About Wes Little

Wes Little holds an MM in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, a BM in Music Performance from East Carolina University and occasionally teaches at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. Additionally, Wes teaches privately from his own recording studio, Coop DeVille, also located in Nashville, TN. Although he has toured the world with Blues Guitar great Robben Ford and all over the United States with various country artists, he is now primarily a session drummer in Nashville, TN performing with hundreds of artists and playing on thousands of recordings. Wes is currently working on my own video series, “Deep Dives on Deep Grooves,” as he has learned that being able to play a great feeling groove is what has kept him employed in the music business for nearly 40 years. He has performed or recorded with these artists that are from many different styles and eras. However, they all have one elemental need in common from a drummer: a good solid groove.
