The Far West
Los Angeles’ The Far West came together in 2010, thanks in part to a Craigslist ad featuring nothing but a link to a live clip of Waylon Jennings on YouTube. Each of the five members left other bands for a common goal: to make music inspired by artists such as Gram Parsons, Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, and The Band. They released their self titled debut album in 2010 and have been consistently growing and selling out shows in the West ever since.
Their second album, Any Day Now, was released last year and is steeped in alt country with a few flourishes.
