West Coast Rock Hits Canadian Coastal Music Scene
Promoting Local Artists & Indie Bands on Canada's West Coast
By: Maricel Piercey
Owners, James and Gina Kelly, hope to further entice more musicians to the WCR family by offering services such as an artist bio page, streaming songs, and the ability to include photos and video on the West Coast Rock website. Guided by their deep love for music and their desire to support local artists and Indie bands along their sometimes, rocky (pun intended) journey, West Coast Rock intends to be at the forefront in helping these musicians during what they feel, is a critical juncture in west coast music. Their goal is to open a door and provide a bridge of understanding for these local artists and by doing so, strive to achieve even higher levels of performance. An excellent case in point was in the recent and well-received, West Coast Rock Fest on August 7th in Cobble Hill, attended by several hundred people entertained by no less than fifteen bands, including four headliners. This all-day affair provided exceptional music and was met with enthusiastic reception. And, if the thousands of views the website has already received just within the last few weeks since its launch is any indication of where this company is going, this bodes well for those musicians striving to gain the exposure they’ve been working towards.
About West Coast Rock
West Coast Rock began with the marriage of two people - James and Gina Kelly, and their shared love for music. From the first live band that played on the back deck for their wedding reception, to taking last minute ferries in their rush to see the next up and coming B.C. artists, they’ve shared the same mission…their commitment to the promotion of the exploding west coast music scene. Along the way, they’ve gained considerable knowledge with the help from industry experts in helping to create and establish West Coast Rock as a viable entity within the B.C music industry.
