Before the West. is a collection of most all the music I have been so blessed in molding since my time first arrived in Asheville, North Carolina, January 2013. Its contents are sporadic artifacts from my experience in the city and mountains of Southern Appalachia. This place is a dense green trinket forest blanket where buildings are slowly eaten by vines and time. At night you may see a marmot scurry in the distant road and fire flies in backyard trees. Owls reveal themselves to you without care and frogs hop away from your feet. Catfish slap there tails on river waters and birds are souls on wires needless of the time you and I seem confined. It is a place where town mice take their same routes on daily trips, but always find something.
