The West Valley was a solo project for Bobby Rubalcava. He previously played in local Phoenix band Finding Grampa's Monsters before relocating to Omaha, Nebraska to pursuit a career in audio engineering. He couldn't stay away from the music for long thus leading him to write and record this album in the winter and spring of 2011 in his apartment.
