Western Estates
Presently writing and recording in Southern Connecticut, Western Estates is an embryonic combination of new and old friends playing tuneful rock sparkling with creativity and a dash of prog for good measure. Featuring a stunningly sweet female vocalist and 3 guys trying to change the number of the beast to 203, Western Estates invites you to their universe.

This four-piece band proves the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Laura Klein (MZT), Glenn Furst (various local projects), Matt Cranmer (Codename Ella), and Jarrod Ruby (x-Thirdborder, AM, Proton Proton, Doug Gillard [Guided By Voices]) came together to challenge themselves to create a sound grounded in rock yet constantly reaching towards an eclectic variety of influences.

Each member has a unique musical background and multiple musical talents, which you can hear in the songwriting. Their songs range from romantic duets about carnival rides to stoner-rock odes to murder and mayhem, revenge-ballads to wistfully temporal love songs, all while maintaining their roots in Garage Rock.

Their music is accessible without ever quite fitting a formula. It is catchy without being repetitive, melodic without being generic, and surprising without being off-putting.

Western Estates is constantly developing new music and incorporating different instruments to their oeuvre. Catch them playing shows around CT and NY.
