Jersey State 5 Song Demo
recorded at We Outspoken Studios



Jersey State is not just a band, but a family consisting of five, talented, unique individuals.

The band started off being a pop punk band called 4 the Win, which consisted of Keith Linton, Chris Fleming, Julian Petelycky and Stephan Peralta, but eventually the band aquired a Ukrainian musician by the likes of Anton Savytski. With this new band member/family member, the band decided that a change had to take place. This change would result in a new name, and ultimately...a new band. The name "Jersey State" was taken from Keith Linton's childhood hometown in New Jersey, United States.
Jersey State is a band that represents teenage life, energy, and the connection between music and where you come from.

The band takes many influences from many different styles of music and many elements in the life that surrounds them. From listening to bands such as Billy Talent, to any type of house/trance/electro music, to classical concertos and film score...this band listens to it all. The band's sound comes from mixing the pleasant darkness of Keith's voice and personality, the catchy riffs and raw filling of guitarists Anton Savytski and Christopher Fleming, the melodic, low bass sound of Julian Petelycky, and the punk rock, driving drums of Stephan Peralta all into one smorgasbord of sound that uplifts those listening to it, and tries to pull on some emotional strings to make the listeners think and relate.

What sets Jersey State apart from other bands is the driving, inspirational personality of vocalist Keith Linton and the ever strong "balls" to dare to be dark, catchy, and rock. From soaring melodies to hilarious/corny gestures, this vocalist/frontman knows how to entertain the crowd. From the most minor of chords, to the most hummable of melodies, this band dares to show the world that they are not scared to let rock music flow through their veins and to have fun while doing it.

If there's any band that displays a true family type connection between its members, personality, driving melodic riffs, soaring vocals and harmonies, and a desire to be heard and related to...that band is Jersey State.
