Compared to Wilco and Big Star, Lines West feature a wide range of American rock traditions. Lines West is a four-piece group co-fronted by John Radzin on guitar and vocals and Brian Larney on keyboard, guitar, and vocals. Radzin and Larney formed Lines West in May 2013 after having played together in another Connecticut band, The Colt Six. The other half of the band is comprised of bassist Jan Stein and drummer Greg Kallas. The first full-length album, Stop Look and Listen was co-produced by Radzin and Larney (under their production moniker JAYBEE), and is available on Amazon, iTunes and Line’s West site.
Fueled by the songwriting tandem of Radzin and Larney, Stop Look and Listen is a unique blast of rootsy pop/rock. In addition, Larney is a prolific singer/songwriter who is also releasing on July 22nd his second solo full-length, Jupiter With You.
Lines West released their Blistering Heart EP in 2013, and used the momentum from those sessions to record Stop Look and Listen. According to Larney, the album is “a collection of eleven clear-eyed observances of life and love - wrapped in crystalline acoustic-based melodies and harmonies, all delivered with a touch of twang.”
