Event Description

West My Friend is now looking forward to their third album, which will be recorded this January on Mayne Island with the extraordinary producer David Travers-Smith. Recording an album can be an expensive endeavour, but it's also a major way to put money back into the local arts economy. To aid with this, West My Friend is hosting the 2nd Annual "West My Friendraiser", an initiative to raiser funds (and friends) for this special recording opportunity! There will be a silent auction, bake sale, full West My Friend Concert, and more. Check out the online portion of the fundraiser with CD pre-orders and more here: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/d13zlf/ab/b5JFP6

West My Friend's second album, When The Ink Dries, was released in March 2014 and was recently nominated in the Canadian Folk Music Awards for the Oliver Schroer “Pushing The Boundaries” Award, in the Vancouver Island Music Awards for "Roots/Folk Album of the Year", as well as receiving the Readers’ Choice award for “Best New Sound of 2014” at Sleeping Bag Studios. The album ranges in scope from intimate moments, featuring the four core musicians of the group, to rich orchestral arrangements that showcase the maturity, musicianship, and multi-instrumental abilities of each member. This is combined with guest musicians drawn from everywhere from the Victoria Symphony to Buena Vista Social Club. The record is a significant step forward for West My Friend; the group’s collaboration with Grammy award-winning producer Joby Baker (Alex Cuba, Cowboy Junkies) and Juno award-winner David Travers-Smith (The Wailin’ Jennys, Oh Susannah) provides a strong underpinning of experience in folk-roots music for this promising young band.
