Home State

Home State is a pop-rock band from New York City comprised of David Berliner (percussion), Alex Friedlander (vocals), Matt Gralla (guitar, keys), and Jordan Glaser (bass, guitar, keys).

David Berliner, Alex Friedlander and Matt Gralla met at the University of Pennsylvania and played in the same music scene before moving to New York City to pursue their life-long dreams of working in finance and tech (just kidding). The stars aligned one fateful summer day in 2015, and the three teamed up to form Home State and pursue their shared passion more seriously. Long-time friend Jordan Glaser joined to solidify the band in 2017.

Home State’s first single “Without Your Love” has been featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds & United States Viral 50 playlists and can be found on all major music platforms. In just over a month, the song was streamed over 100K times across platforms. Home State’s music is rooted in rock, but is also heavily influenced by pop, R&B, and alternative music. They have been compared to Bob Moses, Chet Faker and Maroon 5.
