CHERYL WHEELER

Gifted Writer, Natural Storyteller, Legendary Singer!

Folk singer/songwriter CHERYL WHEELER is a natural storyteller with a beautiful voice; though her songs are often emotional portraits of people, her live concerts include comic routines and serious discussions in addition to the songs themselves. About half of the songs she performs in concerts are not available on any of her albums. 

A gifted and prolific writer,  WHEELER'S songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Dan Seals, Peter Paul and Mary, Kenny Loggins, Garth Brooks, Suzy Boggus, Melanie, Bette Midler, Maura O'Connell, Sylvia, Kathy Mattea, and Holly Near.

WHEELER was raised in Timonium, Maryland, and began playing the guitar and ukulele as a child. She first performed professionally at a local restaurant, but soon graduated to clubs in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., areas. In 1976, she moved to Rhode Island, where she became a protégé of country-folk singer/songwriter Jonathan Edwards, for whom she initially served as bass player. Her first recording, a four-song EP called Newport Songs, was released in 1983. Edwards produced her first full-length album, "Cheryl Wheeler," released in 1986; one of the songs on the album, "Addicted," was covered by Dan Seals and became a number one country hit in September 1988. Wheeler released her second album, Half a Book, in 1988), and Circles & Arrows in 1990; Suzy Bogguss' cover of "Aces" from that album was a Top Ten country hit in 1992. Other albums are Driving Home (1993), Mrs. Pinocci's Guitar (1995) and Sylvia Hotel (1999).
