Fronted by female singer/songwriter Keva Tanyi, This Great State is an American indie rock band born out of Reno, Nevada in 2015 and currently resides in Sacramento, California.
On stage is where Tanyi’s presence really shines as she pairs haunting vocals with bright red lipstick and a playful, yet sassy demeanor. Backed with immersive drums, melodic bass lines, and southern rooted guitar riffs, This Great State immediately pulls you in with their crunchy swing rhythms and catchy synth-pop leads. Together with guitarist Chase Daley, drummer Dillon Secklin, and bassist Max Landis, their music is best described as blues-inspired alternative rock with powerhouse vocals.
Just off the release of their EP, Basements (2018) and two singles on Tumbleweed (2017),
This Great State is currently traveling and playing shows throughout the country.
