ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
State Maps began as a cover band in 2008 under the name "The Brandymans" (short for Brandy Manhattans, a favorite drink of the members at the time). Guitarist Greg Stelzer and bassist/songwriter Mike Wolf found drummer Nick Panka and keyboardist Adam Morstad through a series of Craigslist ads and chance meetings.

In 2011, the group decided to leave behind the wedding band scene and focus their combined 30 years of music performance experience on creating something original. In 2012, State Maps released "Killer Hill Day," their cardinal offering to the universe of recorded music.

"Killer Hill Day" explores the theme of juvenile nostalgia and the growing pangs associated with young adulthood through an eclectic mix of punk, pop, and acoustic numbers. The album opens with a jovial romp about engaging in poolside horseplay with nieces/nephews and concludes with a rockabilly track about hitchhiking through central Wisconsin. Though the songs are chiefly written and sung by Mike Wolf (with the exception of "Is It Enough?", written and performed by Greg Stelzer), each song contains personality elements from the entire band and could easily be written exclusively for/about each member.
