Joel P West and the Tree Ring have been a long time coming. The band’s genesis started with one Joel P. West building and crafting a lone ship- beautiful songs he played with the accompaniment of his guitar, and at times, guest instrumentation. He eventually added a full band in the best way: The Tree Ring was formed and it was like the missing piece that Joel needed all along. The group gave Joel’s songs legs. Strings will do that. They’re an absolute pleasure to watch. If you’re in the San Diego area you must come out to their record release for their album “Generous Shadows” at the San Diego Women’s Club on Feb. 12th. The LP will be released officially on Feb. 15th.
