Rick Wes (born Craig Gendreau) was a former pop singer from the early ’90s. He was discovered by Maurice Starr (who was well known for working with groups such as New Edition, New Kids on the Block and Perfect Gentlemen). In 1990, Rick released his debut album “North, South, East and Wes” on Columbia Records. The album was a flop, failing to make the Billboard music charts at all.Even “Entertainment Weekly” named Rick’s debut album the worst album of 1990. The title song and “Don’tchu Wanna Rock” were released as singles, but they failed to make the Billboard charts at all. In 1991, Rick released his sophomore album “Possession” which like his debut album flopped as well. After that, it seemed as if Rick had faded into obscurity, but these days (according to a comment I received), he works at Flash Global in Fall River, Massachussetts.
