BioMississippi Natives, Chad Wesley Band, fronted by Soul-Rock Styled Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Chad Wesley, is a band composed of passionate skilled musicians that play a wide range of music. With members of the 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 CWB. This allows Chad Wesley to be free to roam the vast depths of his soul and distribute the emotions via vocals & guitar. The band has been touring the Southeastern Region of the United States for the last 3 years playing to sold out venues for music fans of all walks of life. Their sound is so distinct due to the exceptional musicianship of the band.
In October of 2012, CWB released its first EP intitled 'The Liberation E.P.' that included the successful single release of the song 'Simply'. The E.P. also included 3 other tracks that were all(including 'Simply') produced by Chad Wesley and Mixed & Mastered by Grammy winning engineer Kent Bruce of Malaco Records in Jackson, Mississippi.
2013 started off with a bang as the band embarked upon an 8 state 22 city tour that lasted 6 weeks. 'The Cathead Vodka Tour' was a huge success and catapulted the band into a higher echelon of elite regional recording/touring acts in the U.S. As the rest of the year progressed, the band made a huge addition that changed the face of the group forever. They added dynamic vocalist & personality Nikki "Vagabond" Reed to the group as a co-vocalist to Chad. The show evolved heavily as their already high energy show went through the roof.
After completing a hugely successful tour and run of shows throughout 2013, CWB started off 2014 by signing and independent record deal with Jackson, MS based label NOW! Entertainment Group(www.nowentertainmentinc.com). While still performing consistently all over the region, they have begun recording their major debut record set to be released before the end of the year.
