Wes Jeans - Hands On


















Wes Jeans - Hands On - 2000

Striking like a flash of lightning out of the piney wood region of East Texas, Wes Jeans 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.  Wes commands the stage from the 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.

In 1996 Wes entered the International Jimi Hendrix Competition held in Austin, TX and placed an amazing second among fifteen hundred other young guitar players.  Al Hendrix, father of Jimi Hendrix, told Wes, "In my eyes, you won because you played straight from the heart like Jimi!"  These words along with the support of his family and friends set this young Texas Tornado in motion.  Soon, Wes was playing area venues and festivals, attracting booking agents and record labels.

Wes’ debut album was recorded with Al Green’s bass player - John Williams & drummer - Lloyd Anderson, as well as Albert King’s former keyboard player.  Released in 2000, “Hands On” became the highest pre-sale album on Ice House Records label and reached #26 on the National Blues Sales Chart.

In late 2003, Guitar Player Magazine took a poll and readers voted Wes #3 among the “Young Gun Guitar Players” in the nation between Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd (published March 2004).

In June 2006 Wes released his 2nd studio album "Forest Of The Pine" under Texas Music Records.  The album was produced by fellow axe-slayer Lance Lopez and is nothing short of blues/rock perfection.  The record showcases Wes' amazing blues guitar prowess and guest stars Memphis' Eric Gales.  XM Radio’s - Bluesville put “Forest Of The Pine” into heavy rotation – “This cd kicked my ass!  It’s one of the best blues/rock cds of 2006!" - Aaron Lee, XM Radio.  In January of 2007 "Forest Of The Pine" climbed its way up to the 3rd position on the German Blues Radio Charts.

In October of 2009 this Texas Tornado 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.  The walls roared as Wes cranked the show open with "Forest of the Pines", a true representation of his East Texas roots.  It continued to kick into overdrive when Wes was joined on stage by friend and fellow guitar bad ass Lance Lopez.  To top off the nitrous packed performance Wes and fellow song writer Jason Helms performed "Devil in Me", which was just a taste of the future studio CD, "Blood, Sweat and Years".  Fans all across the country agree the closest you will get to the live raw stage power of Wes Jeans is "Live at Music City Texas".
