Combining Harroch’s infectious and passionate songwriting, the band’s massive and uplifting rock sound, and three solid years of high energy gigging, Westpoint are ready to sink their teeth further into the ever-shifting music industry. With diverse opening slots for Hedley, April Wine, and Teenage Head, the band has proven themselves a worthy Canadian outfit ready to tackle any musical market that is thrown their way.
Initially discovered and produced by Jacksoul frontman Haydain Neale, Westpoint spent the summer of 2007 recording their first full length album, Goodbye Rocket with heavyweight Toronto engineer/producer Joel Kazmi. The result: a debut album that will a widespread musical favourite for years to come, and an accompanying live show with its gaze point firmly at the nearest arena.
Westpoint recently recieved the 2007 Toronto Independent Music Award for "Best Rock/Alternative Band" and will be hitting the road in early 2008 to support their album.
