The epic tale of Wesley Woo, a 26 year old kid with way too many feelings, and far too lofty dreams and aspirations. 

WHO IS WESLEY?
Five years ago, Wesley graduated from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, and a firm belief that he knew everything there is to know about making music...Turns out that's not quite how it works. Believe it or not, by the time he graduated in 2010, he had no idea what he was doing. Or how to be a musician, for that matter.

So he educated himself. With a strict curriculum of trial by error, Wesley started more Rock bands, Jazz trios, and Classical guitar duos than he could count. And would you believe it, some of it actually worked! In the last year, Wesley's album "Do Re Mi" has had radio airplay on hundreds of stations all over the country! He's been on two tours, released three music videos and even found an entire community that loved and supported all of his creative endeavors!

WHY DOES HE NEED YOUR HELP?
Wesley wants to make a go at being a self-sustaining musician. But as it turns out, not many people like to pay for music these days. And what's more, it actually costs quite a bit of money finding ways to bring Wesley's feelings directly to your earholes.

Now he has become exceedingly talented at creating music for you on shoestring budgets with homemade recordings, handmade CDs, and tours comprised primarily of couch surfing and Taco Bell coupons (true story, yes).  But there are some aspects of musicmaking he simply cannot skimp on, so Wesley needs your help. Plus, you get cool stuff!

$2/video - Exclusive Sneak Peaks at Wesley’s New 2016 Album
Wesley’s working on a new record, and you can be the first to hear his new songs. In addition to all lower level rewards, you will receive exclusive mp3 downloads every other month of acoustic renditions of the songs that Wesley is currently workshopping for his new record. Some of these songs may not even make it on the record, so you (COULD) hold in your possession the ONLY rendition of some these songs. Pretty hipster, I know.

Wesley's neighbors are not so happy about how much noise his band and he makes.  Your contributions would make it possible for Wesley to rent a monthly rehearsal space for his band!
