Kid Wezel is the alter ego of Wezel and Shady Rosy. She is a Canadian singer/songwriter based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Kid Wezel tries to avoid performing in public except for a few friendly jams, and would much prefer to record her material in the studio.
Recently, thanks to the borderless quality of cyberspace, she has been able to carry out various internet collaborations with other artists. Track 1, Shady Rosy, Track 5, Season of Your Heart, Track 7, Freight Train with Burnin'' Vernon, Track 9, Ridin'' Around With the Rag Top Down, and Track 11, Set in Sand, are all internet collaborations to a greater or lesser extent.
Tim Johns (the lead guitar player for a Toronto group called the Meteors) has done guitar arrangements for many of her demos. Tim has been doing all the recording for Kid Wezel since 2003. In 2003, she hooked up with jazz bassist Alfred Gertler who has done some song arranging for her. Alfred can be heard on Tracks 2 and 3.
In 2004 she started working with bassist/multi instrument musician Michel Plourde, you can hear Michel on Siren Call.
Jazz pianist Ron Davis and Sax player Patricia Wheeler, have also contributed to Wezel songs... You can hear Ron on and Patricia on Lay the Blame and Cry Cry Cry.
More recently she hooked up with bassist Tony Laviola. Tony hasn''t recorded anything yet, but the hope is that he will do so soon.
