Wes Kirkpatrick on Roots Rock Roadhouse

 

This week's feature is the new EP from Nashville singer-songwriter, Wes Kirkpatrick. There’s a simplicity and a humbleness about Kirkpatrick’s work; it’s familiar without being formulaic. The intimacy of his songwriting blends with a beautifull voice that makes it more than worth a listen. He writes songs that you hear once and start humming along, hear twice and can’t get them out of your head.
