State Shirt is Ethan Tufts, born and raised in a small Massachusetts town and currently working out of a bedroom studio deep within the sprawl of Los Angeles. He has become known for his atmospheric and imaginative songwriting, ghostly harmonies, and warm bedroom production that mashes up electronic and acoustic sounds over hand-crafted loops.
“Imagine flooding a cathedral from floor to rafters, and then being able to watch the ghosts of prayers swim about.”
“The entire production sounds like it was recorded beneath the lofty stone arches of a Gothic cathedral: polyphonic choral breakdowns, echoes & reverbs & strange twists of sound, and the airy, atmospheric wash of one thousand angels murmuring in the east transept. That’s State Shirt, homie.”
Every State Shirt song is available with a “Buy or Steal” option—support the artist or download for free, your choice, no guilt either way.
All of his songs are open source, providing raw materials for hundreds of remix artists to create new works based on his source tracks.
