I’m Wes Watkins. You may have seen me, playing around the world with groups like Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Izcalli, Wheelchair Sports Camp, Air Dubai, and my group Other Black.
   My roots come from gospel, and jazz, and R&B. And it’s grown into a pretty unique sound — part OutKast, part Sly & the Family Stone, maybe some Miles Davis. But what I love most about the music is creating a space where others can experience themselves, as they truly are, and be together, without filters. That’s when we see each other and find the joy in being human.
   I’m asking for your patronage because I find that it has become very difficult to be able to afford being an artist. It’s equally difficult for me, as an artist, to find peace of mind in other work when I am distracted by my frustration in not committing myself to my craft.
   I am a trumpet player of 12+ years, and I play nearly every/any other musical instrument as well… I’ve experienced both sides of the "break," having started playing on the streets for years, and then going on to earn gold records …only to find myself a struggling artist once again.
   I have spent the past decade writing and recording my music and am only missing the peace of mind to be able to afford creation. Together, with your help, we can make joy for all of us who really need it.
   Join me as a patron and you will get the best interactive experience and see what it means to be an artist. There will be composition, production, and instrument lessons as well as tons of music from me. I will always be about the music, but with your help, we can make music together. And be better together. Join me!
