Nathan West stopped by the studio to chat with us about working with his wife, Chyler Leigh, his band East of Eli and his audition experience for Bring it On!

I want y'all to know that Chyler had 2.5 hours of sleep, JUST finished shooting her last episode, had multiple delays at the airport and while ON her plane, and had a huge issue with her phone being disconnected and she STILL came to see all of us at the East of Eli concert, sang with us, hugged all of us individually, and took photos and had convos with us. She is fucking LOYAL and cares a TON about her fans and she is honestly /so/ ride or die, like honestly when will ur fave EVER??

Hiii :) I’m just really really gay. Like “The Gay ™“ gay right now.

Made this for Chyler and I gave it to her an hour ago. 

I am not okay.

 Just….WOW. That East Of Eli concert was the best thing in the world, I couldn’t be more thankful. To all the people who were there during the show, DAMN you guys were so loud and it was awesome.

Chyler Leigh is so soft and pure she cried so much and Nathan and she were looking at each other with love eyes it was soo wonderful.

Just thank you Sanvers for making me discover these amazing artists and thank you Sanvers for just existing.

When I tell you that Nathan and Chyler are two of the most genuine people in the entire universe. I’m not exaggerating, not even a little bit. Nathan was telling us about how Chyler had nearly spent the whole day crying because of everything with her phone and her plane delays. How she was sitting on the plane, on the runway, waiting to take off so she could be there. He kept saying how it was gonna happen, she would be there. He stalled the whole concert as long as he could. Singing extra songs, taking longer breaks between songs, telling jokes, and telling stories. He had the fans keep checking her flight info and updating him. Chyler watched most of the show live through periscope while on her flight to NY. Nathan pulled multiple people up on stage to dance with him, sing with him, and periscope him and the crowd live to Chyler. Nathan kept saying stuff like, “She’ll be here. It’s gonna happen. Don’t worry. If we can’t stay in the venue, we’ll take it to the streets. Idk how NYPD will like that though, but that’s okay! We’ll stay until they take us away.” And you guys. Nathan has such a stellar stage presence. I was blown away. So Nathan finished his set and Chyler was just about to land and he told everyone he was gonna stick around and if we wanted to stay, we could. So everyone that stayed kind of loitered around and I was outside when Chyler arrived. She got out of the car and just bent over and let a huge breath of relief out. She told us she loved us and she’d be back in two seconds because she needed to go hug Nathan and then she legit TOOK OFF RUNNING to go see him. They are just so ;__; and then they came out and performed Nowhere and Love Lit the Sky and Nathan and Chyler both cried. Then they did a meet and greet. I had such an amazing conversation with Nathan about everything from his shows to his kids and it was just awesome. He was telling me about how him and Chyler do this for us, the fans. He doesn’t hear himself when he sings, he hears us. He made sure I got in to see and talk to Chyler and they both hugged me and signed my shirt. Chyler is so sweet and her skin is freaking flawless. They were there until like 5am even though Chyler was running on 2 ½ hours of sleep, solely because they wanted to see and meet every single person that stayed.
