Stanton West songs are rootsy, feel-good, and groove driven. His songs are about hope, having fun, being who you are, and relishing the moment. He is an award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and world traveling troubadour spreading a message about the importance of family, community, nature, and positivity. Solo or with his Good Timey Band, you will be reminded of the laid-back vibes of Taj Mahal, Leon Redbone, Roger Miller, and the classic hits of the early 1900’s mixed with a charming modern folk sensibility. Stanton West is frequently featured on the nationally syndicated Wisconsin Public Radio show Simply Folk. In 2015 he co-starred in a film about jug band music with Garrison Keillor from A Prairie Home Companion.
