About The Band
Western Medicine is an intricate collective of musicians who combine elements of jazz, blues, and rock n roll. The band was started in 2011 when Emile Antonell and Grant Burich were both working for a local radio station. The band performed as a duo powered by Antonell'ssoulful yet complex songwriting and Burich's melodic command of the drums. In 2013 the sound was supplemented when they added Kody Bjork, who brought his dynamic genre-crossing style into the band on bass. The trio expanded to a quartet in 2018 with the addition of Rebecca Spickler on keyboards and backing vocals, filling out the band.
