El West is the new project led by Bryant Powell, featuring dynamic, melody-driven vocals and energetic performances. Singing since the age of six, Bryant always had a deep connection with music. Over the years, this bond has developed into dynamic composition, truthful lyrics and a distinctive energetic performance. His classical operatic training creates an intense ebb and flow in every performance.
El West has been inspired by bands such as Broken Social Scene, Radiohead, Elbow, The Roots, and many others to create songs about overcoming struggles, bettering yourself through hard work and obstacles, and abandoning fear. When creating his songs, Bryant pulls themes of betrayal from his own experiences (knife), his dreams (Dictionary Queen), and the world we live in (Identical Streets).
The new EP “Glass Key” is available now on iTunes.
