Cheryl Wheeler

Known for her comic as well emotionally intense songs, folk singer/songwriter Cheryl 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 on North Star Records 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. North Star licensed her second album, Half a Book (1988), to the short-lived Cypress imprint of A&M Records. She then signed to the Nashville division of Capitol Records and released Circles & Arrows in 1990; Suzy Bogguss' cover of "Aces" from that album was a Top Ten country hit in 1992. (Subsequently, her songs were covered by Bette Midler, Juice Newton, Maura O'Connell, Linda Thompson, and others.) In 1993, Wheeler moved to the Philo imprint of the independent Rounder label for her fourth album, Driving Home (Rounder reissued Circles & Arrows in 1994). She followed it with Mrs. Pinocci's Guitar (1995) and Sylvia Hotel (1999). ~ William Ruhlmann & Jason Ankeny, Rovi

How do we get more of Cheryl's albums on Pandora? I would love to have more of her beautiful voice and poetry available.
Going to see Cheryl tonight at Red Clay theater in Duluth Ga, Haven't seen her since '79 in RI..
please try Cheryl Wheeler's Different Stripe
It is rare to find an artist whose music, always, always touches me. I smile, laugh and cry--think of things I haven't thought of in an while, transporting me to another place. Her music is art.
If I recall correctly, her song, Arrow, on her Circles and Arrows album, won some Listener's Choice award as the Best Folk Song of the Decade (or something like that). Listen to it and you will see why.
Cheryl Wheeler is wonderful, one of those special people who truly exemplify the folk spirit.
Saw Cheryl at the Avalon Theatre in Eston, MD. Unknowingly sat at a table next to her father. She sang him 75 Septambers on - fantastic. He has since passed on to another dimension. Hoping to see Susan Werner at the Avalon this June - another amazing artist.
Just went to a house concert in Colorado, truly amazing artist. Thank you!

Potato live isn't on Sylvia Hotel.....
Is she aware of Stephen Lynch? In one of her songs called 'Please Do Something Stupid' she mentions she won't marry a man named Steve.

Cheryl Wheeler is the best songwriter in this country since Bob Dylan. Unlike many artists writing today, she creates songs about all kinds of things, not just about love and lost love, though her songs about such things are just amazing and moving, but also about such things as coming home, fall in New England, one's heritage and all kinds of important things.
I had the pleasure of seeing her in person Saturday night at Johnathons in Ogunquit Maine, a great show!
Cheryl Wheeler live is a real treat..... she's very, very funny!

I am so thrilled to be going to Cheryl's show at the Iron Horse in NoHo this Saturday! It's my first time seeing her live, what a great birthday present!!! I can listen to her songs forever....

We used to see Cheryl at the Windswept Farm Pub in Charlestown, RI. in the 70"s
There would be 20 people listening. What the world missed.... we remember.

Defying Gravity is a great album. I love Cheryl Wheeler!
Am excited to go to my first Cheryl Wheeler show this Friday. Love her voice and humor, can't wait to see her live!
I've adored Cheryl Wheeler since the mid-80's, but I've never been able to find anything other than "Circles and Arrows;" I almost cried the other night when I recognized her voice. Thanks Pandora!
Fell in love with Cheryl Wheeler when I purchased the CD Sylvia Hotel. Love her humor, great emotional lyrics, lovely pitch and range that matches mine!

I agree w/ Lynn - need more than 3 albums to choose from. OTOH, Sylvia Hotel is one of the better ones. Cheryl is great at "painting a picture" with her lyrics - and she is !absolutely! hysterical in concert - sometimes more story than song, but worth the price of admission anyway.

Wow. New to me. Amazing. Thanks, Pandora!
One of my absolute favorite artists. No matter what kind of Pandora station I set up, Cheryl appears.:)
Wow, how have I never heard any of her songs before? She popped up on my They Might Be Giants station and I was quite pleased. Lets see more of this, yes? Good stuff.
emhoster
Ditto--Pando r a , please update your bio and your discography. She is an amazing artist.
yesmeetoo
Cheryl is truly amazing!!! I've been a fan for more than 20 years. Last time i saw her was at Passim in Cambridge. I laughed so hard I thought my head was gonna pop!!! Disappointed to see that Pandora only has three of her discs available for listening!!!
Uncommonly good lyricist with a wonderfully expressive voice.
Cheryl...I was responsible for presenting you many times in the late 80's and early 90's in New England but we never met. Don't recall why. During one performance I had you playing with David Wilcox (sorry about that) and the power went out. You were the best. You just kept singing and we all had a blast. Thank you for the laughter and who else can sing a whole song about a potato? Only you. Or GUNS... I wish we could drink a case together sometime...
There are no similar artists. The girl is one of a kind. A treasure. Have seen her live and hung on her every funny word and swooned over her voice and melodies.
I love her voice! OMG, she kinda reminds me of Kathy Mathea...... . S y l v i a Rocks~
Cheryl gives an amazing live show--great music, beautiful voice, and she's so funny you think you're at a comedy club. I've seen her at the Birchmere many times over two decades and she never disappoints!

I have been to two of her concerts at the Birchmere. It is a wonderfully entertaining evening. I love her music and her lyrics are incredible. She's warm and funny and you should go if you have a chance!
I remember the first time I saw her I sent into labor. I had my son several hours later after getting rushed back home from her concert. Phew...that was 22 year ago. I'll never forget it. I still love her. k
cool calming sound....
Just saw her in Michigan at Wheatland Music Festival and she was fabulous! Hope you get to see her at some point.
unfortunatel y no... I went to her website and she is touring a lot but nowhere in Ohio. I may go see her in Alexandria VA in October
I am wondering if this artist is due to come to Columbus Ohio anytime in the near future?
