Wess Meets West has gone through an evolution of sorts from its innocuous beginnings as a studio project of guitarist Sam Stauff in White Plains, NY in 2005. Over the years, new influences and a revolving door of musicians has led Wess Meets West from the confines of the studio to the grandiose soundscapes that they have become known for. Wess Meets West's most recent effort, When The Structures Fail Us, ironically finds the band with its most structured lineup in years. Joined by bassist Erick Alfisi, guitarist Nick Robinson, and drummer Andrew Porta, Stauff's initial solo project has transformed into a fully collaborative effort. The release of When The Structures Fail Us saw Wess Meets West featured in Paste Magazine's Top Ten Bands from CT You Need to Know, Electronic Musician Magazine as well as ESPN's X-Games coverage.
