Divus Julius presents…Westerman

Londoner Will Westerman, records mountainous synth-pop songs under the name Westerman. Before he met an electronic producer and decided to change course, he used to make folk music, but his songwriting has remained candid and hearty. His recent ArkEP as well as singles like “Easy Money,” “Edison” and “Confirmation” feature nimble production, reverb-laden guitars, spellbinding synths and rich vocals. Unlike other more danceable synth-pop, Westerman’s songs are meditative, transportive and introspective, and they exude a discernable, soothing wisdom. Westerman played his first U.S. shows last year and will make an appearance at SXSW next month.
