Hi, I really liked it. I actually have a producer working on a project that you may be a good fit. If interested in an interview for the podcast, contact me. - Blonde Intelligence

Lyric is pretty universal in scope so makes for ease in finding films and TV programs to which it could be presented for potential licensing. Being a clean version, it ups those chances. Vocals are simple and in the pocket throughout. Some of the backing vocals peppered in are interesting and enhance the track.

I like that while it's an accessible general theme, there's a good personal story there as well. The simplicity of delivery is ingratiating while it also speaks to life and living it as best you can. You've got a good song here, Just a few tweaks will brighten up the sound and give it the oomph it may need to take it over the top. Good job. - Gael MacGregor

Very smooth mellow hip hop. Here is some laid back hip hop that you can actually relax to. Excellent! - Allure Media Entertainment Group

Very well done! I’m quite surprised and happy to hear clean hip hop lyrics. Refreshing and something I’d use in indie films - I’d like to hear more - the video is a great tool to promote you on socials - Donna Britton Bukevicz of Molly Girl Music, LLC.

I really enjoyed the production on this record. The beat absolutely has that mellow vibe, and takes me to a really chill mindset. I really like the clean lyrics as well, definitely lacking in hip hop today. I thought the hook could possibly be reworked to be a little more catchy. Overall, enjoyed the song and would be interested in hearing more! - The Attic Management Firm

Wow, I really enjoyed this. I don't know if I liked the song or video better, they were both amazing. The video visualized the song perfectly. I think this is something that a lot of people can enjoy. The lyrics were on point, you guys have confidence, and it was shot very well. The angles and effects brought the video to life. It's clear that you guys had fun with this record. It showed in the song and in the video. Great work guys! Keep it up, you have a lot of potential. If you would like this song or any other songs placed in a film or series let me know. Thanks! - Dennis Kelly III of Live Management

Thanks for your submission. This is a dope record. As a former A&R I can spot talent a mile away. You guys have something here as a record and as a group. The beat is memorable, mood setting, and works in many scenarios. I'm sincerely encouraging you guys to keep at this, you have what it takes. Write every day if you're not already, and produce every day no matter what. Get those reps in. In any case, I'm giving this a thumbs up. We're also going to give you a front page feature on our music blog and on our social media. Hopefully that will help give you guys more exposure and give you more fire to keep going. Keep it up! - Beatscore Music Blog

State of Clarity is not merely a band but a brand. 

Using South Carolina beaches and the drive to innovate as inspiration for their unique blend of pop, EDM, and hip-hop, State of clarity is ready to take on the world one venue at a time. 

Composed and produced by two frontmen, Xenn and Xander, their desire is to inspire others with the music they create while also expressing an original sound regardless of influence.

Influences such as Jon Bellion and blackbear have played a crucial role in the inspiration for Xander’s writing. He has conducted his verses and hooks around styles that are similar to blackbear with thought-provoking messages like Jon Bellion.

Xenn draws influence from a much different background after growing up in the hardcore/ metalcore scene. His first productions before uniting with Xander were incredibly heavy, which leads to much needed contrast when composing for State of Clarity. 

They both find inspiration in the catchy choruses of Chainsmokers, the spacey emotive melodies of Illenium, and sincerity and raw passion of singers like Mod Sun.

Using their own fusions of light and dark, State of Clarity creates a dynamic and authentic sound to connect with their steadily growing fan base.
