Featuring three young critically acclaimed guitar virtuosos (Jeff Stein, John Storie, and Perry Smith), New West Guitar Group has been making its mark on the way towards THE premier acoustic/electric guitar ensemble. Seamlessly melding influences from Jazz to Americana to Chamber Music, their original music combines the different timbres of the acoustic and electric guitars to create a unique, genre-defying sound. With Round-Trip Ticket, New West utilizes its signature sound as a force for exploring themes of motion, homecoming, and the natural world. As an actively performing group, New West continues to reach audiences at major venues throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, and Europe.
"The New West guitar trio is setting a new bar with their latest release. To say that they are virtuosic, musical, and innovative is just scratching the surface. They are reinventing the possibilities of what three creative guitarists can weave when they cast a musical net encompassing everything from folk, rock, classical, jazz and all sorts of sounds that exist in between.'' -Larry Koonse, Guitarist
