"Favorite Album?"

Good lord, it's a raw and unflinching look at the joys and horror of love, all to a bittersweet boy/girl vocal, with added cello. Approach with caution. Delicious. - Beth, Lonesome Music

"Album of The Week"

It's like hearing a young Ron Sexsmith or Conor Oberst or Ryan Adams or Elliott Smith, still not ruined by his own or his labels expactations, with a whole bunch of the most beautiful songs. Impressive. You need to hear this! - Patrik Forshage, Hemifran

"Abbotsford Folk Singer Releasing New Cd Tonight"

Jordan T west is only 21 years old and already releasing his second CD.
The Abbotsford singer/songwriter is a bit modest about his work, but he's incredibly happy with the collection of songs on his new album.
"The Cd is fairly acoustic-based," West adds.
He says some call his sound "alt-country" and compare his sound to Ryan Adams and Damien Rice. "But when I have to classify it, I usually define it as folk."
Whatever you call it, the sound can be haunting and touching, and delves into touchy subjects of love and truth.
- The Post- Margaret Jetelina

"Love The Music"

"(he has) the voice of placebo, the lyrics of david grey and the pacing of damien rice with hints of dave matthews. good music!" - Appolo


What I Learned From The Prostitute (LP) (2006)
(Love) An Asylum Amongst The Convulsions (LP) (2007)



Jordan T West was born is the serene town of Kelowna BC, about 4 hours from Vancouver, and has had music in his veins from a young age. He is an artist whose lyrics surround the rubbish of relationships, the truth we so often manipulate , speaking of things you may have tried to forget. Being played anywhere from Vancouver coffee shops to international and internet radio stations his vocals and songwriting are often compared with the likes of Damien Rice and Dave Mathews mixed David Grey. Blatant sounds and beautiful melodies combined into an eclectic acoustic sound that will make you remember, even if you'd rather not. With an honest appreciation for the tragic yet beautiful realities of life, this artist will most definitely make you think, question and occasionally cry, while he continues to smile. His music has been skimming the folk scene from Vancouver to Winnipeg on two separate tours with some pretty twangs and an overly anxious appreciation for artistic truth. With clever timing and some ridiculously impressive vibrato, West may force you to tell your friends, families and foes alike. He is surprisingly rare with a true passion for sound, a love for love, and a lack of the pretension of this time which some of us attempt to avoid. His life appears elegantly through his lyrics, in all of the confusion, beauty, distress and contemplation which comes along with it. At performances he is often paired with piercing violin lines by Nicki Wiebe as well as haunting vocals from Lindy Enns. His music is there. Love, hate, admire or avoid, he will continue to sing. Jordan's hopeful yet analytical view of love, his heart that skims the threatening loss in life, and his fatalistic demeanor may attract or frighten you, or quite possibly force your tired heart to begin to beat once again. “(he is) an artist capable of reaching your heart in just a few notes.” Music Milker Magazine
