Singled Out: State Of Mine's Curtain Call

State Of Mine

Steve Jodway of State Of Mine tells us about the song "Curtain Call" from their brand new EP "Devil In Disguise". Here is the story:

When we went into the writing and recording for Curtain Call, we knew we wanted to write a song that was more than just a rock song. We wanted to tell a story as well as captivate the listener to see aspects of themselves in the story/song.

The song, along with the video, is our tale of one's feelings of having to deal with regret, and having to try to internalize the decision. It's like trying to find yourself lost in the dark.

This was my first time co-writing with anyone before and put me into a new element. But along side with our good friend and producer BJ Perry, we worked to try and refine, almost steadily guide the lyrics to give it a much more personal/intimate message for the listener.

Shawn, Matt (guitars) and BJ worked out the guitar tracks rather quickly. Corey (bass) put down the bass tracks in less than an hour. Mike(drums) worked along side BJ as well and the music started to take shape.

It was an absolute amazing experience to put together a creation of awesome power and beauty from nothing. I personally enjoyed this whole process because it was a labor of love. We wanted you to feel like at any point in the song you say to yourself, " I get it, now turn it up! "

And I truly feel like we captured that in this song.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
