United State of Mind

United State of Mind


We are six writer/musicians coming together from Maryland and Pennsylvania to pave a new musical path with classic sounds and production, and a few twists along the way.


USM began as a vehicle for some friends to explore musical horizons together in the 80's. In the early 2000's, original members Al Peteraf and Chuck Heck decided to focus on producing a commercially available CD. Enlisting the help of local drummer Mark Wells, and guitarist Ed Wells, the project began in earnest. Soon, Philly musicians Lance Ryan on keys, and Tim Brill on bass joined to complete the line-up and the CD (and the band) began to take on a life of it's own. The band suddenly realized that this was one of those magical moments when the right musicians came together at the right time, and the result is the exciting new debut CD "U".
