Wesley was born in a monolingual family in 1992 Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. Wesley Balland speaks Portuguese, English, French and Spanish, he started learning languages as a self-taught at the age of 15, trying hard to increase vocabulary with lists of words, listening to radio, reading articles and searching for the lyrics of his favorite songs in English, which was his first foreign language and still the focus of his studies. Since his passion for languages came across with his passion for music they seem to be walking together.
