From San Francisco's bluesy Boom Boom Room to the legendary NYC club CBGB's, the soul of WELLS emanates from the core of a musician whose passion bleeds through every song. Its predecessor Lovehead, the brainchild of Christopher Wells, began as an explorative journey into the emotional depths of this complex artist. Recognized for his vocal ability from an early age, this multi-instrumentalist defies conventional categorization. An accomplished guitarist and bassist, he has also been known to tickle the ivories if it fits the mood of the song. Wells was surrounded by musical talent as a child with blues, soul and jazz musicians peppering his family tree. At 19, he formed Peasants of the Apocalypse, an industrial rock band ahead of its time. During the bands seven year history, P.O.A. opened up for Metallica, Everclear, Def Leppard and a slew of other notable acts. After various projects including a brief stint with NYC darlings Apollo Heights, Wells turned his focus toward his next incarnation. WELLS was spawned out of the growth he experienced and also out of the honor he held for the generations of musicians in his family. Lyrically, his focus shifted from angry commentary on life’s external forces to the soul-searching he faced within. Stirring melodic compositions are accentuated by Wells’ own layered production techniques. In challenging himself both technically and emotionally, his songwriting straddles several genres seamlessly. WELLS challenges music’s boundaries with a palpable rawness that takes you on the emotional journey with him. By fusing rock, soul, psychedelia and blues into one cohesive sound, this multi-instrumentalist creates his own unique vibe.Feel it
