CHIRP Radio 107.1FM is thrilled to welcome Westerman to Lincoln Hall on Wednesday, May 17th!

British singer/songwriter Will Westerman makes low-key, atmospheric indie pop with a cerebral bent à la Steely Dan, one of his influences. His debut album, Your Hero Is Not Dead, saw release in 2020. The political-minded single "Idol; RE-run," a collaboration with Big Thief's James Krivchenia, appeared in 2022 ahead of a Los Angeles-recorded follow-up LP, 2023's An Inbuilt Fault.

After a period that included the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, a move to Athens, Greece, and disenchantment with making music, Westernman's latest work took a more uncompromising approach. A song he wrote shortly after the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capital, "Idol; RE-run" was released in October 2022. Further sessions with Krivchenia -- alongside a handful of additional players based in Los Angeles -- resulted in Westerman's second album, An Inbuilt Fault, being issued in 2023.
