£6 advance / £8 on the door
A London based singer/songwriter Westerman is a 23-year old storyteller – who weaves lyrics that drift between imagined people and real life.
Influenced by John Martyn, Nick Drake and Neil Young, Westerman’s sound alludes to the greats, but the wordsmith pushes classic folk into 201, referencing José González, Eaves and C. Duncan.
There’s an oddly mesmerising quality to Westerman’s music. When the composer released those first few tracks online onlookers were enraptured, caught by the strange yet beguiling nature of his work.
Set to release a full three-track EP on Blue Flowers, the songwriter agreed to work alongside close friend Bullion. The results have a strange, otherworldly quality, that piques interest and keeps you intrigued through every note.
Clash is able to premiere new cut ‘Roads’, and it’s marked by Westerman’s high, keening, and highly emotive vocal. Guitar strings fizzle and crackle, while the backing vocals smear themselves from speaker to speaker in a journey of quiet intensity.
