John West on the humble hustle, soul music and the human condition

Up and coming soul singer/songwriter John West recently sat down with Singersroom to discuss the beginnings of his career and his ‘humble hustle’, his love for soul music and the emotion connection of singing, being inspired to write songs through difficult times and his parents expectations [his mother: “just try to write a song like ‘Imagine'”].

He also shares some knowledge about the human condition and the issues we face in modern life, plus his hopes to bring some positivity through his music; “I hope that the music makes people feel good and in that space of feeling good that they’re able to be the best version of themselves” – watch below.
