Cheryl Wheeler – Brilliant New England Based Singer

20110429-102045.jpg

Cheryl Wheeler is an American singer songwriter based in New England. Her unassuming demeanour belies a singer with the voice of an angel and a songwriter that can write pithy comic songs, heartbreakingly beautiful ballads or simple songs about the area she comes from.

The style of her music is folk with a slight tinge of country thrown into some songs.

Her songs have been covered by several well known singers such as Kenny Loggins, Garth Brooks, Bette Midler, Suzy Bogguss and Kathy Mattea to name but a few.

Her Greatest Hits album Different Stripe is a magnificent collection of songs. I love the simplicity of Sylvia Hotel and When Fall Comes to New England. Other stand outs are Aces, Arrow and Moonlight and Roses.
