The Westerlies are a New York based brass quartet comprised of four friends from Seattle, Washington. Avid explorers of cross-genre territory, The Westerlies are a collectively run ensemble dedicated to the cultivation of a new brass quartet repertoire that exists in the ever-narrowing gap between American folk music, jazz, classical, and indie rock. The Westerlies have also collaborated with Wayne Horvitz, Dave Douglas, Bill Frisell, and Juilliard Dance. Members of the Westerlies currently study at The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music.

Their debut album “Wish The Children Would Come on Home: The Music of Wayne Horvitz,” will be released in March 2014 on Vancouver, BC label Songlines Records.
