The Swedish west coast label…

Between 1994 and 1997 the swedish recordlabel Westcoast Music released 13 albums with the artists Jay Graydon, King Of Hearts, Bill Champlin, Randy Goodrum, Tim Feehan, Mark Spiro, Bruce Gaitsch, Janey Clewer, Timothy Drury, Brett Walker & Fee Waybill.

Westcoast Records was based in Stockholm in Sweden, and the owner Håkan Häggblom and his brother Thomas (who worked at Sony Publishing) are two of the greatest ambassadors of top quality westcoast music.

In 1997 the label were closed down. But with their releases they were active in gettin´ the west coast music back on the scene again in Europe, and many artists can give this swedish label big credits with all their helps in gettin´ their albums released.

Some of the releases can still be bought secondhand on the internet, or at your local west coast store.
