Like a true act of fate, Montreal singer/songwriter Mordy Harroch relocated to Toronto just as four young and hungry rockers from Burlington neared the 14-month mark in their exhausting singer-search; perfect timing for the destined-to-be rock project.
Combining Harroch's infectious and passionate songwriting, the band's massive and uplifiting rock sound, and three solid years of high-energy gigging, Westpoint sits ready to sink their teeth even 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 Toronto heavyweight engineer/producer Joel Kazmi. The result: a debut that will become a widespread musical favorite for years to come, and an accompanying live show with its gaze pointed firmly at your nearest arena.
Westpoint recently received a 2007 Toronto Independent Music Award for 'Best Rock/Alternative Band' and will be hitting the road on a Western-Canadian tour in early 2008 in support of their new album.
