Growing up in a small town just north of Dayton, OH, Wheatley made his first solo appearance in spring of 2014. After a summer of playing open mics followed by the release of his debut album that September he began playing local area shows and appearing on local radio early on in his young career. Soon after, Wheatley Matthews set off on his first national tour in March 2015.
Playing in cities throughout the Midwest stretching out to the west coast and back to Dayton, Wheatley wasted no time in returning back to the studio. After a month out on the road he began the finishing touches on his second studio album. Shortly after completing his first year as a solo performer his second album, "Sayonara", released in June 2015. Now with his third studio album on the horizon and continuing his pursuit as a touring artist, Wheatley Matthews hopes to share his original folk/blues songwriting with anyone he can reach, whether it be with his driving guitar, unique voice or heartening lyrics.
