Musicians hail from several of the country’s most roots-based blues cities, including Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis and Los Angeles.

The group recently celebrated their first commercial release, The Westlake Sessions, a name referencing the iconic Hollywood-based studio where the band recorded in Studio D—the same room where Michael Jackson recorded many of his megahits, including the history-making album Thriller.

The Terraplanes followed up the Westlake sessions recording session with a commercially-produced video in support of the first single from the album, “Water to Wine.”
