ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Comfort & Soul"
Angela Cruz - Encore Magazine (Wilmington, NC)

"He incorporates rootsy, acoustic folk with a bluesy, almost hip-hop-like sense of rhythm. West is a funky, acoustic pop songsmith with a flare for lyricism and rich melodies."
Matthew Godbey - Post & Courier (Charleston, SC)

"West's clean guitar and polished voice feel like warm sunshine through a car window."
Andrew Ritchey - Independent Weekly (Raleigh, NC)

"A Rhythmic adventure... a light rail through beat town... you just may get distracted and miss your stop.".
Henry Hallet of 'SIMPLE FOLK' on KXCI 91.3 (Tucson, AZ)

" He brings smoothness to the singer/songwriter genre that creates something a bit more transitory than simple emotive storytelling."
Thomas D. Szewc - Indie-Music.com

"Uplifting. A great, warm sound."
Beth Clyman - KINK fm102 (Portland, OR)

" the Northwest or Southeast? ...the beauty that merges between the regions comes in the form of music. Sounds of sultry guitar riffs and laid-back vibes..."
- Shea Carver - Encore Magazine

SHINE is Carolina born performer Will West's first full production album.

Recorded at 8-Ball Studio with Rob Stroup during the spring and summer of 2006. Featuring Bob Soper on fiddle, Noah Peterson on Soprano Sax & Jess Kreider on guest vocals.

Matthew "PappaSmurf"

Great CD Filled with all great songs not just 1 or 2.
Great tracks on here none of them just filler. This has been in my CD player consistantly for 2 weeks, and I have someone who wants to use track 7 as intro music. Definitly glad I bought it which usually isn't the case after hearing the whole album.

I'm a fan... thanks !!!
I found Sunny Daze on a friend's Myspace page. Then on a wild hair I ordered the album. What a ride!!!
The songs move from a smooth jazzy sound (love the sax) to an uptempo bluegrass style. Positive lyrics and great music. I'm a fan !!!

Enjoyable, fantastically mellow listen
Will West's sound has matured since his first CD, "Reconstruction", which was also a fantastic listen - I think he's definitely found his vibe this time around and sounds way more comfortable here. Hats off to you, my friend, I dig this CD & am thinking about buying it for everyone as a holiday gift!

OMG!!!
I believe this album to be one of his greatest works thus far. Will is always growing into this force to be reckoned with, his music inspires me to sing and play outside the box. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. Thanks for all the love Will West!
