This band of old friends (and Berklee School of Music students) have dedicated the past two years of their lives to becoming one of the most recognized Independent names in Pop/Rock. Singer and Songwriter Aaron Bonus, and Guitarist Jon Cornelius have been playing music together for years. And with Nathan Harvey delivering the percussion Jeff Motekaitis the bass lines combined with the final touch of Matt Perreault's rhythm, Westland was born. This all starts with a unique Alternative Pop Rock Sound that crosses multiple genres. Unlike many Pop Rock bands their music contains many elements that capture the listener immediately, which has been proven with over 20,000 copies sold of their independently released CD “Don’t Take It Personal” The unique vocals convey simple but powerful lyrics that the listener easily relates to.
Their full package of melody, chorus & hooks, from driving electric guitars to soul soothing acoustic guitar amazingly attract multiple genres. Unlike many Pop Rock bands their diverse high energy live performance gains your attention immediately. Their above average work ethic and musicianship combined with their love of music and their FAN BASE which they constantly interact with has set them in a position to EXPLODE in 2011. Their debut album “Don’t Take It Personal” is chock full of sing-along choruses and memorable lyrics. This is sure to be an album that will become a soundtrack of your life for the next few years.
A great production team ensured that you will not miss one ounce of the energy and passion the band intended for you, when writing these 10 songs. Keep an eye out, and follow Westland as they continue to tour the U.S. non-stop, until they’ve met each and every one of you fans personally. Five great friends traveling the country together, performing for anyone and everyone that will see them; Westland. "Westland is one of the hardest working groups that I've ever encountered. Their outstanding songs and energetic live shows match their work ethic. This is a group worthy of your attention." --- Eugene Foley / Foley Entertainment, Inc.
