“Wesley picked up the guitar at the age of 6 and by age 14 was touring Europe with his own projects ‘Heart Of Blues,’ ‘Woodoo,’ ‘Had’ and ‘Supersession Group,’” according to Orsolic’s online biography. “He become a leading guitarist in his native country Croatia. Wanting to broaden his horizons, he attended Berklee School of Music in Boston and within two years was invited to Los Angeles by Motown Records. It was at that time he decided to make his new home the United States.
“From New York to Hawaii, as a player , songwriter or producer, Wesley always leaves a lasting impression. With his own band T.O.T., later called Raw Nature, Wesley moved from L.A. to Las Vegas to San Francisco and finally settled down in Lake Tahoe. Living at the lake seems to provide him with the kind of radiating energy that inspires creativity.”
Wesley’s latest album, “Carry On,” was released in April 2014. This project is a blend of blues, funk and soulful rock.
“Wesley’s musical upbringing contains a large amount of funk/jazz and blues,” according to the bio. “His unique playing style reflects his ability to successfully combine the elements of all these styles.”
