Jeff Westlake symbolizes what it means when they say "Local boy makes good." Hard work, belief and dedication are still the path to success and Jeff Westlake has taken that path and has reached the status of the music elite.

With billboard charting success as a producer, song writer, musician and engineer, Westlake and his band Hydrogyn have built a strong following and continue to write successful albums such as 2017's "Redemption." For Westlake, there was something calling inside that needed to be explored musically and that is when he stepped out on his own in 2015.

Uniting with Terry Withrow and with Terry's urging, Jeff once again took a new step to expand musically and wrote his first blues album titled "In The Key of Blue." His first solo album took an impressive approach to the best of the blues and injected a Rock N' Roll twist.

The outcome was Blue's Rock delivered with precision and melody not often heard in the modern rock world.

In 2018, Westlake has taken another step in his solo career; launching from the solid foundation that was "In The Key of Blue," has brought a new twist with his new concept album "Dead World." Recorded July 2017 thru February 2018 at WOW Studios Nashville Tennessee and produced by Terry Withrow, Mixed by Terry Withrow and mastered by Jeff Westlake.

The albums lineup includes: Jeff Westlake - guitars, bass and vocals, Terry Withrow - Guitar, Joe Caudill - Piano and Keys and John Cardilino (Hydrogyn band mate) drums and percussion.

This album is part two of Jeff's self-proclaimed cleansing process, to get certain emotions and music out of his system that have built up over years.

"Dead World" is musically connected to a story written by Westlake, Terry Withrow and Brandon Withrow called "Alive and Well in Dead World." The book will be released in a new type of media formatting system that won't be revealed until closer to release date.

Album features 9 originals and 1 cover from Glenn Hughes and BCC, Cold.
