The wait is almost over! From all of the anticipation for the release of his critically-accailamed EP album dropping in just mere 24 hours, Wes has decided to give his fans a taste of what's to come by giving the first-ever look of the EP artwork!
Because this is his official debut EP release, Wes really wanted an artistic and iconic look that stayed true to his folk-grass roots but also aired a hint of mystery.
"This EP is a collection of songs I have written over the last three years. It's about self-discovery and personal growth. I have no idea where I'm heading but this is where I came from".
'Worth It' and his latest leading single 'Consequence' off the album entered this year's semi-finals of the international Unsigned Only music competition - where 'Worth It' has now advanced into the finals under the Screen Shot category.
