“I see visions of that lost highway again when I listen to Wesley Randolph Eader’s new record, Highway Winds. I see Woody Guthrie riding a boxcar. I hear Townes Van Zandt singing stories in an old saloon. I see mountain ranges in the far distance and desert stretched out all around. I am swept up in the mystery of the road.”
— Let Us Make A Record
“A traditionalist with a taste for Willie Nelson and early Bob Dylan, handles both ballads and barn-stormers with charm”
— The Oregonian

American folk & old-time country singer-songwriter Wesley Randolph Eader has family roots all over Tennessee, but he was born and raised among the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. His storytelling songs showcase a broad understanding of American roots music: country ballads, bluegrass stompers, talking blues, old time gospel camp tunes, topical songs. One article from No Depression placed Eader's distinctive voice and songwriting style within the more mythical tradition of American folk music: «Eader sings each song as if he’s been singing them forever, as if they were passed down like precious heirlooms, or discovered on one of A.P. Carter’s song expeditions”.
Eader’s latest album “Highway Winds» sounds like a long-lost songwriting classic. It was recorded entirely on a 70s tape machine and features, among others: National Old Time Fiddle Champion Luke Price and Eric Earley, producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and frontman of Blitzen Trapper, Rachel Ann Dial, vocalist and guitarists in indie rock band Mero, as well as legendary Portland enginner & producer Danny O’Hanlon on drums. This strong cast of players has helped take Eader's songs, which stand so strongly by themselves, to an even higher level of interest to the listener. Nostalgic ridden Americana music lovers are sure to find «Highway Winds» a more than suitable soundtrack for the road.
