Wes Swing
Wes Swing is a dream-folk singer, cellist, multi-instrumentalist and composer from Virginia. Swing’s style of composition draws on classical, folk and alternative influences to create a “rich and lilting soundscape.” Live performance as a duo features cello loops, synths, electronic beats and transcendent vocals. “Swing demonstrates his vocal prowess with delicate intonation,” delivering lyrics imbued with poetry.

After graduating with a Latin degree, Wes taught for three years before quitting his teaching job and turning to music full time. A love of the classics comes through in his imagist lyrics and arrangements, and his first full length debut album is titled “Through a Fogged Glass”. The album is a landscape of sound, having been written and arranged as one complete work, with the album artwork a landscape painting by Bolanle Adeboye. Swing wrote most of the album in a cabin in the Virginia woods. Since the release of “Through a Fogged Glass” on vinyl and CD, Wes Swing and band have toured throughout the USA and Europe. His music is featured regularly on NPR and by several modern dance companies. He is currently working on two new albums of music (to be released in 2016), and a book of short stories.
