Proof that transatlantic flights can be used for more than watching rubbish films and sleeping, the new album from US songwriter John Wheeler was written almost exclusively on just such a flight in 2015. Pulling together scribbled notes, ideas and thoughts from various sources, Wheeler stitched together almost an entire album’s worth of lyrics in the space of a few hours hovering above the sea.
The result is an excellent second album, typified by the single above – ‘Too Much Poop to Flush’. It will appeal to two major groups – those who like their music to come with a sense of humour, and those who enjoy well written, soulful country-folk.
If that sounds like your cup of tea, this album is well worth a listen, and you can also catch Wheeler on the road in the UK right now – http://www.johnwheelermusic.com/Tour_Dates.html
