Wes Carroll Confabulation
The Wes Carroll Confabulation walks the tight-rope, balancing detailed arrangements with the power of spontaneity. Since early 2015, they have honed their unique blend: stretching out into a world of hip-hop grooves, soul and electricity while not losing their jazz footing. In the summer of 2018, they released their debut album “Off Empire” which peaked at #4 in !EarShot’s jazz category for national campus and community radio plays. Their set blends singer-songwriter and instrumental with themes that include social justice, surveillance, mental health, climate change and of course, love songs too. The Confab has returned to Victoria BC as Wes has finished his Masters in jazz performance at the University of Toronto. They are currently promoting their 2020 sophomore release: “Elephant in the Sea”.
