The debut album from Michigan-based band Westrin & Mowry is a powerful and diverse accomplishment. While mining the influences of Crowded House, the Beatles, and Simon and Garfunkel, Westrin & Mowry''s "One Week Epiphany" is nonetheless a stylistically diverse musical travelogue that maintains a steady pulse of originality throughout. Skilled guitar work and addictive melodies are the hallmarks of the Westrin & Mowry sound. According to Lindsey K. Anderson of the State News, Westrin & Mowry''s debut is a four-star gem, "a ravishing compilation of songs from the group''s soul that unmasks a plethora of feel-good melodies with a solid country flair." Created during the majority of 2004, the album starts like an homage to feel good romance and concludes like a series of breakup letters that never quite made the mailbox. Whether stranded in a circular relationship or mooning over another lost weekend alone, the 11 tracks on "One Week Epiphany" keep the listener involved. The six tracks on "side A" represent the breezier pop sensibility of Westrin & Mowry, while the final 5 tracks on "side B" find the band traversing darker and edgier territory. As professional sounding as any major label release, Westrin & Mowry''s "One Week Epiphany" will surely make believers out of anyone who gives it a chance. Highlight tracks include "One Week Epiphany", "Saturday", "Nervous Girl", and "Fold in Two".
