WESSON is a British alt/rock band led by singer/songwriter Chris Wesson. Based in Milton Keynes, the four-piece band was formed under the mutual decision to find like-minded souls who needed music as part of their everyday life and essence to their being. Along with bassist Callum, guitarist Jimmy, and drummer Dale, WESSON creates music which is relatable, conversational and meaningful.
With each band member coming from a different musical background, WESSON soaks up an amalgam of influences, resulting in a collective mix of pop, punk rock and indie with soaring vocal parts and an overall sound which is entirely its own.
Emitting a gritty rock undertone, bold melodic bass riffs and driving drum beats, WESSON delivers a soundtrack to everyday life events, touching on reflections and memories that pass them by. Their organic approach to songwriting allows their music to be honest and identifiable. Spreading messages of living unapologetically, the band shares, “We hope to inspire others to be honest with their life and not be frightened to be themselves.”
Their latest track 'My Self' narrates recognising vulnerability, mortality and individuality while soul searching and looking for meaning and a purpose to life. The band share, “My Self is about being triggered by watching people go about their daily activities and reflecting on how pointless it all seems in the grand scheme of things.”
The track instantly hooks listeners in with its driving, upbeat percussion, gritty guitars, and infectious harmonies. With a toe-tapping rhythm the band takes you on a reflective journey. With thought-provoking lyrics, they shed light on the human experience, urging listeners to reevaluate the meaning of life and take time for moments of self-discovery.
Having gigged across the UK, supporting artists such as The Bluetones, Callum Beattie and Lucy Spraggan, WESSON are set for an exciting 2023, with more releases and gigs to be announced soon.
