Wesley started performing as John Wesley Harding in the late ’80s (often eliciting comparisons in his early work to Elvis Costello), moved from England to the U.S. in 1991, and has 20+ releases, switching to his own name in 2013 as a result of his success as a novelist.
We discuss “The Impossible She” (and end by listening to “Come Back Yesterday”) from Late Style (2021), whose music was written by David Nagler; “When I Knew” from Wesley Stace (2013), and “Your Ghost (Don’t Scare Me No More)” from Awake (1998). Intro: The title track from Here Comes the Groom (1990). For more see wesleystace.com.
