Profile “West Of Sunset” are an Westcoast/AOR duo from Sweden remembered for their high quality westcoast sound. The band mainly consists of vocalist, guitarist & keyboardist Björn Strom and bassist & guitarist Thomas Axelsson.

The group was founded under the name of Fingerprints in 1989. After the release of the album “Time Is All We Need”, singer, guitarist and keyboard player Bjorn Strom and guitarist / bass player Thomas Axel founded a successful duo. Björn Strom’s unique voice made the 1992 album “West Of Sunset” one of the most successful records of this genre.

Sound-wise, the guys on “West Of Sunset” though orientate more on the American West Coast sound and not on the Swedish AOR traditions. Strom’s vocal performance is incredible, many songs are really standouts like “Ocean Boulevard”, “Giving My Heart Away” or “West Of Sunset”, you won’t stop heard them again and again. The album became a much sought after collector’s item after it got cancelled by Swedish label Sonnet.
