The bright soaring sounds of electro-pop artist WESLEY are truly irresistible. His latest single "Long Way Home" is a collaboration with artist and producer Denny White (Julia Michaels, Tiesto, Ryan Tedder, Lukas Graham) and is a bold sonic success with colorful driving soundscapes and intense passionate vocals. The track details the value in taking time away from your a busy, chaotic life.
WESLEY confides, "We live in such a hectic world we often times forget to take a second to be present with ourselves. Sometimes you just need to go off the GPS and take the Long Way Home".
Blending raspy pop vocals and sampled instrumentals the Minnesota native builds a place where listeners can feel connected in a deeply profound way. Driven by the muse of movement WESLEY states, “I’ve always been someone who likes to move around and explore. I once had an acting coach tell me that I needed to make my car a mobile meditation center, so I just ‘meditated’ on good music and realized that some songs on a road brought out certain feelings that you can’t get anywhere else”.
Growing up listening to legends like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, as well as vintage rock'n'roll, his distinct musical palate led him to craft the genre defying music he has today. ‘Long Way Home’ is a much-needed break from reality, that we all so desperately need.
