Wells' highly improvisatory music and powerful vocals blend rhythms and sound of Soul, Pop, and Hip Hop with the lyrics and harmony of Folk and Jazz. Strongly influenced by the work of Robert Glasper, Jackson Browne, Radiohead, and John Legend, he bends genres to create atmospheres with tight grooves and introspective writing.
Wells originally hails from North Carolina, but moved north when he attended Sarah Lawrence College, concentrating in Music and Comparative Literature. Through the years he has lived and worked as a performer and writer in New York, Paris, and Boston. He has worked under the title of composer, lyricist, music director, singer, pianist, and piano teacher.
