Wes Carr

Wes Carr has worn a lot of hats in the twenty years he’s been a professional musician, acoustic troubadour, reality show winner and chart-topping pop star. He has been front man of the Silverchair side project Tambalane and was the nations’ sweetheart when he took out Australian Idol.

Wes’ ragged, soaring voice recalling Bruce Springsteen and John Lennon coupled with the rambling spirit and storytelling of Leonard Cohen has taken him around the globe and then some. Wes is a man who has walked through the fire, paid more than his share of dues and has emerged on the other side. He has experienced the highs and adulation few of us will ever enjoy. He’s ridden the rigors of a spell in the music industry spotlight and has arrived with a bag full of songs, bursting at the seams.
