“Wes Sheffield’s new album got its start with a friendship between two Northeast Mississippi guys nearly 2,000 miles from home. Sheffield, a Fulton native, became friends with Tupelo musician Adam Grace, a member of the rock band Truth & Salvage Co., when the two were living out in Los Angeles. Grace’s band stayed on the road a lot, and after Sheffield moved back to the hill country, he caught a Truth & Salvage Co. show at the Blue Canoe. “I hadn’t seen him in a long time, and I sent him a demo of a few songs,” Sheffield said. “He called me a few days later and said, ‘Hey man, let’s do a record.’” With Grace at the helm, Sheffield recorded his debut solo record, “Fever,” in a Nashville studio in September. We recorded it on tape. We wanted to keep that old analog sound. I wanted it to sound warm,” he said. That warm sound complements his bluesy rock sound, influenced by Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles.”
