The Center State first full-length album, Close Enough To Miss self recorded in St. Joseph Missouri with final mix engineer James Felver. is out now on iTunes, Spotify, and most other digital platforms.
Part acoustic pop music, part troubadour with a silky lament, and one part organic Americana, the album is a great first step into folk music. This confident collection of songs that is as agony filled in places as it is catchy in others, sometimes within the span of a single song. The trio and sometimes quintet of musicians are as eccentric as the music they play. The quirky Davidson couple that plays upright bass and violin, and shares vocals with the songwriter of the group Jeremy Sharp, are always inquisitive in pursuit of interesting music that has staying power. Jeremy, the acoustic guitarist of the group, honed his writing sensibility in the Midwest, surrounded by small towns, hot muggy days off the Missouri river.
The Center State has shared the stage with artists, such as Matthew West, Paul Clark, Sky Smead, Nick Africano, The Social Animals, and Jessica Paige.
