"Thinking love is worth the fall/The damage healed, & truth is all that remains." - From "Avalanche"
Honest, thought-provoking lyrics & simple but poignant melodies characterize Matt Wheeler's songwriting. With live shows that feature a heartfelt delivery of songs mixed together with a dose of light-hearted humor, Matt's music is easy to like.
Based in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart are emerging with a brand of acoustic folk-rock that reflects faith, love, and what it means to be human. Drawing influences from the folk/singer-songwriter tradition such as James Taylor and Iron & Wine, Matt's musical poetry can range from lilting and sweet to haunting and driving.

He came to this Lancast recording armed with copies of his new solo EP, Ash, and Veritas: Volume 2, a collection put together by his eponymous faith community/church plant which meets in Marietta and Silver Spring.
We converse with Matt about his various music projects and collaborations, as well as his roundabout journey to Lancaster from northern Indiana, his perspective on the intersection of faith and art, and being a (relatively) new father. This episode includes live acoustic recordings of two August to October songs, “Ash Wednesday” and “The Light & The Sea.”
