Somewhere between the haunting melodies, the delicate intricate guitar work & the intensely fragile lyrics; Rob Wheeler has discovered a refreshing new way of doing something timeless... telling stories with his songs.
The self-produced debut album "Little Ghost..." is in short a pop record for grown ups. A collection of folk-inspired warm ballads & glossy Americana-pop songs, yet with a typically British cynical view on love, lust, life, death, hope, regret, Faith & despair. Having received serious critical-acclaim from amongst others Neil McCormick (The Daily Telegraph) & Paul Sexton (BBC Radio 2) the album was followed by singles "Love Somebody"; a live-lounge acoustic version of the Number 1 hit by Baby D "Let Me Be Your Fantasy" & the brand new single for 2020 "Changes" originally written & recorded by rock legends Black Sabbath.
The new album "Ten Embers" due out in 2021, has been recorded with some of the most respected musicians in the world; including guitarist Robbie McIntosh (John Mayer/Paul McCartney) drummer Fred Eltringham (Sheryl Crow/Willie Nelson) and mastered by U2 and The 1975 collaborator Pete Maher.
Where Rob really leaves his mark on you is at his live performances. Hearing this man’s raw, powerful, yet smokily smooth voice over his tender guitar & piano playing, you feel that you've just experienced the musical equivalent of sipping a perfectly aged whisky, sat next to an open fire, as the cruel, cold modern world outside, for a short time at least - disappears.
