Mike West live @ Singleshot!
Mike West has a reputation as an honest and engaging performer. Beginning his musical journey as the frontman and guitarist for a thrash metal band, Mike traded in his electric guitar for an acoustic and began paying homage to his love of delta blues, folk and country while remaining true to his metal and rock roots.
Mike has had the pleasure of opening for American artist Shawn James on his first UK tour, warming up crowds in Newcastle, Leeds, Nottingham and Birmingham, earning fans with his down to earth manner and reliable songs and gaining traction within each city as well as supporting diverse artists such as Tony Wright (Terrorvision), Michele Stodart (Magic Numbers) and The Pierce Brothers. Mike appeals to head bangers and folk twangers whether he is playing Latitude Festival or PentreFest.
Mike West is an honest, open musician constantly improving through his song writing and live performances, developing a unique blend of optimistic and realistic world views with a driving rhythm of acoustic music that pays tribute to his array of influences while sounding unlike any other acoustic act around. Currently touring Europe and recording his first full length record, Mike West is ready to establish himself as one of the U.K's top Alt Country artists.
