Single: ANNE out from Aug 2nd
“The Future of Irish Country Music”
+ announces gig ‘SHARE A DREAM‘; AUG 24TH RDS DUBLIN
Wes Monroe was born and raised in a large, musical family in the small, Irish, country town of Kilcullen, County Kildare. Just like the birthplace of his Bluegrass hero and Kentucky namesake, Bill Monroe, Wes’s home-county is famous for its ability to breed thoroughbreds and, once again, it has produced a winner.
Wes Monroe’s entire life has always revolved around music and all things musical: At the tender age of eight, he began writing his own songs and at thirteen, already skilled on guitar and piano, Wes joined The Newbridge Marching Jazz Band to study drumming. Less than a year later, he toured Germany and Switzerland with the Dunlavin Youth Orchestra as its main percussionist and, at the ripe, old age of fifteen, Wes was presented with an award for his remarkable vocal and musical talents by the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese.
This gifted young Irishman went on to study music and music-production in London and was the in-house producer/engineer/writer for a number of prominent West End record companies and top recording stars. He returned to college in 2007 and, in order to fund his studies, Wes performed seven-nights-a-week, headlining at the most popular Irish venues in the Greater London area. Massively successful as a solo artist, with his duo and by fronting his own Country band, Wes achieved his Bachelor of Science degree in audio production in 2010.
Very few young Country stars can claim such a wide range of musical experience; yet, Wes Monroe has always maintained that, because so many beautiful melodies and emotions can be conveyed, without gimmicks or gadgets, his real and enduring passion is for Country Music. Wes firmly believes that the real strength of any music lies in its ability to communicate with an audience and he constantly cites the popularity and success of Irish Country Music stars as indisputable proof of his very own personal mantra, “Credible Country Connects”.
While Wes Monroe’s brand of Irish Country Music continues its steady international ascent, his focus is firmly directed at raising his profile in his native country. Together with the cream of Irish Country musicians, this remarkably handsome young Irish Country star will soon embark on a nationwide series of dates and, to coincide with his Irish tour, Wes Monroe and his Country Band will soon release a brand new, original single, from his forthcoming album. Entitled “Annie”, studio bosses have already branded it “a modern Irish classic”.
