Wess Meets West is a defiantly optimistic instrumental rock/metal band which began 10 years ago as the project of lead guitarist Sam Stauff. They originated as a singer-less outfit but over time have introduced sparse vocals to guide themes and boost the dynamic presence of certain songs. As they've evolved, Wess Meets West have incorporated electronic samples to brighten and expand texture and provide a denser backdrop upon which to shred, breakdown and groove. The result is a flood of constantly shifting melodies that are connected by fluid motifs.
