Victoria, BC based composer, arranger, guitarist and vocalist, Wes Carroll is dedicated to reaching audiences with his original creations. His writing strives to surprise and intrigue through swings of volume, groove and emotion. Since winning the 2010 Daryl Marr scholarship though the Victoria Jazz Society, he has received support from the community through several other scholarships and has graduated with a degree in Jazz Studies from Vancouver Island University (2014).
In the summer of 2013 Wes contributed his musicianship and five originals to the record 'Off Pulse Quartet Live in the Holland'. The album was recorded at the end of the quartet's two month stay in the Netherlands. Wes continues to compose and redesign his style with new projects on the go including his quintet Wes Carroll Confabulation featuring Cyril Lodja (drums), Sean Drabbit (bass), Miguelito Valdes (trumpet) and Dakota Hoeppner (keys).
