Biography

Singer and guitarist Wesley was born c. 1981 in White Rock and raised in Brookswood, British Columbia, singing in choirs since elementary school and being part of ukulele and concert bands in high school. At age 15 he formed his first band, The Dropouts, and later was front man of the bands General Mayhem, Audiophile, and Replica.[1] He previously worked as an electrician. He now lives in Vancouver.[2] He recorded the 2006 album "Outlaw" in Langley and the follow-up "Sing & Dance" in 2007. Also later in 2007, he recorded the solo disc "Driftin". The band's influences are Mason Jennings, Bob Marley, The Beatles and Pearl Jam.[2]

His most successful single has been "Ooh Ohh", from the album Sing and Dance.[2][3] The Province rock music critic Tom Harrison wrote: "Sing and Dance has a prominent reggae element but there is also an unvarnished rock sound that sometimes recalls Neil Young."[4] In December 2010 the band released a Christmas song titled "Our First Christmas".

On July 26, 2011, Wesley released, "Easy Livin'", his fifth studio album to date. The album includes current single, "Head Outta Water", along with tracks, "Hello Britain" and "Argentina (Untitled No. 5)". Wesley will be heading out on tour with Matthew Good in Fall 2011 across Canada.

He welcomed the birth of his first son 'Finn' on March 9, 2013.

Daniel released his most recent album on April 9, 2013 'Ocean Wide'. The first single off the album is titled 'Fuel to Fire'.
