Wesley Attew is an English born, Vancouver based Singer-Songwriter. He writes evocative Modern Folk Rock that speaks directly to the soul. His songs illustrate the unparalleled sensation of exploring this world and the people in it. The music he makes isn't just for a moment, but for every step of the journey.


Attew spent his late teens and early twenties travelling and working around the UK, Australia, Asia and the Middle East. In 2015, he immigrated to Toronto, Canada where he formed his solo project and made his entry into the music industry. This led him to craft songs composed of poetic lyrics that derive from this extensive period spent travelling. His guitar playing and warm vocal timbre, coupled with a one man band style of kick drum percussion is the ideal backdrop to his opulent songwriting.

At the beginning of 2017 Wesley answered the western call of the mountains and lure of the Pacific, settling in Vancouver, British Columbia. Shortly after he acquired his visa to remain in Canada permanently. He spent the next few years honing his sound, performing frequently across the province (Summerset Music Festival in Fort Langley, Pacific Sound Radio Show etc) self booking his first tour and finding his place within Vancouver's powerful music scene. In 2018, Wesley acquired his Canadian Visa allowing him to stay in the country permanently. 
 

Attew has since recorded an abundance of new material, working alongside producer Jeff Zipp of Light Machine Records on his Debut EP. After releasing three singles in 2020 he was awarded the Factor Canada Artist Development Grant, which helped him pay for the recording and marketing of the record. Wesley also works closely with long time friend and visual collaborator Jack Madeley on his music videos and album artwork, two singles 'Where Do We Go From Here' and 'Black Dawn' were accompanied by eye catching, cinematically charged music videos, directed and produced by Madeley.

On February 19th, 2021 Attew released his much anticipated Debut EP “Where Do We Go From Here”. The record earned a number of glowing reviews from Canadian and International Press, along with radio play on the iconic BBC Introducing Radio show in the UK. Over the course of the release, Wesley’s fierce drive and dedication to be an independent artist has caught the attention of his listeners. He has begun to craft himself a loyal fanbase and expanded his following across all platforms. Since the EP's release his Spotify has skyrocketed, reaching a high of 15,000 monthly listeners and over 125,000 streams. Wesley's music deserves a thunderous global following and he is well on his way.
 

Since receiving Amplify BC's Career Development grant funding in 2021, Attew has already begun working on the follow up to his Debut record..
