Western Haunts
Western Haunts
Western Haunts began as Singer/Songwriter Jake Witt's Indie Folk-Rock solo project. With lazy melodies, lush guitars and thundering toms, Western Haunts' Alt-Country sound is a call to Midwestern revival, drenched in reverb and the ambience of shoe-gaze music.

Witt's songs about lost summers in the rural Rust Belt and ghost stories from his Midwestern roots grew out of the 2009 summer sessions at Soda Form Studio in Seattle, WA. On Western Haunts' follow-up release Shed Your Summer Shell Witt has taken over the reigns on drums and is joined by 4 new band members.

Recently Western Haunts have teamed up with music attorney Gillian Barr (Arcade Fire, The National, The Decemberists) and their music can be heard across the nation on CMJ radio stations and on MTV and FUEL TV programming.

Live, Western Haunts have been playing bills with artists the likes of Moondoggies (Hardly Art) Frontier Ruckus (Ramseur Records) Motopony and Roadside Graves, as well as in-studio performances on KEXP and currated shows by Seattle's City Arts Magazine and Seattle Weekly.
