"The album (Sunshine) brings a blend of musical flavors, adding new dimensions to their well known and well loved acoustic/folk sound."
"The new album Sunshine, will surprise and delight. Yes, the mandolins and banjos are still there, but so are several unexpected sounds."
“Nominated for 'Best Male Artist'”
“Nominated for Album of the Year 'Take this Moment' by Will West & The Friendly Strangers.”
“The Friendly Strangers are a formidable ensemble, boasting fiddles and banjos and mandolins, all guided by West's casual ringleading.”
“A favorite of those Delta Blues/Folk lovin' Types. Never performing a song the same way twice. This crooner is a storyteller with a soft touch. Check him out.”
“Uplifting. A warm, comfortable sound.”
“A Rhythmic adventure... a light rail through beat town... you just may get distracted and miss your stop.”
“Comfort & Soul”
“He brings smoothness to the singer/songwriter genre that creates something a bit more transitory than simple emotive storytelling.”
“West's clean guitar and polished voice feel like warm sunshine through a car window. ”
“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. ”
