Because we all die eventually, I feel that it's better to be proactive when it comes to preserving my legacy, questionable though it may be. I present to you this, the Steve Combs Wiki. it is a knowledge base to devoted to my obscene number of songs, ridiculous number of albums, singles, EPs, and compilations, and basically everything else related to me. The problem is, it's a gigantic task for one narcissitic man. I need your help! Yes, you! Go to stevecombsmusic.wikia.com to contribute to my ego-building monument to self!

State Shirt of Los Angeles was recently interviewed on the Music Manumit talk 'cast. He works with sound for pay at his "real job" and—increasingly—his musical labor of love is also returning a profit. A former Oberheim EchoPlex Pro operator, he's grown ingrained with the Circular Labs Moebius software looper as of late because, "It's ridiculous what that thing can do."
State Shirt is currently engrossed in learning to trust and build upon his compositional instincts with more speedy efficiency. His most recent album, Life is Easy, an experiment in improvisational live-looping and hopeless desolation, was released at Bandcamp under an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Int'l license, and is also available here at the FMA.
Each song on the album was written and recorded live in one day—often starting out as an improvisation. Gently traveling from weird ambient swells, ghostly harmonies, funereal rhythms, freakish beatboxing, and disconcerting noises, Life is Easy takes you on a mournful march to the darkest corners of hopelessness.
"Portasoul" was written for Lost Hills, an upcoming State Shirt album to be released in Summer 2015.

Some of my fondest Studio 11 memories date back to the late nineties when studio manager Dan Scalpone and I would embark on our yearly trip to Cannes, France to attend Midem, the world music convention. Here we would meet with labels worldwide on behalf of Chicago musicians to sort out licensing and label deals. Notably, I remember meeting with the Donato brothers of Italy in respect to their Full Time music label and catalog. As innovators in the late wave of disco and early house music, they emphasized that there always stood a unique and deep connection with Chicago and Italo music. Kindly, they had gifted us their entire catalog on CD's notably all "The Very Best Of Full Time" volumes. While building the second recording studio at Studio 11 in Chicago we were limited to a CD Boombox on the construction site. Needless to say, the whole Full Time catalog became the music of choice and I recall hearing the classic "Spacer Woman" by Charlie over and over. Upon attending the early shows in Chicago by Studio 11 friends and musical sensation Glass Lux, I was blown away by their supercharged cover version of "Spacer Woman" and thrilled to hear the fabled Chicago Italo connection come back to life.
The latest Glass Lux single "I'm A Machine" was mixed down at Studio 11 in late 2014 as a re-release of the bands original demo release. The song is an infectiously catchy ride through an electronic whirlwind.
