The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival.

 
"Americana, made by hand."  -- NPR Music


"Wagler has a powerful, earthy, ragged voice with soulful overtones that get right into the heart of his songs that are steeped in Appalachia...You can't help but be moved by the undiluted passion of 'Story About Love', or lifted up by the gospel fervour of 'The Race' or the plaintive 'So Long'...Passionate music like this cannot be ignored...it demands to be embraced." -- Maverick Magazine
