“As it’s been simply put, “Wes Kirkpatrick is hard not to like”. A singer-songwriter of the truest sense, Kirkpatrick writes poetic Americana/folk-pop songs that you hear once and start humming along, hear twice and can’t get them out of your head for days. With an already loyal following, it’s only a matter of a time before we’ll all be singing along”.
In 2009, Wes packed his bags and left long time home Colorado for the Windy City. Shortly thereafter, he teamed up with Chad Weis (tour manager and sound engineer for Martin Sexton, Mason Jennings, Ben Kweller, etc.) to record his first solo album at Weis’s studio in Minneapolis, MN. “It’s was a fun album to make,” says Kirkpatrick. A lot of love, hard work, good times and not so good times went into it and I think in the end I mixed it up enough to make a great album.”
Wes continues to build his fan base with every performance. Wes has shared the stage with the likes of The Milk Carton Kids, The Wood Brothers, Martin Sexton, Ben Taylor , Sean Hayes, HANSON, Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers, Jay Nash and Matthew Mayfield to name a few.
Wes is set to release his second solo album (self titled) on March 26th 2013.
