Joel P. West is an acoustic-style singer songwriter. His album Something Makes Us Move is available on his website. His 2008 album Dust Jacket Project was recorded while he worked days as a high school teacher. The album is offered as a download in trade for poetry, art, photography, or whatever creation someone chooses to swap with.

In Autumn 2010, the Tree Ring frontman began recording a new album with Midwinters piano man Chris Hobson, who is also a recording engineer. The following year, he was awarded a $17,815 by the San Diego Foundation Creative Catalyst Fund to produce an album inspired by local landscapes, featuring local chamber music ensemble Camarada.
