Willie Wells, the son of the late Bill Wells has always been on the music scene. Since the early 70’s Willie has played drums, sang lead and harmony vocals. Willie and another musician friend organized a country music group called “CHOYCE’ that ran for more than twenty years. Having early country music and bluegrass influence from his father, Willie continued to develop and expand his musical direction toward recording studio production.
In the past ten to twelve years is when the Bluegrass influence kicked back in which prompted Willie to dedicate his musical direction to continue the Bluegrass legacy that his father started. Being inspired by his father to play guitar and to be at the helm of the “Blue Ridge Mtn. Grass” band (BRMG) that his father started some forty years ago, Willie is keeping his father’s wishes to preserve Bluegrass music in South Carolina.
Just as Willie Wells & The Blue Ridge Mtn. Grass first album title says “Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow”, tomorrow’s direction for the BRMG’s second album project is original songs, good music, and continue to promote Bluegrass Music throughout the community and Bill’s Music Shop & Picking’ Parlor.
With their new release, an all Gospel album on Son Sound Records, Willie and the band have chosen a collection of original songs and well loved tunes for their fans that they hope will be treasured for years to come.
