John Wheeler plays Debussy and Satie


Released in 2020. An intimate recording of French impressionist nighttime drinking music composed by Claude Debussy and Erik Satie and played solo by John on an upright piano. As these pieces are the harmonic precursors to US Western Swing and Jazz, they’re played with a bit of swing and swagger not usually found in “classical” recordings.

Recommended drink: Petit Chablis

Un-American Gothic


Released in 2013. Acoustic guitar based folk-rock observation songs written during the 2011 and 2012 Hayseed Dixie tours that didn’t quite fit the band. As John was riding a motorcycle everywhere during these tours, most of these songs were first scribbled down in gas station parking lots.
