The Wheeler Brothers evolving from hip-hop enthusiasts to acclaimed rap duo is an achievement. Already recognized for their independent endeavors, they have re-released their EP, My Brother’s Keeper, now backed by Zac Brown’s imprint Southern Ground Artists, Inc.Revamping My Brother’s Keeper, they collaborated with Atlanta-based blues favorite Joe McGuinness, weaving two different sounds into a new sub-genre.
“Being on Southern Ground has opened up a whole new level of musicianship and we’re embracing it,” G explains their ever-growing creativity.
The release of My Brother’s Keeper was pivotal in showcasing the Wheelers’ intriguing story-telling skills. “Our music sounds better but still has the same appeal of hungry up-and-comers,” Garrett says proudly. In 2011 The Wheeler Boys were deemed Best Hip Hop Group in Atlanta by local publication Creative Loafing. This marked the 3rd consecutive year for the group to win this honor, tying only Outkast for 3 successive wins for the same recognition. “Everybody claims they’re trying to do something different,” Sean says, “but we are doing something different.” “Our whole intention is to make heartfelt music that lasts,” Garrett adds, “music that people from all backgrounds can feel.”
Levi Lowrey aims to make his mark by delivering honest and direct songwriting to audiences willing to connect with the message.While performing, Levi prefers more intimate venues but relishes opportunities to captivate susceptive larger audiences with his candid storytelling. The moments and messages in Levi’s songwriting are specific. They target individuals through empathy or shared experience. Levi’s communication goal is simple – “if I can make people feel what I’ve felt, then I’ve done my job.”
