The Western Shore is a Nashville based husband and wife Americana duo. Kalee and Charlie Smyth formed the band in Kalee's hometown of Seattle, WA in 2012 and relocated to Nashville, TN at the end of 2013. 

Charlie hails from Chicago, IL and has been a part of several past projects including Laundry, Project Perfect, and Fontanelle. In 2010, Charlie recorded a solo Americana album in Chicago titled "Leaves", which critics praised for being "pensive, spare, beautiful, emotive and distinctively American" (eastportlandblog.com). 

Kalee, the daughter of Seattle based bluegrass and western swing musician, Mike Faast, grew up singing country music. Kalee has studied music in New York (Manhattanville College and Fordham University), Chicago (Bloom School of Jazz), and Nashville (Belmont University).

The Western Shore combines the traditional sound of classic country singers like Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton with the brooding lyric of writers such as Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen, and John Prine.
