Dually Noted Music Interview Series: Wes Walker
written by Katelyn Facteau
Wes Walker is certainly a college scene phenomenon—students nationwide are singing“Jordan Belfort”, a song which has over12 million SoundCloud listens, 30,000 iTunes purchases, and nearly 2.3 million views on the Youtube music video. Wes’ collaboration with artist Dyl has exploded, with something that he himself calls a “cool underground frat factor”. But as Dually Noted Staff learned, there is so much more to Wes Walker than “Jordan Belfort”.
While “Jordan Belfort” is catchy and featured at frat houses nationwide, Wes isn’t sure he wants to pigeonhole himself in the college music scene: “the college market is lucrative but I don’t want to be super commercial”. He has a few projects on the horizon that his manager (whom he shares with Trey Songz and Ty Dollar $ign) is working on, and has had a few auditions with MTV to be an on-air correspondent. He recently played at New York City’s CMJ Showcase, and will play at Minneapolis’ Zombie Pub Crawlthis weekend—alongside big names like Sum 41, Soulja Boy, Aaron Carter, Mickey Avalon, and Lil Dicky.
