"E.J. has done something remarkable. He's released a new album that is at once modern, AND evokes the old West. No small trick. I LOVE this album." Chip Kinman, founding member of Rank and File, and Cowboy Nation

"E.J. first grabbed my attention with a remake of Del Shannon's 'Keep Searchin' (We'll Follow the Sun)', which won him a slot on an upcoming Shannon tribute CD. Wells was chosen from myriad entries, and will appear on the disc with veterans Jeff Lynne, Randy Bachman, Frank Black, Marty Stuart, and others. As a result of this inclusion, E.J. was interviewed on the BBC, as well as several domestic radio stations (Details of this project can be viewed at, and

E.J.'s debut album 'Rhyolite' has just been released. This blazing record features a dozen original compositions, as well as an update of his already internationally heralded version of the Shannon classic.

Wells teamed up with Chris Arduser, longtime friend and current member of Adrian Belew and the Bears, Chris Arduser and the Graveblankets, and the Psychodots. Serving as co-producers and multi-instrumentalists, E.J. and Chris assembled a murderer's row of seasoned players, and brought forth a compelling, unique, and refreshingly original debut disc. Truth be told, it's as good as anything I've heard. It's world class." V.C. Graves- President, Ruin Records

"...The ghosts of old gunslingers and long dead guitarslingers echo to life again in Mr. Wells' haunting epic that plays like a shotgun wedding of Morricone's 'The Good, The Bad, & the Ugly', and all the rockabilly greats of the 50's. Highly original and distinctly American, 'Rhyolite' is an important new contribution to American pop music - and to American folklore and mythology as well..." Tom Toth- The Bohemian Embassy

"...Man and Woman, Rock and Roll, Life and Death, Shortstack and a Longneck..." Richard Ruse- LA Studio Musician (Tom Petty, Robin Zander, Scott Henderson, Jon Bon Jovi)

"...Forget the rest, the West is the best...and 'Rhyolite' is the best of the West..." Chip Kinman- Cowboy Nation

" Dark, fun, twangy and real. 100 American art, no additives..." Chris Casello- The Starlight Drifters

"...E.J.'s 'Rhyolite' rocks! Very nice work, very nice indeed..." Scott Shriner- Weezer

"...E.J.'s 'Rhyolite' paints a vivid and scary portrait of the American West. Wells has a distinct, convincing voice, and the musicianship is outstanding..." Max Crook- Keyboardist, inventor of the fabled Musitron, and co-writer of the Del Shannon classic "Runaway"

"...Man, you write GREAT songs, and the production is EXCELLENT..." Johnny Porkchop Dupree- Host of The Root Hoot, WXKR Radio
