Alias
Description Geoff Westen;s single-mindedness, focus, hard work and skill - not to mention cynicism and obsession - has all come together in one appealing package called I;m Not Crazy - his third power pop rock album on the Disturbing Music label.

His instinctive ;80s feel and traditional songwriting chops delivered catchy melodies and memorable hooks...shifting his Power Pop chops ever closer to Power Punk. His recordings under the Digital Activity pseudonym explore an entirely different landscape - instrumental music which is a unique hybrid of Rock and Ambient gone wild which he calls RAM - Rock Ambient Music.
