Still working on that hot first release.



Kurt Lee Wheeler has become known for playing music that connects with his audiences. From authentic original music that tells a story to covers from Cash, Buffet, The Beatles, to Haggard and Tom Petty to Isbell. Kurt has now partnered with WWW.thervloft.com Donley's Music @Donleysmusic.com and Curt Mangan Fusion Strings @curtmangan.com to help in bringing you his best performances night after night.

Kurt had been hibernating from song writing and performing since 1994.. But in 2017 things changed....since then Kurt has performed over 400 shows!! Currently, he is churning out new songs that provide a soundtrack to life’s events. The songs posted here present both new creations and a ‘retrospective' of Kurt's journey through music... from today's story telling/alt country vibe back to rocking years with hints of early alternative rock. Most of the songs are recorded in a very 'organic' way...no overdubs; only simple guitar and vocals.  about his songwriting and recording, Kurt says 'I would rather folks hear the songs in process. It's more like life...unedited and sometimes messy.' 

Kurt was brought up in the foothills of North Georgia where he was surrounded by the music of his mom and dad and extended family. Gospel, classic country, blue.grass, and rock  were equally blended to shape Kurt's taste in music. He taught himself how to play guitar at 14 and began to play at church. Soon after he formed a rock band  and played throughout high school. Afterwards he joined the Air Force and continued playing. He recorded a CD in 1992 which is on Reverb Nation along with several demos from that same era. Recently, Kurt has released several of his new songs and is out playing shows. He is the founder of the band The Lathemtown Poets Society.

What others are saying ...

Kurt’s songwriting is honest and painful and uplifting.  I’ve seen him captivate the room performing for Original Series @ Rock ‘N’ Taco in Buckhead, GA.  His Georgia roots are undeniably a part of Kurt’s Americana sound.  You can see Kurt perform at several venues supporting local artistry.  https://www.reverbnation.com/kurtwheeler

'I love the singer-songwriter storytelling style .... I always appreciate what it takes for a musician to put themselves out there like that. I will be listening to more of kurt lee wheeler for sure!' Review

'The lyrics are SO good! I love songs like this, and he has the perfect voice to deliver some great lyrics. The music is amazing as well. I would definitely listen to more from this artist. When a song can make you teary-eyed, that is the sign of a really good song.' Review

...Kurt Wheeler is an amazing person and artist.  A caring teacher by day,  a gifted musician by night (and weekend), and a giving friend at all times, Kurt shares his time, knowledge and heart for the benefit of others.  A rare soul... !'
