“After a season dominated by the word ‘separation,’ I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been craving community,” West shares. “The closest I was able to get to many of my artist friends was an occasional songwriting session on Zoom. So as the weather warms up and the country slowly opens, I invited some of my friends over to the Story House for a virtual event like none other we’ve done. This is a night filled with never before performed duets and collaborations, but most of all, this will be a night filled with songs of hope from some of my favorite artists, finally all together!”
Pearce states, “I love Matthew not only as an artist, but as a person. He has made his vision come to life with The Story House and from the moment I sang my vocals on “Truth Be Told” there, I knew it was a special place. I’m excited for everyone to be able to be a part of that room.”
Logan Cain of the band CAIN adds, “West Friends Fest represents exactly what we think the music industry should be. Someone with as much success as Matthew could just have his own show but he decided to share his platform with all of us. It truly is a sign of how collaborative and connected the Christian music community really is.”
West Friends Fest is sponsore by Fellowship Home Loans, Hope On Demand, Compassion International, and popwe.
