A musical product of the creative melting pot of Portland, Mbrascatu is an indie rock band that draws from diverse European and American roots to create a unique signature sound.
Blending together dynamics ranging from delicate to explosive; expressive Italian lyrics; hook-laden melodies; inventive arrangements; and energetic rhythms to dance to; the band has performed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest, delighting audiences at the hottest music venues, outdoor festivals, bars, clubs and local radio stations.
Carolina born songwriter Will West has called Portland home since the summer of 2002. He performs live with a collection of musicians called The Friendly Strangers.
Together they create a unique blend of modern folk, pop, jazz and bluegrass. Whether performing at a small club or outdoor festival for 1000's, they find true joy in performing and love to connect with the audience.
