He released an album called Rhyolite on Halloween, 2002. Other performers on the album included Rick Nease and Chris Arduser of psychodots, Graveblankets, and The Bears].

In 2008, Wells and Dan O'Connor wrote several original songs for an episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent called "Reunion," and starring veteran rocker Joan Jett.[2]

Wells' song "Hearsedriver" has made him something of a celebrity in the hearse club community. Wells, along with Zachary Byron Helm of the Denver Hearse Association created a video for the song. The video got high ratings on YouTube and was showcased on hearseclub.com.[3]
