The Album

Wesley Stace’s John Wesley Harding

Wesley Stace’s brand new album, Wesley Stace’s John Wesley Harding, featuring the legendary Minneapolitan sounds of The Jayhawks! Twelve brand new recordings—11 originals and one cover—released by Yep Roc. Order and enjoy, read the press release, and take a listen to the last track, “Let’s Evaporate.

“Few writers mix sharp literary narrative and snaking pop melodies with the precision of Wesley Stace. 8/10”—Uncut

The book


A delirious and touching novel of fathers and sons, the dangers of compromise and thwarted ambition, told with humor and energy by a writer as comfortable in a rock club as a bookstore. A backstage epic of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but also sippy cups, pillow fights, and Baby Bjorns, Wonderkid is Almost Famous through the looking glass.
