Frontier man, Wentworth Kersey, is a psych-folk avant-americana artist from the plains of Colorado. Mister Kersey consists of Joe Kersey Sampson (A Dog Paloma) and Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens (George&Caplin) who met while playing "A Soundtrack for Suicide" at the Youth Hipster Halfway House during a lost era of western greatness. Wentworth Kersey was born out of the need to explore new palettes of sound within the existing structures of Americana. The result feels like a “sci-fi folk experiment” with Joe Kersey Sampson providing his folk compositions and Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens becoming a backup band with his sonic landscapes. “The resulting illusion of an entire alt-folk ensemble is seamless and captivating.” (Westword Magazine) Most recently Wentworth Kersey was honored by The Denver Post as #1 "Artist you may not know yet, but will."
