“I’m driving home tonight, but where is my home?” Sings Chicago based singer/songwriter Wes Kirkpatrick. Wes may live in Chicago, but his hook filled songs will find their way to you and will keep you singing along wherever you are. Wes has recently teamed up with Chad Weis (tour manager and sound engineer for Martin Sexton,Mason Jennings, Ben Kweller, etc.) to record his first solo album at Weis’s studio in Minneapolis, MN. “It’s really the album I’ve always been trying to make,” says Kirkpatirck. “A lot of love, hard work, good times and not so good times went into it and I think I’ve mixed it up enough to make a great album.” The album is due out this summer on My Forlorn Wallet Records. In 2009, Wes packed his bags and left long time home Colorado for the Windy City. While in Colorado, Wes released two albums “Here We Go” (2005), “Opportunity” (2009) with his brother Ryan and their band The Kirkpatrick Project. Touring in support of those albums Wes played on stages of festivals,Universities, on Live TV and in venues such as The House of Blues, Genghis Cohen, Hotel Café, Schubas,Double Door, The Walnut Room, The Soiled Dove, The Fox Theatre, The Aggie Theatre etc. With a new set of songs and a new band, Wes will revisit many of those same stages along with a great host of new ones. Although he’ll have some new faces with him, Wes will still be bringing the same fun, enjoyable feel that has drawn fans to him in the past.
