"West Hammock"

"West Hammock is a wicked band! Ever since I had a sneak peek at their track "Sea Shell" it has been in my regular rotation. As soon as I received the rest of the EP I was blown away by the catchy melodies, wicked vocals and over all raw talent the guys have showcased. West Hammock is something I, myself, am going to be keeping my eye on. With their unique sound and hard work they are already a strong addition to the amazing talent coming out of Canada. I can't wait to see what is next in store for West Hammock."

“This stellar band is nothing short of amazing live and in recording. West Hammock puts on a show that is memorable and hooks you with their catchy melodies. They bring that same enthusiasm in their new 2014 EP called “The River”, where the light and beach sounds of an acoustic guitar meets the uniqueness of the accordion. This band is down to earth, enjoys and loves every one of their fans and really encompasses what a band should be in 2014 and years to come.”

"West Hammock"

"I have been following West Hammock for approximately 2 years and have seen a tremendous growth in their performances and song writing. A highlight for me was seeing them perform in the Port Perry Canada Celebration as one of the main acts. This unique band with their barefoot, cool indie folk style are gaining a loyal following and with performances at the Horseshoe and Lee’s Palace are sure to increase their popularity amongst fans of this type of music. Their first CD is a real treat with sure hits "Sea Shell" and "Broken Trail" leaving you feeling satisfied and happy."

       West Hammock is a young group of musicians who have become increasingly relevant, not only within the Port Perry and Oshawa communities, but also on the inner city level as well. West Hammock consists of Hunter Sheridan on lead vocals and electric guitar, Sean Thornton on piano and backup vocals, and Sam O’Connor on bass guitar. The band released their debut EP in 2014 titled, “The River”, which was followed up by an Ontario tour that featured shows with the JUNO award winning band, The Strumbellas. Two years later, with the release of their second EP titled, “Wanderlost”, the band reached new levels of local success and regularly appeared on local television shows and newspapers. In the summer of 2016, West Hammock embarked on a month long cross Canada summer tour to support the release of their new album. The tour was kicked off by a sold out show at the Oshawa Music Hall with The Strumbellas and a sold out headliner album release show at The Moustache Club. While frontman, Hunter Sheridan, isn’t recording with West Hammock, he keeps busy with his solo project, October Wild. Keep an eye out for the debut EP, which was recorded and filmed live at Old Flame Brewing Co. in Port Perry, ON, back in the summer of 2015.

West Hammock plans to release their first music video in early 2017 and to record their debut LP later that year. 

West Hammock’s music is a blend of indie - rock meets folk, a sound that is current, combined with a band that is committed, resulting in an entertaining and memorable performance.
