Alt-country artist Paul Wheeler recreates the fat sound of a full band with just two keyboards and an acoustic guitar. This singer/songwriter from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains sings all the vocals and performs all the music in his live shows; everything that sounds like electric guitars, strings, percussion, drums and bass - isn't. Paul's songs are notable for their intelligent lyrics, catchy melodies and straight-from-the-headlines subject matter: "charity" tells the tale of a drifter's brush with death, "overload" follows a serial killer as he strikes again, "atmosfear" takes aim at pollution and global warming, "deep water" looks at life from a whale's point of view, and "combine in the rain" decries the decline of the small farm and farmer. On the whimsical side, "long-neck beers and long-legged women" celebrates a workin' man's two greatest loves, while "86 proof" is an ode to high-octane bourbon. Strong lead vocals and sweet harmonies add the finishing touches to "Insights and Late Nights," Paul's upcoming self-produced collection of alt-country, American rock and contemporary folk songs. Watch for it in early 2014. Paul plays Korg Krome and Triton synths and a 1977 Martin Sigma acoustic guitar with ProMag pickup. Paul recorded and mixed "Insights and Late Nights" on a Korg D3200 Multitrack Digital Recorder. Special thanks to Janet Sessions (harmony vocals) and Jordan Breeding (electric guitar) for sittin' in on "overload."
