Wesley John biography

Label : Space Records/ Arcade Music. This eurodance project was built around the solo male vocalist John Wesley aka Jean-André Duperron. With Jean-Louis Milford, John Wesley was a member of 80s rock band Century, formed in Marseille in 1979. Century are probably best known for their single Lover Why from the album ...And Soul It Goes in 1986. The band also included Éric Traissard (guitar), Laurent Cokelaere (bass), Christian Portes (drums) and a second guitarist, Jean-Dominique Sallaberry. The lyrics of the band's early successeswere all written by Paul Ives. Century has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. The band split in 1989. However, Jean-Louis Milford teamed up with lyricist Francis Nugent Dixon, and they've been working together since then. In 2006 they produced double CD Timeless.

The single Lover Why was a new version of Century's biggest hit using some of the original song's elements. The vinyl contained 2 versions : Extended mix and a Single mix. It was produced by Jean-André Duperron and Laurent Chapin at Space Studio (in Puteaux, near Paris) for Space Records, released under label Bax Dance. It was licensed in Spain under CNR Music in Spain and Dance Street in Germany.

Meanwhile, he composed, write and produced TNT Beat's single Gonna Dance The Night Away.

Next single was released in 1997. Entitled Words Of Humanity, it was mixed, arranged and produced by Jean-André Duperron and Laurent Chapin at Space Studio for Space Records. It was licensed in Spain under Max Music.

I Can Love Forever was still produced by the same French team and recorded in France, but released in 1998 under Spanish label Max Music. The same year Behind The Mask came out.

2019 : Jean-Louis Milford performed his greatest hits at the Love the 90's Madrid 2019 and he revealed he was the singer of the eurodance project Jonh Wesley. He ended the show singing the 1996 version of the song Lover Why (the Vocal Dream Mix). Which leads to the conclusion that actually Jean-Louis Milford, John Wesley and Jean-André Duperron were one and only person.
