The Lighthouse And The Whaler
The Lighthouse And The Whaler
The Lighthouse and the Whaler plays indie-folk-pop and does not believe that genre labels tell you anything you need to know about a band. It has nevertheless caught the attention of MTV, Fuse, FILTER, Spinner, Under the Radar and other media outlets that cater to indie-folk-pop music fans.

The band has performed at venues like Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame, SXSW, House of Blues and Mercury Lounge, though its favorite show to date took place in the attic of an old bookstore. The Lighthouse and the Whaler has shared stages with Sufjan Stevens, The Temper Trap, GIVERS and The Dodos, and shared blankets while sleeping in its donated mini-van, nicknamed Serena.

John Richards of KEXP called The Lighthouse and the Whaler his new favorite band. He may be the smartest man on the planet.

"Thinking love is worth the fall/The damage healed, & truth is all that remains." - From "Avalanche"

Honest, thought-provoking lyrics & simple but poignant melodies characterize Matt Wheeler's songwriting. With live shows that feature a heartfelt delivery of songs mixed together with a dose of light-hearted humor, Matt's music is easy to like.

Based in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart are emerging with a brand of acoustic folk-rock that reflects faith, love, and what it means to be human. Drawing influences from the folk/singer-songwriter tradition such as James Taylor and Iron & Wine, Matt's musical poetry can range from lilting and sweet to haunting and driving.
