Wesley Wolfe is a singer-songwriter from Carrboro, NC, a town in Orange Country that likes to brag about being a home for artists and farmers. There are a few bars and you shouldn't have a hard time tracking down the one where Wesley is working. Between shifts he is a musician who has just released Storage, his second album. As a true DIY guy he did most of the work himself: vocals, guitar, bass and drums. Christopher Homick lended a hand playing cello.
Elliot Smith is obviously a big influence and his lyrics are pretty bleak. He likens himself to a seed that grew to become Another Weed: "I'm The Iliad & The Odyssey a cry baby's diary / Thrown into the fire sending out smoke signals to you / I quit the Boy Scouts long ago and I never learned to untie the ropes / Or how to suck the poison out of everything". All the Weltschmertz aside, Storage is captivating effort, with Wolfe's rollicking acoustic guitar and basic drum fills serving as a counterpoint for the seriousness of his words.
