Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
The Far West have an authentically Americana sound that’s been described as something like Waylon’s band jamming with Wilco. In keeping with the W theme one also hears a little Willie, Whiskeytown and Woody, as in Guthrie, in their music. Their songs are highly personal, introspective and original and betray a deep love of American music that runs from ‘Nashville Skyline’ to the Opry of the 1950’s, from the red dirt of South Texas to the streets of Bakersfield. It’s music you can dance to, start a brawl with or cry in your beer over, however the spirit moves you.
