Western Star is the authentic ideal as far
as country rock is concerned. They have
spent the last two years tirelessly gigging
through the south and east coast areas of the
U.S. To fund their creative outlet, they helped
out with construction projects on band
members the Jeffers brothers' ranch in
With their heavily guitar-driven rock and lead singer Jeffers's wailing and sometimes screaming voice, the band has drawn comparisons to the Pixies, Joe Cocker, and Van Morrison. It seems to be equally inspired by the fast and heavy punk aesthetic and the country spirit of the southern states where they all lived.
The band came together and slowly forged their unique sound over a number of years. Max Jeffers first paired up with lead guitarist Justin Myers at a show he played in Virginia when he was only twelve years old. The pair toured as a duo until Max hooked up with his brother Nick and the drummer Bob Shade, who they met in Baltimore. The chemistry between the energetic youth is something they worked a long time to achieve, and that is still pleasing crowds across the south and the east coast.
