"Quirky and tight."
"With a brand new album and a Vancouver Island Music Award nomination, local indie folk band West My Friend is going places, and using its own power to get there."
Kyle Wells, Victoria News
"West My Friend provides a great outing on their first full length album, Place, drawing inspiration from many different styles and showing off their ability to play create lush indie, emotional folk, with a bit of roots-twang here and there. The upbeat and downbeat tracks provide a fantastic contrast in sounds that the classically trained band is able to produce. If you wish Mumford and Sons had an accordion and a female lead singer, West My Friend is the band for you."
Jason Stasiuk, Silence As Sound
"Not every band can use the word "ethnobotanist" in a song. Victoria indie folk band West My Friend can."
Rose Jang, Nexus Newspaper
Ron & Heather Truswell, Music For Youth Works Society
"West My Friend offers a sound of true Canadiana achieved via extraordinary musicianship. Eden Oliver's vocals are powerfully eclectic, bridging the gap
"The four members of the band are positive, energetic, hard-working individuals, and above all, they are all extremely talented. Their cheery, warm indie folk songs are a very welcome part of the vibrant Victoria music scene."
Rose Jang, Radio host and Producer, Village 900
"Their live performances are excellent, and very engaging. The band is clearly very well-rehearsed and dedicated to giving their audiences a meaningful and memorable experience."
Genevieve Dale, Radio host, CFUV 101.9 FM
