Although he's only been active for a few years, London-based musician Westerman has forged a unique path as an introverted pop artist with his emotional songwriting, elegant production, and distinctive vocal style. Garnering comparisons to a young Peter Gabriel, Westerman's charming and frequently hypnotic music falls somewhere between artful soft rock and confessional electronic pop. Following a steady string of critically-adored EPs and singles, Westerman recently signed with Partisan Records who recently released his debut full album Your Hero Is Not Dead on June 5th.

Westerman's guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World spotlights the heartfelt and genuine approach he takes with his own music as he shares timeless songs by some all-time greats -- Miles Davis, Neil Young, Cocteau Twins, Nick Drake, Brian Wilson, Pharaoh Sanders, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, to name a few -- that all beautifully weave together for a sublime, restorative listening experience.
