about the band
Formed in 2019 and hailing from Orange County, CA, West of House is an alternative/indie rock powerhouse, quickly making their mark by connecting with listeners through infectious anthemic melodies and socially conscious lyrics. Their music is haunting and unapologetic, bolstered by the deeply personal and emotional songwriting of singer/guitarist Erick Bieger, the soundscape creation of guitarist Kevin Huynh, the searing leads and backing vocals of Dave Roberts, and the driving rhythm of bassist Lance Bletscher and drummer Tommy Maras.
Drawing from influences spanning alternative and indie rock with flashes of new wave, West of House hit the ground running with their debut single “Fallen” in March of 2020 and haven’t looked back. Their single “Yesterdays” was released on May 1st followed by “Moving Shadows” in late August. Their debut album, “Crescendo of Silence,” will be hitting digital music outlets on September 4th, 2020.
This talented and diverse quintet is quickly making waves on the scene with their sound and style, writing from life experiences and influenced by artists such as Radiohead, The Cure, U2, and Pink Floyd.
West of House creates music that will connect people worldwide and cross-genre lines while provoking real conversations about the world around us and the human condition. They push the envelope with their sonic landscapes and bridge various elements from different musical styles to bring about something familiar yet entirely their own. With every song, West of House draws listeners into the world they create with their storytelling lyricism and relevance.
"We don’t sound like everyone else because we’re not “everyone else,” guitarist Dave Roberts explains. “We’ve all been in different bands that sound like “someone else,” but we wanted to break the mould - that’s what we’re about."
