Bio

It has been said that music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent. In spite of this, culture has attempted to supplement the essence of music for mere words; making it a small pill that is easy to swallow and over-medicates the masses. This has resulted in a watered-down, predictable scene where genres define artists and not the other way around. Be that as it may, there are the precious fighting few who oppose the trend; those who refuse to let the music make them and foster the fight for creativity. West End is such as these who have committed themselves to writing, performing, and experiencing music that is inspired directly from their own life journey.

This rock quintet hailing from the Atlanta area brings a fresh-faced rock sound and experience from an otherwise predictable and seemingly over-saturated scene. Combining elements of melodic indie rock as well as intense vocal styling and driving, emotive composition, West End’s music depicts an innate desire to live life above its means; above the normal hum-drum that we have made into our lives. After several attempts at finding their voice by means of a previous EP and demo recordings, their new independently released EP, “What’s Left Unsaid between Friends”, holds much promise. Full of allusions to various relationships, “What’s Left Unsaid between Friends” seems to be most truthfully titled as it dives lyrically into matters which most of us think of but often never say. “We love writing music that’s honest,” says guitarist Derek Miller. “To us, there is nothing better than having an outlet for being able to articulate things that no normal conversation ever could.”

The very heart of those that make up West End may be surmised in the song "In Terms of Forever" both musically and lyrically. The music itself ranges from poppy verses to a driving chorus and is full of intricacy. "We all strive to live each day in light of eternity," explains singer Ben Smith. "We know that we mess up all the time, but we still do our best to go through each day as if it impacts forever. That’s what gives us hope to wake up every morning, knowing that eternity is something to live for."
