Wen Tilley - Johnny Countdown #Flyah Review
Wen Tilley is a Nashville based singer-songwriter/producer. Originally from Louisiana, Tilley began playing guitar at age 11 and was playing professionally by age 13. He graduated from the Baton Rouge High Magnet School program winning All-State jazz Guitarist two years in a row his junior and senior year. Later, he formed the rock group, Func Haus, who were picked up by Chrysalis Records. He then began a career in music production opening a studio in Baton Rouge, La., Kingfish Recordings Inc., where he produced and mixed hundreds of artist recordings and composed and produced three film scores. Moving to Nashville in 2001, Tilley has been mostly a "gun for hire" as a producer/mixer/guitarist for various artists. "Autonomous Spheres" is the artist's third solo record.
"Autonomous Spheres" is Nashville artist Wen Tilley's latest record - an eclectic mix of styles, jazzy, possessing a groove, but Elvis Costello melodic, with hints of Americana and southern rock woven into the aural tapestry. Originally from southern Louisiana, and now residing in Nashville, Tilley's love for roots music, and an evocative lyric, wind through this thirteen song melodic epic of personal struggle and reflection.
