Walking West began as a collaboration between singer/songwriter Erland Wanberg and his uncle, drummer Erich Riedl. Over the next few years, the duo grew to a trio with bassist Nate Modisette, then quartet with songwriter and vocalist Khasy Modisette, and finally adding multi-instrumentalist Anders Bergstrom to form the full band in 2009. In October of 2010 Walking West was invited to record with Producer Henry Hirsch (Lenny Kravitz, Mick Jagger, Tokyo Police Club) at Waterfront Studio in Hudson, NY.
