Born and raised in Alaska, Wes Colquette writes songs from the heart and the Alaskan experience. Colquette is releasing his debut "Gypsy Heart" in just a couple weeks and shared many selections and the stories behind the tunes. One song that Colquette played did make it on the show but not on the album because he had just wrote it hours before the show.
