An Artist & Auteur you'll actually enjoy working with
Wells brings a genuine – and uncommon – sensitivity to each project, offering a very relaxed and intimate working environment that emphasizes talent, fun, and a truly collaborative approach. As a composer and performer – who is no stranger to some rough multistate touring – he knows how to keep the hard work feeling light, always extending the extra effort to remain calm, cheerful and open to an evolving vision.
A former film critic, he's a film buff who truly loves the history of sound in cinema; who loves to laugh, discuss film, play music, and eat at the local neighborhood pubs. But simmering within is a workaholic: if you talk on your phone too much when it’s time to work, you might be banished to the pinball room.
I'm with the Band."
Wells is a multi-instrumentalist and performing cornetist, guitarist, and singer in popular Portland groups such as MarchFourth, Trashcan Joe, The Libertine Belles, The Nowhere Band, and The Saloon Ensemble. In every performance – from a local pub to a colossal stadium, from a family-farm wedding to an epic multiday festival – Wells' passion for music shines through in every performance.
