Red Mountain Express

Your Hosts

A brief biography of Blake Westbrook and Matthew Joiner; the men behind the microphones at The Red Mountain Express podcast (a podcast made in Birmingham, Alabama).

The Men Behind the Mics


Blake Westbrook

Blake, the co-creator and front-man of this band, hasn't submitted his own bio yet so, I'll tell you what I know:  Have you seen the movie Braveheart?  Blake is what you imagine the more Americanized off-spring of William Wallace would be like (and yes, that does include lightning bolts from his hind-quarters).  He lives in Birmingham, Alabama with his wife, daughter, and two miniature Great Danes, Thor and Odin.  Blake enjoys whisky and Sprite, quoting movies, long walks on the beach, and old country ballads.


Matthew Joiner

Co-creator, co-host, and technical guru of the Red Mountain Express podcast, Matthew hails from Birmingham, Alabama where he enjoys life with his wife, his half-dog/half-cat Chloe, and pet cheetah, Charlie.  Matthew enjoys discussing and arguing about politics, religion, video games, books, movies and television shows; preferably over a dark pint around a table or in a quiet pub setting with friends and polite strangers.
