Warner Bros. Records is collaborating with Netflix for the exclusive music soundtrack of Westside. On November 9th, the unscripted eight-episode series launches globally on Netflix, same day and date as the release of WESTSIDE: THE MUSIC, the official 20-song soundtrack on Warner Bros. Records.

Westside offers a groundbreaking and deeply personal glimpse into the journeys of nine young Los Angeles-based musicians at the heart of the story. Their music spans multiple genres from rock, pop and alternative, to urban and country. As they strive to develop an ensemble performance for a potential showcase at an L.A. nightclub, each episode sheds light on their creative processes and personal struggles. Cinema verité-style documentary footage is interspersed with beautifully produced music videos created by some of the top directors in the field.
