Jennifer Westwood and Dylan Dunbar return to Poodie’s with Soulful, Rustbelt Americana.
Jennifer Westwood and Dylan Dunbar form the heart of Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils, perform soulful americana and have toured primarily as an electric/acoustic duo since re-openings for audiences of 20 to 2,500. Blues guitar licks and soulful vocals blend influences from Texas Blues to Muscle Shoals, with a dose of Gospel and rustbelt sensibilities, showcasing Dylan’s skillful playing and Jennifer’s dynamic vocals.
In 2021 Jennifer was invited by producer Don Was (Bonnie Raitt, Willy Nelson, Rolling Stones, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros) to perform in his all-star band.
“Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils sound like they made a serendipitous wrong turn on their way to the juke joint and wound up in a countrypolitan cathedral instead. It’s beautiful and ever so haunting. Westwood’s voice is sexy and strong as it applies the seduction over the band’s groove and thoughtful reserve….It packs a wallop” Rochester NY City Newspaper
