West of Here is a GMA Award winning, Positive Alternative Rock band from Edmonton, Canada. Unlike most music groups, the founding members of West of Here all grew up under one roof. Three brothers Matt, Taylor, and Tristan rock their own brand of catchy choruses, edgy vocals, and uplifting guitar tones that soar through halls, churches, and festivals, all across Canada.
With a focus of writing positive, thought provoking lyrics their intentions are to inspire people to live a life of purpose, and meaning that extends beyond the ordinary. With songs intentionally written to move you emotionally and physically, their upbeat live show brings people together and lifts the audience up into a feel good, musical experience they won't soon forget.
In 2018 the band of brothers were nominated for seven GMA Covenant Awards, and we very honoured to receive the award for the 2018 Rock Song of The Year for their song "The Other Side". The radio single also won first place in the Christian category of the USA songwriting competition.
Since the release of their debut album West of Here has been playing at events large and small. In 2016 West of Here joined the likes of Switchfoot, Michael W. Smith, Tenth Avenue North and others on the stage of Canada's largest christian music festival No Greater Love. The band of brothers is excited to announce, on Saturday August 10, 2019 they will once again be hitting the No Greater Love Stage.
With more new music on the horizon for 2019 West of Here aims to make an even bigger impact on audiences across North America.
