John Wesley Harding Bio

Wesley Stace (born 22 October 1965) is a folk/pop singer-songwriter and author who has used the stage name John Wesley Harding. Under his real name, he has written three novels. He is also a novelist, university teacher and the curator of Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders.

He was born in Hastings, East Sussex, England.

His given name, Wesley, comes from John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, who preached one of his last sermons near the town where Harding was born.

Stace’s stage name was the same as the Bob Dylan 1967 album (and song) John Wesley Harding, for which Dylan misspelled the outlaw John Wesley Hardin's name, adding a final 'g'.
