West of Malbay is known for its unique blend of voices, foot-stomping rhythms, jam band musicality, and soulful Irish prose. Their style draws from a wide range of influences such as The Band, Mumford and Sons, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, Tracy Chapman, Jack Johnson, and Flogging Molly. A rising band born and raised in Sonoma County, California, their original material showcases a gritty collection of stories inspired by the magic of the California  Coast. The young band’s coastal folk-rock music brings a vibrant and vulnerable energy to the stage through its new, yet familiar sound.
