Wes Leslie is pioneering a genre he calls "bedroom soul." It resides comfortably somewhere between self-aware white kid and Al Green whispering into your ear.
These are hushed ballads that never quite break, rich in personal anecdote, often about travel, love and loss.
Wes appreciates correspondence, and regularly emails stories, songs and cocktail recipes to those who sign up for his email list.
