The Westies (featuring Michael McDermott)

The Westies

Last December a few friends got together in Nashville to record a bunch of songs. Songs about love, betrayal, murder, hope and redemption.

The session started off casually. As the songs and the sound began to unwind an album was realized. Lex Price produced and engineered.

The Westies were born a few months later when a band was put together to play the songs live. The Westies are:

Michael McDermott - Guitar, Vocals
John Pirruccelo – Guitars: Pedal, Lap Steel, and Mandolin
Mike Davidov - Bass
Robert Dicke - Drums
Dan Ingenthron – Piano, Organ
Heather Horton - Fiddle, Vocals

The album will be released in the fall of 2013 and they’ll be playing a few shows here and there leading up to it.

That’s about it for now.

Oh, except that the reference point for the band’s name is not cute little white puppies. It’s the ruthless gang of Irish American punks that ruled and terrorized Hell’s Kitchen in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s.

Call it, “ameri-gangsta-cana.”
