about

Great States’ debut full-length, entitled Gatsby, takes a small glimpse into three and half years of hard work and perseverance. “We’re very happy with what we’ve accomplished over the last few years. Before last May [2013], the idea of releasing an entire record seemed inconceivable… and yet here we are. ‘Gatsby’ really is more than just the four of us; a lot of our fellow artists, friends, and family have left their mark on the album in some way or another. It really is community music for us.”

There is something to be said about releasing a record independently; it isn’t glamorous. Time – there isn’t enough of it. Energy – there isn’t enough of it. Money – there isn’t enough of it. Dreams of million dollar studios are quickly replaced by university basements, vocal booths by bedroom closets, and record deals by personal bank accounts. However, every once in a while the right group of people will find themselves together, and no amount of obstacles or pipe dreams can deter them from creating and sharing their music.
