The Dallas Morning News said Wesley is one of “the most promising Americana singer-songwriters in Big D. Geiger’s first album, 2014’s El Dorado, plays like the soundtrack to a reflective road trip …”
– The Dallas Morning News, Jan. 22, 2016

“(Leon) Bridges has stayed true to his roots. He is still with the people he started with and now considers them family. He also had Wesley Geiger, the North Texas songwriter he still name checks as one of his favorites, open the show with a great 30-minute set featuring songs from his album El Dorado. Geiger was backed by a great group of local musicians known as the Texas Gentlemen, a great six-piece band with two acoustic guitars and two electric. … Geiger and Bridges both make songwriting seem easy. Their music effortlessly conveys meaning with lyrics and sounds that seem deceptively simple at first listen. Geiger has more of an Americana sound while Bridges leans more towards gospel, soul and R&B. But both make music that could instantly appeal to anyone and also reward repeat listens.”
Dallas Observer, Nov. 16, 2015

“Wesley Geiger and the Texas Gentleman, also from D-FW, primed the room with an … ode to Texas country. The band crooningly worked through its debut album, El Dorado, with sad ballads, foot-stomping honky-tonk moments, and enough slide guitar to make you weak in the knees.”
Dallas Morning News, Nov. 15, 2015 review of Leon Bridges performance

“El Dorado floats out of the speakers like a cool canyon breeze, and I love it. The subtleties within the production make it a bottomless pool of hidden gems …”
– Jonathan Tyler, of Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights

“Wesley’s themes are purely American as he examines man’s search for meaning, and his lyrical prowess allows him to stand tall amongst his contemporaries and the greats that precede him. Truly, an artist is at work here.”
– Beau Patrick Bedford, producer

El Dorado was very much a period of growth for Wesley Geiger, a time when he wasn’t exactly sure where he was going to end up. Which makes for excellent music.”
Dallas Observer

“… losing yourself in El Dorado is all too easy.”

“Wesley Geiger has an amazing sound, and it has to do with his gift of mixing southern rock with that blues feeling.”
