Wes Wehmiller '92

Grammy-winning bassist Victor Wooten will headline WesFest 10, a concert to benefit the Wes Wehmiller Endowed Scholarship at Berklee. Wooten will be joined by special guests including Berklee Bass Department chair Steve Bailey.

The scholarship fund honors Wes Wehmiller (1971-2005), a 1992 Berklee graduate and highly accomplished bassist, athlete, and photographer who died of thyroid cancer in January 2005. The scholarship is awarded annually to a continuing student at Berklee who best exemplifies the excellence and grace Wehmiller showed as a bassist and as a human being. This is the tenth anniversary of the WesFest campaign.

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Gardner has spent the last 10 years of his life obsessed with the art of songwriting. His earliest memory is of himself, aged four, playing maracas onstage during a performance of “Hang on Sloopy” with his dad’s band. Gangly and bespectacled offstage, he's a self-described music nerd who has taught himself to be a Pro Tools engineer and bedroom producer. He collects classic ’60s rock albums (the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and the Doors are particular favorites) and owns a thousand vinyl records.

Hailing from San Tan Valley, Arizona, Gardner spends his days writing and recording songs; jamming in the garage with his brother and drummer, Mark; or gigging with his four-piece band. His debut album, Adventures in Real Time, was just released in January 2015, and its first single, "Let's Get Started," has had almost 3 million plays on Spotify. He's known for his brisk hooks and high-spirited melodies, and he counts the Beatles, Ben Folds, and Vampire Weekend among his influences.

Taylor Berrett is a breakout, innovative singer-songwriter signed to the production team of Sturken and Rogers, who are also responsible for signing and developing global superstar Rhianna. Currently in the studio recording his debut album with superstar producers such as Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, One Direction) and Eg White (Adele, James Blunt), among others, Berrett’s music ranges across a musical spectrum from acoustic guitar to catchy pop hits.
