High Tide CD Release Party November 30, 2013 at Studio E in Sebastopol, CA

 (Performing songs from the new CD are (left to right) Michael Perkins, Betty Perkins, 
Stan Wells, Jeff Martin, David LaFlamme, and Ted Anderson.)

Born in San Francisco and raised in a musical family, Stan Wells has been writing heartfelt songs most of his life. The High Tide CD spans Stan’s entire songwriting career from the very earliest songs, such as “Two Rivers,” to one of his most recent songs, “My eBabe,” which is a spoof of modern online dating:

“My e-baby just treats me like spam...”

A true testament to his songwriting, Stan was joined by these world-class musicians on his debut album — Ted Anderson, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Nina Gerber, David “Dawg” Grisman, David LaFlamme, Jeff Martin, Betty Perkins, Michael Perkins, and Riggy Rackin.

David Bowling — Cashbox Music Reviews

“High Tide was 35 years in the making and contains a collection of excellent material. Hopefully it will not take Stan Wells 35 years to issue a follow-up.”

David Cowling — Americana UK

…These are like songs from another era preserved in amber… 'Sit Beside Me' has everything in its Sunday best…"

"I have an aversion to polite impeccably constructed music… if this is really your dream then it's a good job you weren't Martin Luther King.”
