Come out to Shangri-La Records after work on July 27 for some tunes by J.D. Westmoreland, whose ‘Birds of Paradigm’ 45″ vinyl will be available beginning that day at the store!


J.D. Westmoreland’s “Birds of Paradigm” (released on 7” vinyl with B-side “Can’t Seem to Get it Right”) will be available to purchase on 7” vinyl at Shangri-La Records beginning this month. To celebrate, Westmoreland will play an in-store show at Shangri-La on Friday, July 27 at 6 PM.

The two tracks were recorded on two-inch tape at Royal Studios with Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell engineering. The project is being released by the studio’s affiliated label, Royal Records.

“I have been involved with musical genres from classical to jazz jam to bluegrass,” Westmoreland says. “But for this particular project I wanted more of a clean, simple production so that the songs could really express the story. Both these songs deal with the ambiguity of love and circumstance. I wanted to crystallize emotions in a simple format – kind of a bright way of looking at darkness.”

“Birds of Paradigm” will be available for sale at the in-store on July 27. The performance is free and open to the public.
