emanual Ellinas. The result was a blistering set of tracks with strong melodies, distorted, jangling guitars, deep bass, tight drums and an ethos that is unmistakably Southern.
