British-born guitarist Wes McGhee hails from Leicestershire, but came to Austin just as the Texas indie scene began to burst in full flower. He's commuted back and forth ever since and worked with just about everybody you can think of, while releasing several albums on his own independent Terrapin label... Most of those records are out of print, but worth tracking down for a pleasant surprise or two...
