West Hammock — ‘Wanderlost’

Stephen Yorke of Dead Dog Records reviews Wanderlost by indie pop-rockers, West Hammock.

West Hammock

“West Hammock consists of singer-songwriter Hunter Sheridan on lead vocals, and electric guitar, Sean Thornton on back up vocalist, organ, and piano, and Ty Callan on drums. The band’s sound emulates a nostalgic sense of freedom brought upon by traveling coast to coast through changing Canadian landscapes.  The band released their debut EP in 2016 titled, “Wanderlost”, which was followed up by a Canadian tour that featured shows with the JUNO award-winning band, The Strumbellas. 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. With the release of their EP the band reached new levels of local success and regularly appeared on local television shows and newspapers. West Hammock continues to release new music in 2017 and will follow up with another cross Canada tour in the summer. Later in 2017, the band will resume pre-production on their upcoming debut full-length album.

West Hammock has performed with bands such as Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace), The Strumbellas, The Wooden Sky, The Fast Romantics, Joey Landreth, Jared & The Mill, Kalle Matteson, Wild Rivers, Ivory Hours, and many more.

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

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.
