Shortly after releasing the white album, Nick met Andrew Davies, a fellow electronic musician from Madison. The pair began working on music together, and soon expanded on STATE4 by adding Erin Joyner (vocal) and Jerry Nevaiser (drums). This line-up lasted through the beginning of 2001, and after several performances and the recording of the Issues in Monochrome EP, Erin left the band. After searching for several months for a replacement singer, the band decided to add Laura Hillman to the line-up, and soon the band was gigging around Madison and recording their next CD.
Because of the limited opportunity that Madison presented STATE4, the band decided to move to a larger market, and ended up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Shortly after the release of Less Than Happy in July of 2002, Jerry left the band. STATE4 grew around the Twin Cities area, doing gigs at most of the major venues, with the pinnacle being a Saturday night at the 400 Bar in June of 2003. Unfortunately, even with the success the band was seing, personality and creative differences ultimately broke the band up. In early July of 2003, STATE4 was put to rest.
Later, Laura and Nick formed Endless Blue to continue the more subdued and downtempo elements of STATE4. They are currently active in the Minneapolis area.
Andrew teamed up with another Minneapolis artist and drastically changed musical direction with the new group Heliosphere. Pumping out up-tempo future pop and EBM, Heliosphere casts its dark shadow over the opposite end of the electronic music spectrum.
