Westpoint


In August of 2004, Westpoint cemented their current line up with the addition of singer Mordy Harroch, ending a grueling audition process that had spanned 14 months and over 50 auditions. The next several months would see Westpoint both refining songs from a large backlog of material and incorporating Mordy's new compositions into the band's regular repertoire. Formed in early 2000, the band's five years together have seen them develop their performing and songwriting to an exceptionally professional and world-class level. Read more on Last.fm

Formed in early 2000, the band's five years together have seen them develop their performing and songwriting to an exceptionally professional and world-class level. It is this un-paralleled determination, love for the art and craft of rock and roll, and drive for success that has allowed Westpoint to remain continually ahead of their contemporaries in a time when so many bands are merely a flash in the pan. Through endless live performance and touring, Westpoint has been able to develop their performances into an energy-driven, yet musically mature display of passion and technique that draws the audience in and refuses to let go. They have played a score of Southern Ontario's most revered and legendary venues including: Lee's Palace, The Horseshoe Tavern, The Reverb, The 360, The Drake Hotel, The Underground, Big Bucks Mountain Lodge and The Casbah. Westpoint has also received critical acclaim from Southern Ontario rock radio.

In 2002, the band entered the 97.7 New Rock Search, reaching the semi-finals along with only 15 other bands (including The Trews and The Miniatures) from over 200 entries. The following year, Toronto's Edge 102.1 would also take notice, selected by radio personality Barry Taylor as one of 3 bands to compete in the Edge Extreme Band Slam. 2005 was a marquee year for Westpoint. The band's self-produced EP, "Love and Comfort in a Time of Confuse," succeeded in increasing both the band’s fan base and credibility within the Canadian independent music scene. The demand for Westpoint performances also rose to new heights with the band playing more local markets than ever before. 2006 is already off to a promising start for Westpoint.

The group, who remain unsigned, has completed some of its strongest material yet and the demand for their performances continues to rise. The band plans to hit the studio once again and to tour out of their home province for the first time in order to foster their ever-increasing fan base. Read more on Last.fm.
