The debut album from Westerman, aka the London singer-songwriter Will Westerman, sounds as though it's been plucked from some bygone golden age of music.

"Debut LP from West London singer songwriter Will Westerman. Your Hero Is Not Dead is the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed Ark EP. Recorded alongside his close friend and producer Nathan Jenkins (A.K.A. Bullion) at first in Southern Portugal before finishing the process in London, Your Hero Is Not Dead is an album about empathy and compassion, struggle and release, and all the ways we contradict and battle within ourselves. The project is full of supremely crafted, groove-hinged songs about moral, political, and ethical grey areas, that find Westerman attempting to resolve external issues by looking inward. The packaging is designed by acclaimed designer Braulio Amando (Bad Studio) and both CD and LP comes in reflective sleeve. "Westerman's songwriting takes in the tumult of a whirring mind and turns it into music that has the power to soothe modern anxieties, if not solve them" – Pitchfork. "Manages to delicately balance melodic complexity and a variety of different instruments in a way that sounds not just easy, but effortless" – Dazed."
