Biography

wheeleR exude fun and the ultimate good time. It oozes from every pore. To see them live is to have all your worries cast aside, even for a few hours. Assignments due, shitty boss, unrequited love, can’t pay your rent - what of it? Worry about that later - the gig is like a holiday away from anything that could be described as a bummer.

‘It’s just a laugh - life’s too short to take it seriously’.

You don’t just see a live performance, you become a part of it. It’s as though the brothers have invited you to a party at their place. They’re intent on having a good time, and are dead keen for you to be a part of it. The obvious enjoyment they have for playing together on stage is infectious, and you can’t help but have a good time.

And then there are the tunes - they’re upbeat with hooks a-plenty and catchy melodies and lyrics that will hang about in your head for days to come. No place for melancholy or forlorn teenage woes here - it is all about the fun, taking chances and making good things happen.

Music, fun and a good time - wrapped in a chewy Brit Pop/Rock coating (with a sprinkling of Blues Funk) because who doesn't like an extra topping.

Avid songwriters, the band’s strength and passions lie in performing their original music to live audiences who they continue to excite and delight, winning new fans whenever and wherever they perform, with a wealth of original material the band take audiences on a journey where the eclectic musical tastes of individual members combine to serve up infectious melodies and catchy lyrics that stay with audiences well beyond the performance.

Since their formation in late 2008, the band, which is comprised of three brothers, has appeared on national TV, won a number of competitions (local, state and national) and reached the semi-finals of the International Songwriting Competition. No strangers to live performances, the band have been performing for a number of years at an array of venues including theatres, pubs, bars, cafes and festivals.

Lyrics

ASAP

Written By: wheeleR

Verse1
You can run away
Or you can sit down right here
Next to me
And tell me the things that you’re feeling
You can look away
Or you can look here
Into my eyes
And tell me the things that you’re feeling girl

Chorus
Are you hot are you cold are looking for something (or are you looking for someone)
I’ll do my best
To fix it for you ASAP

Verse 2
You can live a lie
Or you can admit you love me back
Then day and night
Tell me things that you’re feeling
You can build a wall
Or you can give me a chance
Let me in
And tell me the things that you’re feeling girl

Chorus
Are you hot are you cold are you looking for something (or are you looking for someone)
I’ll do my best
To fix it for you ASAP

Are you tired are you sad
Are you feeling lonely (don't be lonely girl)
You know I’d do anything for you

Refrain
Your smile turns around my day
It’s something I cannot explain
Your cry, takes a while to sink in
Then it hits me real hard
And I wish you’d told me earlier
All the things
All the things
All the things
All the things that you’re feeling girl

Chorus
Are you hot are you cold are looking for something (or are you looking for someone)
I’ll do my best
To fix it for you ASAP

Are you tired are you sad
Are you feeling lonely (don't be lonely girl)
You know I’d do anything for you

Coda
Are you lost are you found are you just hiding
Are you in love or are you just joking
Are you tired are you sad are you feeling lonely
Coz you know I’d do anything for you.

I'll Just Wait

Written By: wheeleR

Verse 1
I wanna do what I wanna do
I can only do what’s right
I wanna run I wanna hide
Instead I stand and fight

Chorus
You say you’re not
Ready for any of
This right now
Well I'll just wait
Wait here for you

Verse 2
I wanna tell you all the
Things that I feel (things I feel)
I know instead I gotta wait
Wait for you to heal
The things I want to say

I know you got a busy life (busy life)
I’m just asking for a date
Not for the rest of your life (your life)
Gonna check the movie times

Chorus
You say you’re not
Ready for any of
This right now
Well I'll just wait
Wait here for you

Refrain
And if you think it’s kind
To leave my hopes alive
I’d rather you let me know
I’d rather you let me go
Cos don’t you know it’s cruel
To leave me waiting on you
But if you think there’s a chance
Of some kind of teenage romance
Well I'll wait
Wait here for you

Coda
You say you’re not ready for any of this right now
(You say you’re not ready for any of this right now)
You say you’re not ready for any of this right now
(You say you’re not ready for any of this right now)
You say you’re not ready for any of this right now
(You say you’re not ready for any of this right now)
You say you’re not ready for any of this right now
(You say you’re not ready for any of this right now)
You say you’re not ready for any of this right now
(You say you’re not ready, you say you're not ready, for this, right now)
You say you’re not ready for any of this right now

Well I'll just wait.

Turn Out The Light

Written By: wheeleR

[Do do doo]

I want a girl
In tight jeans
I want a nice girl
who's not too obscene
I wanna take her home
To meet mum and dad
She can show her good side then
maybe later she can show me her bad

Do you ever wanna?

Do you wanna turn out the light
and forget where you are
I can take you places you've never been
Near or far
I wanna turn out the light and forget where I am
Why don't you turn out the light and give me your hand

I want a girl with a straight fringe
I want a girl who's not afraid of living life on the edge
I wanna make her all mine
I ain't got that many rules but that's where I'm drawing the line

Do you ever wanna?

Do you wanna turn out the light
and forget where you are
I can take you places you've never been
Near or far
I wanna turn out the light and forget where I am
Why don't you turn out the light and give me your hand

Sing it loud sing it proud sing it right back
Sing it loud sing it proud sing it right back to me
Sing it loud sing it proud sing it right back
Sing it loud sing it proud sing it right back to me honey

Do you wanna turn out the light
and forget where you are
I can take you places you've never been
Near or far
I wanna turn out the light and forget where I am
Why don't you turn out the light and give me your hand

Take Me Too

Written By: wheeleR

You can do a slow waltz
Or you can break it down
You can wear that million dollar smile
Or you can wear a frown

But if you wanna take this space ship
To the moon
I got one thing to ask
Can you take me too

Can you take me too

Speed around on motor-bikes
You can do what you like
Whisper it in my ear
Scream it to the atmosphere

But if you wanna take this space ship
To the moon
I got one thing to ask
Can you take me too

Can you take me
Can you take me too
Can you take me
Can you take me too
Play that funky bass
Play it in my face
Play that funky bass
Play it in my face

You can do a slow waltz
Or you can break it down
You can wear that million dollar smile
Or you can wear a frown

But if you wanna take this space ship
To the moon
I got one thing to ask
Can you take me

too

Can't Stop

Written By: wheeleR

Wake up and nobody's home
Can't get no signal on your telephone
Start to feel as though you're all alone
Then you turn up the music and you go go go

And now I can't stop got to think on your two feet
Can't stop got to dance to your own beat
Can't stop once you start to move cos it's a
Contagious, outrageous kind of groove

Tonight when you're in your bed
You'll try to remember something someone said
but these thoughts will haunt you till you're dead
I'd rather dance to the music playing in my head

And now I can't stop got to think on your two feet
Can't stop got to dance to your own beat
Can't stop once you start to move cos it's a
Contagious, outrageous kind of groove

Can't Stop
Can't Stop
Can't Stop Can't Stop Can't Stop
Got to move it got to move it got to move your two feet
Don't have to prove it have to prove it have to prove it to me
Got to move it got to move it got to move your two feet
Don't have to prove it have to prove it have to prove it to me

And now I can't stop got to think on your two feet
Can't stop got to dance to your own beat
Can't stop once you start to move cos it's a
Contagious, outrageous kind of groove
Can't Stop
