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.
We have resumed our Friday afternoon music sessions at the nursery! We play from 3–4pm (weather permitting). Please come out to hear Well Perked performing the songs from our "High Tide" CD along with our eclectic collection of covers. The nursery will be closing permanently at the end of the 2016 season. Here is a 2009 video of Betty and Stan playing "Here Comes the Sun" at Mostly Natives Nursery.
To see more Well Perked videos, please visit our VIDEO page.
