After scrapping more than half the record due to the sudden death of his Marine veteran brother, Jonathan Terrell perfects and comes out swinging on third LP, Westward. “The album I wanted to make”. Austin, TX elite musicians Shakey Graves, Mark Wystrach (Midland) David Ramirez and Gregg Rolie (Santana/ Journey) members of Black Pumas and Band of Heathens all contribute alongside Terrell's eversteady road band.

Westward’s genre defying sonic landscapes effortlessly embrace country, folk, rock-n-roll and R&B for a totally unique yet timeless sound, while sharp yet thoughtful lyrics weave tales of love, loss and redemption in a modern world.
