-WE ARE THE WESTERN SONS-

We started The Western Sons when Garrett, Tyler and I started playing together at the University of South Florida. It was bed-room musicianship. Songwriting. Growing - and finding a sound that represented all of us. Kyle started playing drums with us because we wanted to bring our songs to life and play live - been our drummer ever since. In many ways, "Frontiers" represents a question. It represents the, "Maybe if I can get to some far off place, it'll be better?". Whether or not some far off place can fix all our problems, our first record always seemed similarly unreachable. We were lucky enough to meet a producer that believed in the music we wanted to make. We were hungry enough to put it all together. Hopeful that it would actually represent us... and beyond excited when it was finally finished. At the same time, we knew "Frontiers" was far from finished. For us, music has always seemed like a destination with no map. Like a place you could reach, if only there was a road that took you there. "Frontiers" was made to be shared. Whether it be on your phone screen or in the backyard of a house party, it was made to take you to that place. It was made for that someone who's searching. That someone who's still curious. That someone who isn't afraid of the outcome... because at least they got to explore.
