Matt Wilkinson selected ‘Confirmation’, the new single by Westerman, as one of his Breaking tracks on his Beats 1 show on Wednesday. He drew comparisons to Neil Young’s songwriting, Bon Iver and James Blake’s production. He described the track as “really beautiful, quite beatific”.
Westerman was invited in to BBC 6 Music studios this Saturday evening to chat to long time supporter, Tom Robinson. Tom played a selection of tracks from Westerman’s back catalogue including current single ‘Confirmation’ and its B side, ‘I Turned Away’, and spoke to Will about the journey from his beginnings in music to where he is now, and his latest release.
