is worth the fall/The damage healed, & truth
is all that remains." - From "Avalanche"
Honest, thought-provoking lyrics
& simple but poignant melodies characterize
Matt Wheeler's songwriting. With live shows that
feature a heartfelt delivery of songs mixed together
with a dose of light-hearted humor, Matt's music
is easy to like. It is because of all of this that
Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart's songs have sparked
the interest of WXPN, WJTL, The Andy & Patrick
Show, Good Day PA, Around the Wood Stove, &
numerous other media outlets.
Based in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania,
Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart are emerging with
a brand of acoustic folk-rock that reflects faith,
love, and what it means to be human. Drawing influences
from the folk/singer-songwriter tradition such as
James Taylor, Glen Hansard, and Iron & Wine,
Matt's musical poetry can range from lilting and
sweet to haunting and driving.
Strings EP caught my attention, especially the violin
& cello on the song “Avalanche”.
