Doug Gleicher and Jesse Fink of Upper West infuse pop and hip hop to create a sound they describe as "new age hip pop." With original production from Jesse and songwriting from Doug, Upper West has quickly emerged into both the high school and college scene nationally. After the release of their first extended project, "West Side Stories" the group was featured in The Huffington Post in an article entitled, "What You Should Be Listening to Right Now: Cooler than Sam Adams Edition." With a national fanbase much due to features on websites such as GoodMusicAllDay.com, BroBible.com, VibeToThis.com, FreshNewTracks.com, and TheKollection, the duo recently capped off their first spring tour playing shows in cities such as St. Louis, Pennsylvania, SXSW with Flying Lotus in Texas, Virginia as well as their May 2012 headlining event at Sullivan Hall in New York City. Upper West is currently working on their second EP which is set to be released later this summer.


The group has one released mixtape, "West Side Stories" in February of 2012. The project was distributed on GoodMusicAllDay.com, FreshNewTracks.com, TheKollection.com, SunsetInTheRearview.com, VibeToThis.com as well as several other notable music blogs.
