About this Event

(General Admission)

CHAD WESLEY / THE VINYL SUNS / PHODAGO

*****************************

Chad Wesley

Mississippi Native, Chad Wesley is defined as a Soul-Rock styled Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist. He is a passionate skilled musician that performs a wide range of music with his own spin on each song. With members of his live band having deep roots in Southern Black Gospel, there is a soul, vibe, and tasteful groove factor(almost spiritual)that is missing in modern music. They definitely deliver the driving force of both Chad's live shows and studio album. They open the door for Wesley to be free to roam the vast depths of his soul and distribute the emotions via vocals & guitar.

Chad, born January 28th, 1986 in Fairhope, AL, grew up in a small town outside of Jackson, MS called Forest in Scott County. He started playing the guitar at the age of 8 and singing at the age of 10. Writing songs and learning covers was a constant dichotomy as an upcoming artist making a living in his home city of Jackson. Coffee houses, local festivals, bars and nightclubs made up the greater part of the first 15 years of his professional career that started at the age of 16. He was still in high school performing all night and attending school daily. He moved to Jackson at the age of 19 and has remained there to this day where he bases his whole operation as an artist on the Old Trace Record label via the legendary parent company Malaco Music Group also located in Jackson. Malaco is part of the federally sponsored Blues Trail that runs the musically historical gambit of greater Mississippi - home of American Music.

Chad Wesley has toured multiple states and major cities throughout the U.S. stirring up quite an exponentially sound fanbase through the last half decade. He's opened for several major artists such as Eric Johnson, Drivin' n Cryin', Gary Allan and even George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. He's been the winner of several coveted awards in his home city and state as well as garnering a recent nomination in 2017 for Soul/R&B Artist of the Year @ The Josie Awards in Nashville, TN. His 2016 full-album release: The Liberation LP has gained huge support and plenty of attention that landed his recent deal with Old Trace/Malaco. He recently completed a full length album with 5x Grammy Award winning engineer Kent Bruce and engineer/musician/producer Nick Smith. Though his sophomore release, it feels more to be his "major debut release". Wesley recently won Singer/Songwriter of the Year 2018 at The Jackson Music Awards and won Soul/R&B/Jazz Entertainer of the Year at the 2018 Josie Music Awards . The new album Bluezy is available on all streaming markets.
