Wesley Carroll Wesley Carroll

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).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
