Striking like a flash of lightning out of the piney wood region of East Texas, Wes ranks as one of the “Top Young Gun Guitar Players” – Guitar Player Magazine, March 2004.
Wes delivers a soul-drenched mix of high voltage, rockin’ Texas Blues. He commands the stage from start to finish and opens with a spirit of intensity that will surely grab you with his grinding rhythms and stinging leads allowing you a deep look into Wes Jeans’ Marshall, TX roots.
He is a blues-rock guitarist from Texas, whose first album “Hands On” was released in 2000. Jeans was heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix as well as by fellow Texans, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Freddie King.
Probably the most amazing fact about Wes’s talent is that he came in second place in the Jimi Hendrix Guitar Competition in the mid-nineties after only playing the instrument for less than a year!
The next album “Forest of the Pine” he released in 2007. On this record, he also gets some guitar slinging & production help from Lance Lopez and Eric Gales. The guitars are rippin’ and catchy.
In October of 2009 Wes Jeans struck again with the release of his highly anticipated live CD “Live at Music City Texas”, recorded at a sold out show at the Music City Texas Theater in Linden on January 17, 2009. Excellent live recording with another great Texas gunslinger at his best. Plenty of searing guitar solos and not a bad song in the entire set. Guitarist and vocalist Lance Lopez also took part in the recording.
