Wes Collins / Bio

Wes picked up the guitar when he was seventeen, and worked at it for ten years or so, playing covers for a living. Around his thirtieth birthday he parked his Takamine under the bed and got a straight job as a buyer for a retail music chain, but dug out the guitars in 2000 determined to hack his own musical path. He hit his forties before writing his first song, mainly because he was scared to write bad ones. The battle's far from over but now he's got some great songs to share, inspired by favorites like The Beatles and Patty Griffin. His new CD One Layer Down is out January 2013.
