• West Coast Music

    As the name indicates West Coast Music has its origin on the American West Coast. The music emphasizes melody, harmonies and arrangements, and the vocal and instrumental performances are always with great skill and of high quality. The music is often performed by pop/rock artists from the American West Coast, but is in no way limited to any geografical area.



Words about the site from Lars-Erik Dahle:

Softrockcafe.org is a blog on its way to becoming a book about the Los Angeles studio scene in the late 70′s/early 80′s. The domain name is a semi-inspired pun on a relatively famous chain of rockin’ restaurants. Some of the music I’m writing about falls under “soft rock” classification, so it just seemed to fit.

I’ll be publishing article drafts, finished snippets, raw interview transcripts, and random thoughts here – as well as the odd album recommendation. A podcast with samples from the music I’m writing about will also be a semi-regular feature on the site. Feel free toleave a comment if you’ve got something on your mind.
