"Westley Horner Smashes It!"


THE Half Moon in Putney has seen it all over the years.

Hendrix, Rod and the Faces, the Who, the Stones and the Kinks.

It's some list.

The venue has occasionally been threatened with closure over the years,been through some lean times.

So then folks we should thank our lucky stars that it remained in business to allow Westley Horner to show what he is all about.

To say that Westley enjoys playing here is really missing the point. This venue enjoys hosting him and his quickly multiplying band of fans coming from all over London would agree.

The three piece ensemble combine the best in groove-driven bass lines and prisitine percussion which goes to emphasise the songwriting capability of this supremely confident and talented musician from West London.

The fans, they come.

They tell their friends and for a generation of 20-somethings, they are for the first time spirited to a time when guitar hero's held court.

A time when singer-guitarist superstars ruled the roost.

It inspires those who haven't discovered their folks record collections to dust off their iPods, Google the hell out of Neil Young, The Faces and the Stones.

It inspires them to turn on and get plugged in to rock n roll, played as it should be, but with an original and contemporary flavour for with Westley Horner, for every Neil Young record in his collection, there is a mid-period Manics one too.

It is good time music with a darker, seedier side to boot.

There is no-one currently out there that combines a super-street smart outlook with a rock n roll sensibility and this must mean the future looks bright for our new rock legend and saviour of the guitar.

Very bright indeed.

Still working on that hot first release.



Working with Westley Horner is like training a Dobermann puppy to become a junkyard guard dog. Boundless energy, endless enthusiasm and total commitment to the job in hand topped with youthful boyish charm but... with an underlying sensation that at any moment, he might bare his teeth and bite your hand off. Westley is a brawler – giving you the blues whether you want them or not.
Westley Horner is and are: Westley himself vocals/songs and guitar, James on bass and Paul White on Drums/Percussion. A 3 piece guitar, bass and drums outfit from West London, England, that take a refreshing break from the norm yet maintain a traditional “rock n blues n soul” soundtrack that has been garnered a cult following around infamous venues like the Half Moon, Putney, London for the last two years.

With more than a nod to the great guitar troubadours of the 70’s and 80’s and all due respect is being placed to those that in turn influenced Westley.
However don’t for a minute think that he takes the lazy option. His song writing gives him an edgy originality combined with a familiarity that keep his audiences growing and coming back for more.

Westley lives, eats and breathes song-writing and truly believes in the kind of music that lifts,moves and ultimately involves his audience.

His heroes would be Neil Young, Dylan and Marriott but Westley compounds these influences into one explosive force that electrifies the room with a punch-in-the-face take on the traditional sounds of the 70’s , with the backing of his groove heavy rhythm section.The Westley Horner experience is one of hooks, grooves, soul n roll, guitar-tinged bliss and infectious rock songwriting which is guaranteed to leave you speechless.
