Hello Wheels formed in 2010 as the collaboration of four songwriters: Matt Bradshaw (Keys, Trumpet, Harp) John Shaw (Upright Bass) Nick Garza (Banjo) and Peter Shults (Guitar). The early years produced an EP (“Baby John the Fox”) and a vinyl single (“Friends Do Things Together”) in the form of a (somewhat) string band passionately hollering Americana soaked in harmony and foot stomped rhythm.
In 2013 Shaw was replaced by Gary Calhoun James and Josh Halpern was brought in on drums. The result was a new kind of gravitas for the Hello Wheels sound and in 2014 inspired the recording of their first LP “O Hell”.
“O Hell” Is set to release in late 2014 with a national tour to follow.
