Peter Cox and Richard Drummie first met in 1974. They signed as songwriters with ATV Music in 1982 and as recording artists Go West with Chrysalis Records two years later. Their debut single, We Close Our Eyes, was released in the Spring of 1985. It reached number 5 in the UK charts and became a top 10 hit in the USA. This overnight success was followed by three further UK top 10 hits – Call Me, Goodbye Girl and Don’t Look Down. The album Go West sold 2 million copies worldwide and remained on the UK chart for 83 weeks, establishing them as one of the finest song-writing partnerships to emerge in the 80’s. In 1986 they won the BRIT Award for ‘Best British Newcomer’ – the one BRIT which was decided by the listening public. Six albums and 20 million sales later, Go West are stronger than ever.

They have enjoyed numerous chart singles worldwide, notably King Of Wishful Thinking, the opening song in the extremely successful film Pretty Woman. The film’s soundtrack has sold over 10 million copies. King Of Wishful Thinking received ASCAP Awards in 1991 and 1992 as one of the most played songs on American radio. Faithful, the second single from their Indian Summer album, received similar BMI Awards in 1992 and 1993. The year 2020 was the 35th anniversary of the release of their first album, Go West, and the band were due to tour to celebrate this, but due to Covid this had to be re-scheduled. The band played live shows all around the UK in 2022 and 2023, including 4 hugely successful Orchestral shows with The Southbank Sinfonia. A special edition box set was released to coincide with this tour. In 2024 the band are embarking on a two week co-headline tour of the UK with Wet Wet Wet, followed by a joint tour of New Zealand and Australia with Nik Kershaw. Go West have carried on captivating audiences all over the world for the past four decades. They have certainly earned their reputation as an outstanding, exciting live act.
