Five of the Pacific Northwest's finest musicians began joining forces back in 2014 in search of creating a sound all their own. Out West was born, and fast forward a few years later, they've released an album comprised of new takes on old classics, and some fresh originals with a sound all their own. They've gigged extensively around Portland, Oregon and are known to travel well beyond, in search of a great party! Having played countless shows in local bars, backyards and major festivals, they're comfortable in a variety of situations and bring a good time with them wherever they go!
