West of East nominated for the 2012 Shepard Express, Best of Milwaukee's Readers Choice Awards for Alt-Country Band!
Driven by vocals that mix the subtle, velvety style of Norah Jones with the power of Neko Case, West of East pairs intelligently crafted lyrics with their own blend of acoustic folk and gritty, electric guitar soaked alt-country.
"Sara Moilanen and Tim Suchocki may follow in the footsteps of folk-twang artists such as Neil Young, Lucinda Williams and John Prine, but manage to carry their own weight in the genre by shifting the emphasis to Molianen’s more soulful vocal style and their introspective-yet-uplifting lyricism."

"If you like the kind of thoughtful, smooth and beautiful music of, say, John Prine or Norah Jones, you will indeed like West of East. "
- David Smith, Stumpjack Coffee Blog (Apr 01, 2009)
"I dig the energy. Love the lead vocals...that resonant, female, powerful voice "
