A troubadour, a poet with a guitar, a stage banter-conversationalist – all terms that describe Matt Wheeler’s music & performance style well. Matt’s songwriting paints pictures with words, often drawing inspiration from classic works of literature or simply spinning new original stories in song. Lyrics & dynamics play a key role, as each song really means something, and each one is delivered with an honesty that is compelling. When playing solo, Matt draws audiences in with engaging stories and interaction, while shining the spotlight on the lyrical strength of his songs. When joined by his band Vintage Heart, the poignant lyrics meet expressive strings and driving percussion to make orchestral folk songs that rewards repeated listens. The result is a pleasing sound that recalls wordsmiths like Denison Witmer, Iron & Wine, and James Taylor.
“Warm sound & heartfelt lyrics. If you are a fan of Josh Ritter give a listen to Matt!” – Helen Leicht, WXPN Philadelphia
Vulcans is an award(s) winning three-piece Americana/Folk-rock band hailing from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, but is now playing its way across the heart and mind of Pennsylvania. Disheartened by the overly produced and formulaic music, band members Nick Lindsay, Aaron Spangler, and John Thomas are in search of a more understated and traditional style of music, emphasizing unique harmonies, sincere lyrics, and tight musicality. From the listening rooms of central PA, to the bright lights of Philadelphia, to the stages of festivals like FireFly Music Festival, Vulcans seek to remind their audience of a time and place they once knew. It’s time to come home.
