Welles released their EP “Codeine” on April 28th via C3 Records. “Life Like Mine” is the first single and it easily becomes a song you know and like, its familiarity like a long-lost friend. The songs melody seems effortless and smooth, much like codeine itself (enter smile emoji here). He will be on tour this summer with two big festivals, hitting up Governors Ball and Bonnaroo in June and many more cool places. Tour dates listed below.
The band is fronted by Jehsea Wells, a prolific songwriter, virtuoso guitarist and monstrous vocalist who recently relocated from Ozark, Arkansas to Nashville. Early enthusiasts are comparing the 23-year-old’s distinguished growl and striking lyricism to rock legends, while he readily self-describes the sound as “burnt toast.”
