Riviera Nayarit Inspires California Song Writer

Sayulita,’ a Tale of Mysterious Love by Smitty West, Celebrates Beauty, Passion of Mexico’s Newest Vacation Destination.

Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, September 02, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Long before the rest of the world discovered its pleasures, Smitty West was enchanted by the Pacific sunsets, the beaches and the timeless charm of Riviera Nayarit. Now the Californian singer/song writer and keyboard player for the rock band Myridian has captured not only the beauty but the intoxicating passion and mysterious appeal of Mexico’s newest vacation destination in song.

“Sayulita,” along with “Posiblemente,” is featured on West’s solo album. Both songs were inspired by numerous visits with friends on the beaches of Nayarit and written there. “Sayulita,” named for a delightfully bohemian Nayarit art colony, with its beachfront alfresco restaurants, stylish shops and fine art galleries, tells of sunsets, swaying bodies, dark eyes and the sea.

In addition to his writing and performing, West is the founder of Ojai Songwriters Anonymous, a collaborative support group of songwriters in California. He also has been chosen as principal composer for Christopher Devine’s high-def film, Playing With Sticks. His newest features 12 original songs by West spanning the genres of folk, rock, Latin, metal and country.
