Video 1/2/2018: Wes Swing

Wes Swing is a singer, cellist, multi-instrumentalist and composer from Virginia. Swing’s style of composition draws on classical, folk and alternative rock influences to create a rich and lilting soundscape of beautifully swelling cello-folk. Swing's cello-looping is accompanied by Jeff Gregerson's minimal electronics and guitar, together creating warm and deeply enveloping string sections to which Swing demonstrates his vocal prowess with delicate intonation, delivering lyrics imbued with poetry.
