Case study for Wes Youssi album release.
Wes Youssi is a songwriter and musician from Portland, OR. Born in Chicago, IL, he spent his formative years living in rural Belvidere (Boone County), surrounded by two corn farms and a large swath of empty woods. His passion for country music began at six years old listening to his grandmother play Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves records.
In his short life he has bused tables in Indiana, punched someone in the face, been laid-off, married, made children, lived in Detroit, ate a cockroach, shot down a tree, and unknowingly purchased a former cop car. He’s presently playing music, meeting great people, and hustling in and around the city of Portland. His dream is to get back to the old woods; before they get cut down.
Band Members: Don Lawry (Drums), Steve Moore (Lap Steel), Jesse Cunningham (Electric Guitar, Pedal Steel) and James Sasser (Bass, Backing Vocals).

Paste Magazine recently featured Wes Youssi's new album, Down Low, with a full review.
Just like friction fueled relationships, “Crazy Train” is locomotion going off the rails or a blazing wildfire.
Ear to the Ground
"Youssi’s vocal sounds as genuine as a Carter or a Cash." [1/10/2018]
Kerriann Curtis, Wordkrapht
"Youssi croons while the steel guitar soothes, and all of a sudden we are all transported a dive in the middle of nowhere and we never want to leave." [11/13/17]
Madison Desler, Paste Magazine
"Down Low is an impressive and charming debut that goes down like a glass of ice-cold sweet tea." [1/16/2018]
Christopher Moon, NoiseTrade
