Having grown up in a small town in Arkansas, Jesse Wells spent his days living on an artist commune, consuming every book and record he could get his hands on from the local library. Eventually, he made the move to Nashville, and found his bandmates that would make up Welles. Working with esteemed producer Dave Cobb on parts of his debut record, the result is a face-melting album that’s psychedelic and tons of fun.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: WELLES embarks on headline tour + Bottlerock and SandJam Festival
Edgy, throwback rocker, Welles, brings his tour to Johnny Brenda’s on Tuesday February 9.
Welles has just hopped off AltNation’s Advanced Placement tour alongside The Regrettes and Mickey James and is now gearing up to headline cities in the US, including stops at BottleRock and SandJam with Young the Giant and Mumford and Sons.
Taking cues from iconic acts like Nirvana and Led Zeppelin, and blending aesthetics from modern acts like Cage the Elephant or Tame Impala – Welles’ debut LP, Red Trees and White Thrashes, has a sound that in NPR’s words is “huge, putting Welles in the same league as the smart bands reviving rock’s mainstream right now.”
