Wesley Carr's musical life has spanned across many genres. He has studied jazz, classical, bluegrass, and other forms of traditional American music. At Northern Illinois University, Wes studied with jazz and classical virtuoso, Fareed Haque.

He continued his education in East Tennessee's State's Bluegrass, Country, and Old-time degree program where he studied with five time grammy award winner, Adam Steffey.

While studying, he continued working on his songwriting and composition. His original instrumentals have quickly gained attention and brought Wes multiple appearances on the WKPT radio station as well as making him the first musician to appear on the Mountain Music Matinee radio show.
