We had the good fortune of connecting with Wes Luna and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Wes, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I have my own record label called Crank It! Records. I decided to launch it because in the past I’ve had friends launch successful record labels and I decided to do the same thing. As well as wanting to promote bands I thought no one else would of heard of otherwise.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have a new record coming out called BLISS that I’ve been working on since the pandemic hit. Working with legendary producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden). I’m playing all the instruments myself because I don’t have a band. I’ve been touring in bands since I was 14 and I’m 32 years old now.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Yes. I’d like to thank my friends, & family. Also like to give thanks to my former band The Photo Atlas. Whom I’ve learned A lot from about the music industry. Most importantly I’d like to thank my fiancé Amy. For always pushing me the extra mile and encouraging me to never give up on anything.
