MORE ABOUT THE WESTWARD TRAIL
The Westward Trail are determined to proove that you CAN successfully combine rock guitars with electro-pop.
During early 2003, Jake Dempsey and Joe Wawrzyn (soon to be called The
Westward Trail) began sketching ideas for songs with two guitars and a drum
machine in the shared bedroom of their small Boston apartment. They eschewed
a traditional rhythm section, complementing their penchant for guitar
interplay and vocal harmony with glitchy walls of beats and jittery
synthesizer lines c/o a G4 PowerBook. Using synthpop, indie rock, and
hip-hop as influences rather than blueprints, The Westward Trail bring the
sweet and the heat - catchy hooks and body-moving beats. As a performing
unit they have built a solid following in the clubs of Boston, making up for
their slim roster with energy, charm, and sweat.
