I know of three people named Wes Collins: there's my Dad, there's the power ranger (we haven't met), and then there's me. I'm a husband, a dad and a librarian. I also write songs and play them for people all over the country.
I got a late start to songwriting but I'm all about it now. I took first place in the 2012 North Carolina Songwriter's Co-op Song Contest in, and I made the finals in the 2013 Kerrville TX New Folk Competition. I released my first CD One Layer Down in January 2013, and in 2015 I made it back to Kerrville as one of the six winners. I've played Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, The Threadgill Stage in Kerrville, TX, Blue Rock Studio Stage in Wimberley, TX and more.
In late 2017 the NC Arts Council awarded me a Songwriting Fellowship, and I used that money to fund the recording of my new CD Welcome to the Ether.
In the next year I'll be out there playing my new (and old) stuff everywhere they'll let me. If you want to know when and where that is, or if you'd like me to come to your town, drop me a line. Just click the Contact button!
