The Showcase w/ Stephen Patterson featuring Matt Wheeler
Tellus 360 and Music For Everyone are preparing to launch Showcase 2017, season five of the popular singer-songwriter series curated by local songwriter Stephen Patterson.
The 2016 season concluded in October with the sold-out Grand Finale show in which 4 artists from the previous 9 shows each had 15 minutes to convince the audience to give them their vote for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.
On January 18th we will present the first of 9 new headliners who will compete for a spot in the Grand Finale in October. Shows are in The An Sibin at 7:30 PM, 3rd Wednesday of each month.”
Our January featured artist is Matt Wheeler with opener Justin Angelo.
“Trade your coins for a handful of wildflowers & let the summer rain sing you to sleep.” – From “#8”
Matt’s songwriting has gained a reputation for its crisp, taut lyricism & poetic, honest approach, & for its ability to paint vivid pictures with words. Balance that with the rhythm section’s driving bass & drum groove together with the haunting & sweet strains of the violin & the cello, & you have an orchestral folk sound that will draw you in & reward repeated listens. Live shows add in Matt’s signature inviting & fun stage banter.
Called a “Lancaster treasure” by PennLive, Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart has been spreading its words & music from its central Pennsylvania home to listening rooms, churches, bars, house concerts, & festivals throughout the Northeast.
The band’s sound draws influences from the storytelling singer-songwriter tradition of James Taylor, Glen Hansard, and Denison Witmer.“Warm sound & heartfelt lyrics. If you are a fan of Josh Ritter give a listen to Matt!”- Helen Leicht, WXPN Philadelphia
