In This Place
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:
If you’re familiar with my debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light,” you may enjoy following the lyrics I recently posted here.
Also, if you bought a physical CD (or digital copy directly from me here), then you also have a bonus track that contains a special link to more downloadable music. I’ve recently updated the page to contain two more songs for your enjoyment! Don’t know what I’m talking about, listen to the bonus track and visit the url to find out.
FYI, iTunes and other online retailers wouldn’t allow me to distribute the bonus track because it mentioned the url. That’s apparently against their policies.

Musical Support at Unity North
Though I have a pending event elsewhere Sunday morning, if you are able, join Bob at Unity North for their service and a book signing after. Bob will provide musical support at the Sunday service and will integrate his music throughout Cathy Massengale McCleskey’s book signing at the Holy Grounds Cafe following the service. This is Cathy’s first book release. Rev Richard Burdick will welcome all visitors to the service… but if you can’t make it, please come out and join us in celebrating Cathy’s book launch at 2pm! (Holy Grounds Cafe is downstairs at Unity North Atlanta)
Kathy and I are super excited to return to Hillside International Truth Center this Sunday where I’ll be joining the service and offering copies of my debut solo CD afterward to sign.
Over a decade ago, after we visited Agape in California, we came back to Atlanta searching for a place like it and found out Hillside was considered Agape’s “sister-church.” We visited and fell in love with the people, Dr. Barbara King, and the music! I’m so grateful to return and perform with William Delaney, Jarvis and the King Singers this Sunday and I’ll be signing copies of my debut CD after the service. You can purchase the CDs at the book store the day of the service.
Service starts promptly at 9:30am where I’ll open the service with music and do two more selections during – one of which will be with the King Singers and it’s one of my favorites that they do, so I know the divine will not fail to show up and show out!
If you are ready to feel the presence of God in a powerful way, join us for what will be a service of healing, love and light!
I’m delighted to share with you all that today, the Atlanta-based organization, Special Needs Certified (SNC) announced they have selected “That’s Love” as the organization’s official song. Woohoo!
Read the full press release here and/or click the image below to go to the SNC Facebook post to show your support by giving them a like:
As the Our Story page on the organization’s website explains, Special Needs Certified, works to “educate businesses, cities, churches, volunteers and other organizations to better understand, engage with and serve people with special needs.”
My hope has been that the music would support others in spreading love and light just like SNC and founder, Lindsey Turner, have been doing for some time now.
I’m truly grateful the music so many of you helped me record via our Kickstarter campaign is able to help spread their message of love and acceptance and I look forward to continuing supporting their work.
If you are an individual, business, city, church, volunteer or part of another organization that you think could benefit from learning how to better engage special needs families, please visit https://www.specialneedscertified.com to learn more.
If you are interested in licensing a song from the album for your organization or an upcoming project, contact us here to work out details!
