West My Whom?

Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, West My Friend has an acoustic blend of instruments and three-part harmonies that challenges the conventions of popular music. The band features pure and thrillingly elastic vocals with catchy arrangements of guitar, mandolin, and accordion that draw from jazz, classical, folk, and pop influences. Inspired by artists such as Owen Pallett, the Barenaked Ladies, Joanna Newsom, the Beach Boys, The Decemberists, and the Punch Brothers, and forged from a sonically adventurous acoustic music scene on Canada’s west coast, West My Friend is proving to be a key part of a new generation of grassroots folk music. Read the full bio here.

Music Everywhere

In a world of increasing disconnection through digitization, it becomes even more important for people to gather and celebrate through the arts. West My Friend takes this impulse further than the expected: they perform music everywhere.

Specializing in performing in strange and unusual spaces, West My Friend is known for showing up wherever you’d least expect to hear live music. They’ve performed in a 100-year-old streetcar on a high level bridge, a nudist resort, a sailboat, a yoga studio, a hot springs, a hayloft in a 100-year-old barn, a pet food store, many farms, a lawn bowling club, libraries, bookstores, museums, a former movie theatre, while basking in the warmth of a Swedish “Valborg” bonfire, and more!

From trees to boats and libraries to living rooms, West My Friend wants to hear from you about your unusual space. Let’s expand our definition of a stage and create an evening your audience won’t soon forget. Contact us to set up a performance today!
