In the 1980s and early 1990s, Westerholm was part of the comedy duo Al & George with Al Rae. Following their breakup, he turned his attention primarily to music and writing rather than standup comedy performance.
Westerholm was part of a Toronto trio called Sinphonic in the mid-1990s, which released two cassettes and two CDs. He performed on both vocals and guitars, along with John Bowker (vocals, bass) and Dino Naccarato (drums). The group was "called everything from punk/surf to 'suave-garage', with influences from the style of Red Snapper to the recklessness of Link Wray."
Westerholm has also released a self-titled 6-track EP which includes his best-known song, "Trevor", and he was planning to release another one in the fall of 2006. "Trevor" achieved some notoriety after being played nationally on the CBC Radio One program DNTO.
