The Western Den
The Western Den
Formed in February 2013, and driven by a shared passion to create music with purpose, The Western Den is the collaborative work of Deni Hlavinka and Chris West, who together, blend compelling lush harmonies with ambient textures to produce a sound all their own. They released their debut EP, ‘Battle Hymns’, in May 2013 and premiered themselves to the public, opening for Melissa Ferrick on the northeastern leg of her national tour, in the summer of the same year.

In the Spring of 2015, the band quietly released their second EP, All The Birds; a collection of folk-inspired songs, brimming with rich orchestral arrangements and ethereal subtleties. After embarking on a tour of the East Coast in support of the release, they have since shared stages with artists such as Tall Heights, Saintseneca, Lucy Dacus, Darlingside, Haley Bonar, Paula Cole, and the Boston Pops.

"People under the spell of the Western Den often watch them with their heads tilted upwards, their mouths slightly open, pulsing subconsciously in time to the music. It’s like observing someone having a very strange dream.” (Zoe Atlas, Sound of Boston: Local Spotlight)
