Wes Kirkpatrick And Ira Wolf says
Wes Kirkpatrick
"As it’s been simply put, “Wes Kirkpatrick is hard not to like”. A singer-songwriter of the truest sense, Kirkpatrick writes poetic Americana/folk-pop songs that you hear once and start humming along, hear twice and can’t get them out of your head for days. With an already loyal following, it’s only a matter of a time before we’ll all be singing along". - Relix Magazine

Following the successful release of his sophomore solo album, Wes spent a good amount of time on the road. Touring with bands such as The Milk Carton Kids, The Wood Brothers, Martin Sexton, Sea Wolf, Bobby Long and Ben Taylor along the way.
That time on the road inspired many songs for his follow up EP 'Short Dream'. “I like to write in hotels, planes, trains etc.” explained Kirkpatrick. “I travel by train as much as I can. I love the atmosphere on trains. It’s laid back and friendly during the day, and at night it makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time. In a sleeper car at 2am, sipping whiskey, listening to the train whistle and watching the world roll by, that’s when I would write”. With new songs piling up, Wes reached out to his fans to help fund the record, and they came through, exceeding the goal with time to spare.

Ira Wolf
Hailing from the mountains of Montana, and making a home in Nashville, TN, Ira Wolf's music and writing is filled with "..original and accessible lyrics without a hint of cliches." With two studio albums to share, Ira has performed on stages across the U.S., parts of Europe, and Southeast Asia since she began touring in 2014. She draws from personal experience, and connects on an intimate level with her audience through her honest lyrics and melancholy vocals. With roots in folk, americana and bluegrass genres, Ira has found a unique sound that resonates well with any crowd.

A former Berklee College of Music student, a 2015 finalist in Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, and a scholarship recipient for Folk Alliance International's 2015 Conference, Ira has been recognized for her lyrical content, and vocal capabilities, along with her fearless dedication to a full-time touring schedule as a soloist. As she has continued living on the road throughout the past two years, her music and lifestyle have been featured in blogs such as She-Explores 'Women on the Road', as well as Sonicbids 'Success Stories'.

Ira recently released her sophomore album, 'Honest', and is currently on 'TheGowesty Tour', traveling in a 1988 Volkswagen Vanagon Camper for five months across the U.S. She plans to continue touring extensively in the states and internationally in the coming months, while writing for her next project.
