Wes Collins

2015 Kerrville Grassy Hill New Folk winner Wes Collins calls his music “guitar-driven folk-pop with teeth.” He released his debut album, One Layer Down, in 2013. Since appearing at Kerrville, Wes has played throughout the Southwest, from the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to a formal showcase at the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conference in Austin. 

In 2017, Wes took second place in Moravia Texas's 2017 Songwriter Serenade and received a songwriting fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council, which funded his brand-new CD Welcome to the Ether.

His skill with the guitar makes the most of his imaginative arrangements and nuanced control of cadence and phrasing, underscoring the subtlety and bite of his lyrics.
