About Wes Tirey

Everything about Wes Tirey is compelling, hell even the town he lives in is interesting: Black Mountain, North Carolina. Just hearing that I'm spinning up crazy stories about the people in his town. I knew I had to find out more about Tirey, so I dropped him a line to see if he'd do an Inside The Songs. I hope you get the same chance I did to really listen to the music that Wes Tirey is making. He's got a powerful vision.
