Wes Hoke is a Singer/Songwriter from Central PA that blends a variety of different musical styles into his diverse, but unique sounding original music. He starts each song with a riff or chord pattern on the acoustic guitar and then moves onto a main lyric idea or clever hook to tie the entire song together. Wes has been writing songs and playing guitar in bands since high school but really start perfecting his craft in 2002 when he formed his current band Root 74. The band takes each acoustic song and interprets it into a full electric experience for the listener. Wes pulls influence in original work and cover song selections from a range of modern musicians including John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, David Gray and Ryan Adams, an array of jam band artists like Phish, Grateful Dead and Moe and a slew of classic rock artists like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, etc...
