John West singer/songwriter/musician began honing his artistic skills while working as a street performer at the Third Street Promenade in nearby Santa Monica.
The first single of the soon to be released Mercury Records / Island Def Jam album is “Lovely” featuring Pusha T of the rap duo The Clipse is set off by a sparkling piano rolling over a mesmerizing drum beat. Accompanying the soulful, airy groove is a short story about the simple pleasures of hanging out with someone special. West’s smooth tenor (“It’s like oh oh oh / We don’t need no words”) meshes perfectly with Pusha T1s easygoing flow and clever rap (“Let’s test the waters / love makes a splash / and you’re too thick to skinny dip”).
West’s debut album, in addition to Christian Rich, the production duo behind “Lovely,” the singer is working with Brian Kennedy (Rihanna), Ari Levine of the Smeezingtons (Bruno Mars, B.o.B), Kevin Rudolf (Lil Wayne, Leona Lewis) and the Stereotypes (Far East Movement), among others.
