Profile 26 West is the songwriting team of Canadian Danny Boyle (vocals) and Portland, Oregon born Barry Aiken (keyboards). Coming from two successful musical backgrounds, Barry’s music appears on network and cable television programs such as NFL Films, Party of Five, Wheel of Fortune and The History Channel. In addition to the national release of ’87 ‘Sky High’, the Westcost / AOR cult album with the group Flight 7, and being member of Gino Vannelli’s band. Danny’s music has kept his voice heard on the airwaves throughout the Northwest region for years with his act KID, touring clubs, colleges and recording.

“I Can’t Believe” is their one and only album, an Adult Contemporary collection of songs with an eclectic mix of smooth Westcoast AOR, Rock&Pop and Classic Rock. It’s a gentle, easy listening CD, driven by Aiken’s modern and classic influenced keyboards. Danny Boyle vocals are pretty convincing for the most part, specially on the slow tunes, which abound here. A pleasant listen, released independently and not easy to find these days.
