"Every time I perform out on the street, it is unique and funny in its own way. Every person is different, every person has a quirk or something that they bring, so it makes every day different."

Wesley was raised all over the world, and he believes it gave him a lifelong passion for music and people. He combines high-energy showmanship with down-to-earth charm, and that, plus his beachy-vibe sound, means there is always an affectionate crowd gathered 'round. He's currently booking tour dates to promote his latest album and to grow his fan base here and abroad.

You're likely to find Wesley in Little 5 Points or Centennial Olympic Park.

Having never been a fan of anything involving a guitar, I must say that listening to Wesley actually makes me reject that notion, as his music pierces the soul with each passing second. Good job Wesley and keep it going!

I'm known Wesley since the beginning. I would have to admit, he has matured in songwriter in performance, and in himself. I've always thought a person with a huge heart and uplifting personality will always bring the best to the world. Thanks Wesley for making it all happen.

Wesley Cook is not only an amazing talent, but he is generous with his gift. His music makes you feel good, and his warm personality shines through in his giving nature. He has a lot of music in him. Everyone should have the pleasure of hearing him.


I live in Tuscaloosa, AL, and after the tornado on April 27th, some friends and I decided to put together a benefit concert to raise money for relief efforts. Wesley volunteered his services. His heart is always where it should be; he is an incredible artist and a tremendous human being.

I first befriended Wesley on Facebook Sept. 2009 and just met him in person at a venue on June 11, 2011 didn't realize what I was missing. To see him play and the way he interacts with the crowd really shows how this man is in touch with his fans. I look forward to being friend and filming him.

I remember Wesley Cook- a young kid, hustlin', bojanglin' and puttin' up posters for shows. I admired his spunk and youthful optimism. I invited him as a guest on my radio program. I told him that one day the world would know his songs.

Looks like he may be one step closer to proving me right.

Wesley Cook is not just your average "guy with an acoustic guitar" that you find at your local bar. He actually puts soul into his performances. Wes engages his audiences. Instead of trying to avoid him he draws you in.

Wesley is such a bro! His penchant for chill sounds is matched only by his desire to rock lighter and more generically than both of his idols (Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews)!
