A few years ago, Gulf Coast singer-songwriter Wes Loper left the area to continue his career in Nashville. Even though Loper stays busy in Music City, his heart remains on the Gulf Coast. Each summer, Loper returns to perform at some of his favorite local venues. This summer, he brings sounds from his latest release, “Natural.” Filled with twang and Loper’s trademark vocals, the six-song collection maintains his excellent country style, shaped by talent and experience.

Loper is also bringing along a musical partner-in-crime. For over two decades, Spencer Maige has been doing what he loves best, which is making music. Maige started his musical legacy in his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida. These days, the regional country sensation performs with his band Reckless across the Southern states. The collaboration between Loper and Maige should be a great way to begin a hot summer day at the beach.
