About The Event
Elonzo Wesley began in January 2015, shortly after the breakup of Charlotte NC’s Elonzo. After moving from Atlanta in the mid 2000’s, singer-songwriter Jeremy Davis (Elonzo Wesley) formed the indie rock band, naming it after his father. The band self-released three full length records and two EP’s, touring the Carolinas and Southeast. By December of 2014, after slowly disbanding for some time, another chapter in this story began.
Carrying his father’s name as a moniker and guide, and with five albums under his belt, Jeremy Davis embarks upon the next steps of his musical journey in form of an Americana String band, blending traditions of the past with unique, soulful songwriting and genre-bending influences. Elonzo Wesley, at it’s best is; the musical truth of the moment, combined with the beauty of what has passed.
"Indie folk group Elonzo Wesley’s Spec is an intense, emotionally heavy record. Covering dire subjects such as the horrific Charleston shooting, as well as cosmic existentialism, it also does so with an incredible warmth. With beautiful, sincere instrumental melodies and arrangements in each song, it’s an album that finds solace in a speck of brightness in the dark." CLTure
