Richard Mekdeci Quote

“emPower Music & Arts was very excited to welcome John an Kathy Stringer to the 11th annual Posi Music Festival and Posi Awards in February. John’s charismatic and infectious zeal created fans even before he took the stage. When he did, he mesmerized an audience filled with amazing musicians and songwriters as well as fans from all around the country. John is a world class songwriter, singer and musician and has the true heart of a Posi Music artist contributing his talents to worthy causes and proactively working to create a better world.  See you next year John and Kathy!”

You can now download my past discography with my former rock band, State of Man (formerly JAD), when you play the albums and hit the download button in the album players below the video player.  Simply opt-in and download each song you like.

In case you haven’t heard of JaD or State of Man, this was the independent rock band that scored a top 10 Billboard single and toured the world on our own record label. Download the entire discography below and check out some of the crazy State of Man antics around the world on YouTube here:

Both Sides of the Story

Lose Your Mind

The band formed on New Year’s Eve, 1999, under the name JaD (pronounced “jade”) as a Hard Rock band and later changed the name to State of Man when we began writing more top 40 style Rock songs.  Once my son was born and the economy took a turn in 2009, I stopped touring with the band to stay home with my family and we (the band) eventually disbanded.

I spoke to James Beale, the bass player, recently and we decided to give the music away since a lot of people have been requesting where to buy it.

I hope you enjoy the music and, if you haven’t already, don’t forget to check out my debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light,” here:
