BC Music Scene – Daniel Wesley

Daniel Wesley was born in White Rock, B.C. and raised in Brookswood – a community in the Township of Langley, B.C. Wesley has eight albums, one EP and one live recording which was performed at the Commodore Ballroom.

Wesley has been posting journals on his website over the years. He mentions that a few years ago, him and his family decided to sell their townhouse out in South Surrey, pack up, and move to a 4.4 acre lot on the Sunshine Coast in Roberts Creek – something Wesley says was a bit out of his comfort zone.

Wesley wasn’t sure if creating music was going to support him. So while working full time he decided to finish his electrical ticket and also continue making music and doing live shows. Well, Wesley finally had about enough and says “I did what anyone in their mid 30’s would do and quit my job as an electrician to focus on my music career”. Which is crazy if you think about it. Gambling on yourself is a power move, and Wesley is all in.

He dropped an EP in June of last year titled “Beach Music” which included 5 songs that Wesley thought had a more common style. Then released the full album “Beach Music” later on in September 2019.

Wesley has a pretty unique style with many different instruments. His style is kind of that West Coast Reggae Rock. The type of music you throw on while you’re sitting around the campfire at the beach with a bunch of friends. Crack a beer, light up a joint and sail into the night. He’s created several sing alongs that you just can’t help but belt out.

There’s no plans as of right now for a tour involving Wesley. I’ve yet to see him perform live, but I’ve heard incredible things. One things for sure, the day we get back to some normalcy and he announces a tour, you better believe I’ll be first in line for tickets.
