A fusion of folk, bluegrass, pop, jazz and other wonderful weirdness....
Will West creates a comfortable vibe and energy with his friendly fusion sounds, and has just started getting into the NW Festival Circuit with recent performances at Wildwood Musicfest, Juniper Jam, Pinefest, Brewcamp & Manzanita Music Festival. He has shared the stage with Ryan Montbleau, Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, Vintage Trouble, The Lumineers, Fruition, Dirty Revival, Scott Pemberton, Cascade Crescendo, Poor Man's Whiskey, The Druthers, Lewi Longmire, and many more over the past 8 yrs.
The son of a fiddle player, Will West grew up in rural eastern North Carolina. Inspired by his parent's vast record collection, he began playing guitar when he was 11 years old. First finding a love for Old-Time Blues and Heavy Metal music.
In 2002, he loaded up his guitar, his dog and a handful of original tunes and moved to Portland, Oregon. From his humble beginnings busking on downtown sidewalks and exploring open-mics, Will West has been on a steady rise in this rich Northwest music scene.
Will & his band, "The Friendly Strangers," recently wrapped up their highly anticipated studio album called "Transitions," which was due for release in Summer/Fall 2019.
