At age 44, Wes Collins and his wife Anita made a pact to become writers: she started writing fiction and Wes penned his first song.
A few years later, they were both multi-award-winners in their fields. Collins more than makes up for lost time with songs so dense with ideas that a first listen only scratches the surface. Come for a haunting melody and some intricate fingerpicking and stay for the wit and deep literary intelligence. There is always more to find in a Wes Collins song.
Wes has played shows from coast to coast including: The Blue Bird Cafe in Nashville, TN, The Kerrville Folk Festival in Kerrville, TX, and many more. He is a winner of the prestigious Grassy Hills New Folk Competition and a North Carolina Arts Council Songwriting Fellowship, and has been featured as a finalist in The Telluride Troubadour Contest in Telluride, CO; The Songwriter's Serenade Competition in Moravia, TX; and The Wildflower Performing Songwriter Contest in Dallas, TX.
Welcome to The Ether, Collins' second record, was produced by Chris Rosser at the top of a mountain during a historic snowstorm. Featuring guest performances by Jaimee Harris, Danny Gotham, and FJ Ventre, it finds Wes at his best: timidly falling in love in “Pelican”, coming to terms with a loved one’s disability in “Stethoscope”, or cavorting with ghosts in “Everyone Dances”. The record ends with his perennial set-closer “I Love You Guys”, an ode to drunken buffoonery and a song of gratitude to the listener.
