from Rivervie

Born and raised in rural South Carolina he learned to play the guitar from the seasoned old blues players of the Deep South and he is glad to have been part of that great bygone era. He eventually found himself playing in local bands that backed up touring greats like Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Stevie Wonder and many others. Affectionately known as “Static” for his troublesome stutter he spent many years on the road working as a sideman. While many of his contemporaries from the south migrated to other American cities Wes’ path took a different course and he eventually moved to Canada. where he garnered some early success in the country he now calls home. Wes currently lives in Vancouver with family in Nova Scotia.
