Bio

West Coast artist/producer, Wes Period was raised in La Habra California but found roots in Los Angeles when he began seriously making music in the early 2010s. Bringing a bright and often hazy lyrical flow to a variety of production approaches, Wes honed his musical style on early releases like 2011's Friendly Fire EP and early singles, often centered around partying and the always sunny California lifestyle. In 2015, he dropped both the Photosynthesis EP and the "Champaign Champion" single along with being handpicked as an opener by rapper Vic Mensa to open several of his shows. In 2016 he teamed up with Ye Ali and singer Tommy Genesis to form the side project baby.daddi, releasing a four-song EP that summer. With more exposure than ever before, he completed work on his long-labored debut LP, Late Bloomer, which saw release in early 2017.

Wes' music fell into the hands of hit songwriter, Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, DNCE), who quickly signed Wes to Justin's record label, Facet Records. Since then, he's released a track called "Trap Star" and his song "Big Bag" was picked as the theme song for "Ball in the Family," based around the life of LA Laker's point guard, Lonzo Ball.
