American folk & old-time country singer-songwriter Wesley Randolph Eader has family roots all over Tennessee, but he was born and raised among the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. His storytelling songs showcase a broad understanding of American roots music: country ballads, bluegrass stompers, talking blues, old time gospel camp tunes, topical songs. One article from No Depression placed Eader's distinctive voice and songwriting style within the more mythical tradition of American folk music: "Eader sings each song as if he’s been singing them forever, as if they were passed down like precious heirlooms, or discovered on one of A.P. Carter’s song expeditions”.
