Westerman is a rising London singer-songwriter whose latest single was born out of a chance conversation. Ideas for this song came about after he overheard his sister mispronouncing the word ‘misanthrope,’ and this inspired a glorious outpouring of fresh ideas.
To date there is not much known about this new artist but what is evident from his first two releases is that there is something special going on here.
He has already demonstrated his craft at writing through two wonderfully constructed songs, whilst his love for word play and story telling shines through in his lyrical content and wonderful folk-based melodies.
Positioning himself somewhere amongst José González, C Duncan and Eaves, part of Westerman’s charm lies in his ability to create a powerful sound in such a gentle manner. The mellow strum of an acoustic guitar aligns perfectly with soft, dreamy vocals, but there is also strength in its delivery and this leaves an instant and lasting impression.
Westerman’s debut EP is due on March 18th, in the meantime I can strongly recommend a listen to first single ‘Harvard’, find that here.
