State Cows - westcoast band - Smooth guitar lines, half-time shuffles, funky bass lines, slick harmonies, real Fender Rhodes, tight horn sections and some California sunshine... it's all in there.

After releasing the album "Days in L.A." to rave reviews in 2008, Daniel Andersson and collaborator Stefan Olofsson decided to embark on a full-fledged, no-compromise Westcoast/AOR project. The project eventually turned into the band STATE COWS and an upcoming album of brand new songs.
Join State Cows at Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/statecows Here is a small selection of stores that will carry the State Cows album. Some of them have pre-ordering possibilities.
State Cows Shop
We heard you. :) By popular request, it is now possible to pre-order also the CD version of this album. Head over to our Bandcamp page if you like to secure a physical copy of "The Second One".
We have signed a deal with Avenue of Allies and are happy to announce that "The Second One" will be available in record stores and for digital download worldwide on the 24th of May.
Starting now, you can pre-order the digital version on Bandcamp and receive an immediate download of the song "This Time" featuring the great Michael Landau!
We just received a small batch of the Japanese edition of our debut CD. This edition has a different mastering and contains the bonus track "Time For Changing".
The artwork for the new album is ready! Made by the amazing Stephen Harrison. Please pay him a visit at http://bonnysaintandrew.deviantart.com/.
We are very fortunate to work with some of the very best Swedish and Norwegian musicians. They have all contributed to the record with their outstanding performances! So to all musicians - we are very lucky to have you on board the "The Second One". Thank you!
Christian Thomsen - The high tenor that can reach notes we didn't even know existed. In full voice.
Mikael Emsing - If you can hit it, he can make music out of it. Criminally good percussionist.
Göran Turborn - North Sweden's best kept secret (don't tell anyone). Played the guitar solo to "Brother to Brother" note perfectly in chilly autumn weather.
Peter Olofsson - If Steve Gadd, Jeff Porcaro and Ringo Starr had a baby ... The foundation of the State Cows sound.
Per Bejstam - We stumbled upon his incredible Dirty Loops horn arrangements and were lucky enough to have him add some magic to our record as well. And he plays all horns by himself.
Lars-Erik Dahle - The funkiest bass player in Norway. Period.
Pär Wretling - You heard him as part of a horn section on our debut album. Now you will have the chance to hear is warm and soulful tone as a soloist.
Peter Holmqvist - The angular jazz guitarist who enhanced our previous album is back with a vengeance. Solo guitar at its best.
Samuel Muntlin - The amazing saxophone player who also turned out to be a master of the EWI (Google it).
Marcuz Granberg - The lead singer of Steely Dan tribute Second Arrangement and live background singer of State Cows enhances our new record with his warm vocals. Soul is the keyword.
Sven Larsson - Completely blew us away with his fantastic guitar playing. As good as it gets.
Also thanks to Anders Lundkvist for his amazing bass playing on stage and Johan Viksten for his excellent slide guitar work.
