Stan Kilkes is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer. He has played in many bands and genres including rock, blues, country and more. ' After being effected by 911, I became a Bush supporter afraid of the terror threat. On hearing the 2005 state of the union speech where he lied about social security being in crisis, I then examined our government and found great disappointment and worse. This inspired me to write the songs that appear on America's Bleeding. I sing, play guitars, harmonica, percussion, violin, mandolin, flutes, bass and produced / engineered the CD. I hope you enjoy my music, it is truly done with great feeling.'
