In the back room of his folks Illinois home, a five year old Scott Wesley was writing his first songs on an old battered upright piano. By high school, he was penning contracts with a label, licensing music to corporate giants like Microsoft, and strutting his tunes at SXSW. Wesley shows no signs of slowing down. With a new album in the works, he even seems to be picking up the pace.
Scott’s energetic stage show opened up performance opportunities in cities across America, seeding in him an adventurous need to fly the coup. He left the blues in Chicago for a more country friendly Nashville, TN. In line with his new found independence, he started to work on his self titled EP with producer Paul Kimsal, this time around, sans label.
"Moving to Nashville has been one of the best career decisions I've ever made," says singer songwriter Scott Wesley. “This is the center of the music universe and I immediately fell in love with the city and its rich country background.”
You can certainly hear the influence that "Music City" has had on Scott's new record. He pays homage to the city's music heritage while comfortably settling down in the country and americana genres. Follow Scott on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/scottwesleymusicpage
