Song-craft. It can seem like a dying art these days, when “vibe” and a good beat can matter more than melody and meaningful lyrics. But the two principals in Lines West are driven to change that. Having recently released their third album, The Ghost for You, and several new singles, they’re expanding an already established foundation of well-formulated songs.

Lennon and McCartney, Henley and Frey, Strummer and Jones…when bands have two singer/songwriters, there’s a synergy (and competitiveness) that drives both writers. Lines West, based in Bridgeport, CT, features Brian Larney and John Radzin, both accomplished songwriters and vocalists, and the two writer/singer dynamic holds true for them as well. Lines West is a “post-Americana” outfit, drawing influences from power pop to folk to…well, to just about anything where song-craft matters. Described as "Simon and Garfunkel fronting Wilco” or “The Band" and “a semi-acoustic Coldplay fronted/ led by Paul McCartney", Lines West is defined by solid composition and sweet-sounding harmonies.

The pair met while playing in the Alt-Country rock group The Colt Six. Already writing most of the songs for that band, they would work together often. While singing their own songs, they began to shift and expand stylistically, and the new sounds they found led them to want to create their own project. Lines West started out in April of 2014, and immediately began recording their first record, Stop Look and Listen completing it for a summer release. The two reached out to good friends and talented musicians, Kenny Cash and Scott Logan to tour and record as needed. 

From their Alt-Country routes, Lines West has expanded their sound into a  “post-Americana” landscape where influences as diverse as The Beach Boys and Jimmy Webb converge in pure, unadulterated, song-craft.

Discography

This is Our Night - 2017 (single) 

Two of a Perfect Pair - 2015

Reach Surrender - 2017 (single) 

Stop Look and Listen - 2014

The Ghost for You  - 2016  

The core of any band is their recorded works, and Lines West is no exception.

 

From the "Americana with a twist" of Stop Look and Listen to the perfect pop stylings of Two of a Perfect Pair,  and on to the darker thematic bent of The Ghost For You, the band has shown that there is no genre they are uncomfortable with and no sound they can't master.

 

Their most recent singles show yet another side of the band, one in which anthemic power pop and eclectic rock become yet more colors in their palette to be used at will.
