PWEST


“My name’s Peter West and um, I’m 21 years old, I’m from Laguna Beach, California- South Laguna Beach to be specific,” but what makes West stand out from other 21-year-olds living in Laguna Beach, is that he unabashedly goes by “Mr. PWEST”- and brings music from polar opposite genres, like indie and hip-hop, and harvests them into ripe, luscious beats you wont regret. From hip-hop artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Jay-Z, Andre' 3000 , and Snoop Dogg Read more on Last.fm
“My name’s Peter West and um, I’m 21 years old, I’m from Laguna Beach, California- South Laguna Beach to be specific,” but what makes West stand out from other 21-year-olds living in Laguna Beach, is that he unabashedly goes by “Mr. PWEST”- and brings music from polar opposite genres, like indie and hip-hop, and harvests them into ripe, luscious beats you wont regret. From hip-hop artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Jay-Z, Andre' 3000 , and Snoop Dogg, to indie artists such as Andrew McMahon, The Black Keys, The Growlers, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, West has formed a perfectly calculated and customized unique sound that is all his own. A full time student, majoring in political science, and also working retail, West has always had a passion for hip-hop, and could relate to its message. “Oh I love hip-hop music. I really dig the whole message that they’re talking about,” said West “I identify more with the underground hip-hop artists, who preach about the way the world is, and how people’s goals and aspirations are not necessarily where they should be- it should be on getting in tune with yourself, and mind elevation, and getting yourself smarter, and more prepared for the trials and tribulations of life.” West grew up on classic rock and pop punk.

More recently he got into indie folk and a bit of lo-fi electronic. A friend of West’s cultivated his natural talent for rapping and the rest is history. “Him and I were like best friends- he rapped a lot, and he kinda taught me how to rap, and what it’s about. So we’d like freestyle in the car for hours on end.” This friend’s untimely death along with another close friend’s death deepened West’s convictions and affirmed his calling to the world of music making.

“After they both passed away I was like it’s not really much of an option anymore. I felt like I have to do this music thing because they would if they could, and would want me to do that. If it makes it, it makes it, and if it doesn't it doesn't. I could care less at this point because I’m doing what I love.” As a solo artist and member of COAST (Collective Operations Aligning Supernatural Thought) West has shared his music at Zabumba in Venice Beach, TrashPretty in Laguna Beach, Winstons in Hollywood, The Vanguard in Hollywood, Scottsdale Studios in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Show and Prove Labs in Scottsdale, Arizona (courtesy of Walking Stick/Native Thinking Productions) and numerous house parties.

The moment West takes the stage, he is overcome by a flow of energy empowering his soul, convincing him that he is doing what he was made to do. Regardless of the fun that West experiences as a musician and performer, he has an unshakable vision. “I want to change the face of music. I don't want to be the next big thing I want to create the next big thing, the next type of music beyond limits and above anybody expectations." Read more on Last.fm.
