"Everybody claims they're trying to do something different but we are doing something different."
Sean Wheeler (The Wheeler Boys)
Citing musical influences from Southern rock legends The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd, underground rap legends UGK, Three Six Mafia and Master P, The Wheeler Boys capture an innovative sound on their debut EP My Brother's Keeper. The Atlanta duo comprised of brothers Sean and Garrett, fuse musical genres to create a unique
hybrid of Southern hip-hop, bluegrass, and country.
Both Sean and Garrett were passionate about music at a young age, Sean played drums in school and Garrett was groomed in the choir and wrote poetry. In 2005 they recorded an independent album Support Your Local Insurgency. The buzz around Support Your Local Insurgency led to a collaboration with Dungeon Family rapper Witch Doctor on track “The Barrel.” It ultimately gained them national exposure, when Witchdoctor released the song on his 2007 album The Diary of an American Witchdoctor, under Adult Swim’s William’s Street Records.
The Wheeler Boys signed with country legend Zac Brown in 2011 becoming the label's first hip-hop artist. Since 2011, the group has toured with Brown through his Southern Ground Music and Food Festival, this opportunity gained The Wheeler Boys a cult following throughout the US. In 2014, The Wheeler Boys are gearing up for a new project release with touring dates throughout the college market.
