"This music gives an audio backdrop that would make your eyes want to follow your ears and find the beauty all around" The Wild Honey Pie
"A classically trained musician who began playing violin at the age of 4, Wes Swing is creating a very unique and personal style of music that is unlike most of what I've heard in Charlottesville. By drawing together elements of minimalism and modern classical pieces with expressions of folk that are at times reminiscent of the late Nick Drake, Swing hopes to push upon the boundaries of what defines the singer-songwriter genre." Shaun Harvey, The Velvet Rut
"A string quartet combined with an alt-rock edge. A surprisingly great combination that's very calming." Hearsay Magazine
