Nashville based singer songwriter, Michael James Wheeler will be performing at The Foundry in Brecon on Friday, 7 July.

Originally hailing from Vermont, and experiencing stints in Montreal, New Zealand, Augusta, GA, Key West, Colorado, Wisconsin, and Kentucky, Wheeler will be bringing his talents to Brecon.

Michael's debut LP, Roll Another Dime, produced by Grammy-winning studio engineer, Rob Eaton, was released by Pacific Records in March of 2022.

The record features appearances by Adam Chaffins, Todd Smallie, Rob Eaton Jr., and Sierra Ferrell.

2017 marked Wheeler's solo debut with 'Sunbeams All Twisted,' a mostly stripped-down acoustic collection of Michael's lyric-heavy Americana numbers. 

It was a 7-song EP that featured accompaniment from award-winning New Zealand fiddler, George Jackson, and Vermont pedal steel heavyweight, Brett Lanier (The Barr Brothers). 

He then released a collaborative digital EP, 'The Countin' on you Sessions' with Rachel Baiman in 2020.

Wheeler then spent three years touring consistently before settling back into Nashville life in 2018.

He recently opened for James Taylor & Jackson Browne in San Diego, and has appeared before contemporary Americana heavyweights Nikki Lane, Tyler Childers, & Kelsey Waldon.  

In recent years, Mike has performed at Folk Alliance International, ROMP, Maverick Festival (UK), Dark Songs, Aiken Bluegrass Festival, The Frendly Gathering, IBMA: World of Bluegrass, Steelbridge Songfest, and countless clubs, and pubs.

He has toured nationally and abroad with Crying Wolf, Gold Town, The Red Valley Flyers, Dyer Hill, and The Hardcore Grass, collaborating with members of Pokey LaFarge, Hackensaw Boys, Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, The War & Treaty, and many others along the way. 

'Roll Another Dime' is available now everywhere where music is streamed and downloaded.

Tickets are available at £5 before the event or £8 on the door.

They can be bought at The Foundry or via Eventbrite.
