The artist formerly known as John Wesley Harding is now “Self-Titled”
Photo by Ebet Roberts John Wesley Harding is no more. Well, maybe he is a little. The singer-songwriter we’ve known as John Wesley Harding has finally decided to put an album out under his birth name, Wesley Stace. Actually though, his new album is called Self-Titled, so we’re not so sure that actually counts. Wes/John, who has been living long enough in Philly to finally call him a local musician, has been making the transition to his given name over the last several years as a fantastic fiction writer and is releasing his new album on September 17 on Yep Roc Records. The album features a couple of co-writes with Eleanor Friedberger of the Fiery Furnaces, including “When I Knew,” that you can listen to below.
