"West My Friend is a rare gem that brings together the best of so many things... there's echoes of old world klezmer music, anthems that soar like Broadway show tunes, and vocal harmonies that would be envy of the best old-time bluegrass bands. It's all wrapped up with beautiful mandolin and accordion notes that have me hitting the repeat button."

West My Friend released their first full-length album Place in 2012, and it soon garnered multiple award nominations (including “Roots Album of the Year” and “Song of the Year” at the Vancouver Island Music Awards). Their second album, When The Ink Dries, was released in March 2014 and was recently nominated in the Canadian Folk Music Awards for the Oliver Schroer “Pushing The Boundaries” Award, in the Vancouver Island Music Awards for "Roots/Folk Album of the Year", as well as receiving the Readers’ Choice award for “Best New Sound of 2014” at Sleeping Bag Studios. The album ranges in scope from intimate moments, featuring the four core musicians of the group, to rich orchestral arrangements that showcase the maturity, musicianship, and multi-instrumental abilities of each member. This is combined with guest musicians drawn from everywhere from the Victoria Symphony to Buena Vista Social Club. The record is a significant step forward for West My Friend; the group’s collaboration with Grammy award-winning producer Joby Baker (Alex Cuba, Cowboy Junkies) and Juno award-winner David Travers-Smith (The Wailin’ Jennys, Oh Susannah) provides a strong underpinning of experience in folk-roots music for this promising young band. http://www.westmyfriend.com
