After going solo and releasing new material, Wes King has a new found freedom and is certainly destined for success. The talented musician, lyricist and singer, wrote, recorded and self produced his previous two single releases “ Living Strange” and “ Loaded Gun” and has brought the same talent and electricity to his new EP “Easy Art”.
“Easy Art” provides listeners with more musical diversity as well as featuring his well-received previous singles. With future plans of getting a full band behind him on the horizon, Wes is currently carving out his own style and niche and we see him experiment on “Somebody” that features on the EP ,which was produced by Mark Allen and features vocals from Bea King.
Gaining overnight success via his debut single “Living Strange” after taking the difficult decision to leave Tres Kings, Wes’ strong lyric and stunning vocal delivery resulted in 10 000 listeners in the first month and also garnering a healthy online following at the same time.
Continuing to soar to new heights, “Loaded Gun” followed the release of “Living Strange” and brought another side to Wes’ dynamic and versatile sound. it is a totally guitar driven and highly praised track which was a perfect upbeat summer tune, becoming the soundtrack to our summer here at Our Sound Music.
Starting life in Maidstone in Kent, Wes King has crafted and perfected his work and continues to find new ways to express his music . “Easy Art” is sure to solidify King as one of the most notable newcomers of the last twelve months.
