ABOUT BLAIR WEST
Often described as a mix between Joni Mitchell, Jewel and Taylor Swift, Blair West’s sound is a glorious concoction of folk-pop with soul and indie influences threaded throughout. With her creativity coming from her tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, New Yorker grit, and Scorpio sensitivity (if you know you know!) she has been writing music since the tender age of five. With a keen knowledge and background in Piano, Guitar, Musical Theatre, she was also the president of her college a-cappella group.
Blair has always felt the underlying urge and ever-present nudge to pursue her music career professionally, yet had to pop her dreams temporarily on the shelf when she moved to NYC. Having since launched a successful career in journalism and marketing—earning her the skills she now puts to good use, she is ready to return to her musicality. After several years of writing songs after long days in the office, Blair soon realized there was no passion stronger than that for her music, and she finally decided to "go for it".
Since that huge leap of faith, Blair has been performing all around the East Coast, perfecting her musical skill and stage presence and has spent hours upon hours writing music, honing in on her unique sound. Her debut singles ‘All this to Say’ and ‘Rabbit Holes’ amassed more than 72,000 streams on Spotify and 19,000 streams on Youtube.
