ormed in early 2000, the Westpoint's years together saw them attempt to develop their performing and songwriting to a world-class level. They played a score of Southern Ontario's most revered and legendary venues including: Lee's Palace, The Horseshoe Tavern, The Reverb, The 360, The Drake Hotel, The Underground, Big Bucks Mountain Lodge and The Casbah. Westpoint also received critical acclaim from Southern Ontario rock radio stations.
In 2002, the band entered the 97.7 New rock Search, reaching the semi-finals along with 15 other bands from over 200 entries. The following year, Toronto's Edge 102.1 would also take notice, selected by radio personality Barry Taylor as one of three bands to compete in the Edge Extreme Band Slam.
In August of 2004, Westpoint cemented their current line-up with the addition of singer Mordy Harroch, ending a grueling audition process that had spanned 14 months and over 50 auditions. The next several months would see Westpoint both refining songs from a large backlog of material and incorporating Mordy's new compositions into the band's regular repertoire featuring the other members Jeff Kenny (guitars), Steve Andrews (guitars), Brandon Robinson (bass), and Dan Walker (drums). Love and Comfort In a Time of Confuse was the result of that effort in 2005.
