About the Artist

Lead singer and songwriter Troy McKubre has created a sound that is fast winning fans all over the planet.

The lush dynamic range of hard rock, metal and acoustic music incorporates many new sounds and electronic influences.


In April 2008 McKubre traveled to Los Angeles to work with super engineer/producer Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Filter, Breaking Benjamin, 30 Seconds to Mars, Sevendust) in the legendary 'Mix Room' studios.


The pair mixed two songs from the album including the third single "Tonight" which has just been released to radio and TV. "Tonight" has reached the Top 20 on Juice TV's most requested chart and is currently climbing the NZ Top 40 and Rock radio charts.


In November 2007 Solstate were awarded a Phase Four album grant from NZ On Air. Solstate's debut single released to radio in 2007 was "Alright Now" (featuring Boh Runga) and it reached #7 in the NZ Top 40 Radio Charts. The next single "Against & With" also charted well and videos for these songs also received airplay on NZ music TV.


McKubre has enlisted Tristan Reilly (drums) and Dan Insley (bass) plus Zorran Mendonsa and Darren Crowe (guitars) to help him transform the album live. In January 2008 Solstate were chosen to play Big Day Out
