Biography

Wess Meets West is an instrumental electronic infused rock band and the Mountains are shaking at their roots.

Wess Meets West began in late 2005 and was created by Sam Stauff (The Morning After, My Holy Ghost, A Paper Tugboat). Initially, it was intended solely as an electronic music project supplemented by Sam on guitar. The project stayed this way until February 2008 when Sam recruited bass player Bryan Gottshall and drummer Jesse Vengrove, turning Wess Meets West into a live elements, bringing the music to a whole new level and finally allowing the music to be performed in a live setting.

Wess Meets West’s first Album, “You Women…” is a small collection of songs and experiments, mostly consisting of guitar driven atmospheric jams with electronic undertones. This EP was produced when it was still Sam’s solo project. However, with the addition of Jesse and Bryan, Wess Meets West wrote new material that showcased their new sound.

“How To Kill A Mammoth” is the result of taking Wess Meets West to a full band and live setting, yet still incorporating electronic sounds. “How To Kill A Mammoth” was recorded by Port City Recording—operated by Sam and Bryan—at Mercy College in White Plains, New York.

2009 Found Wess Meets West as a solo project again, still will the help of friends when needed. “A Collection Of Explosions And Death Threats” is the Third Release from Wess Meets West.

Sam has recently collaborated with singer-songwriter John Nolan (Taking Back Sunday, Straylight Run) with the song “The Bering Sea”, check it out on Nolan’s website:
