Bucks Music Group signs Rob Wheeler in exclusive worldwide deal

Wheeler was named Writer of the Year at the 2021 ARC Radio Awards

London, 6th April 2022 Bucks Music Group has signed Rob Wheeler to an exclusive worldwide songwriting agreement.

Having received critical acclaim for his 2018 debut Little Ghost Full Of Songs, Wheeler followed up with 2021’s Ten Embers, which was recorded with virtuoso guitarist Robbie McIntosh (John Mayer/Paul McCartney), award-winning drummer Fred Eltringham (Sheryl Crow/Willie Nelson), and bassist David Troke (Beverley Knight/Josh Groban), and mastered by Pete Maher (U2/The 1975).

The album saw Wheeler take home Writer of the Year at the 2021 ARC Radio Awards.

Wheeler closed out 2021 with the EP MidWinter Songs, which hit No.1 and No. 5 on the UK and US singer-songwriter charts respectively.

In January 2022, inspired by the recent passing of his best friend, Wheeler undertook an emotional restoration project to remaster and expand his studio albums into The Archive Collection – an anthology featuring raw demos, alternative/acoustic mixes, plus a complete remix and remaster of A Little Ghost Full Of Songs.

Wheeler will be writing and recording his third album in Nashville this year, and releasing a Deluxe Archive version of his debut album on May 20 with single God Complex landing on April 22.

Bucks Music Group’s Head of Sync Jonathan Tester said: “Rather than following fashion or trying to appease a scene, Rob’s approach to songwriting is to grab a guitar and pour his heart out. His drive and commitment to his craft is incredible, and working with such acclaimed musicians on Ten Embers has allowed his songs to be performed and released with the prestige they deserve. Rob is establishing himself as a new voice in the alt-country and Americana scene, and I cannot wait to hear the results of his trip to Nashville.”

Rob Wheeler said: “I am overjoyed to be signing an exclusive deal with Bucks Music Group. The team has the experience and industry knowledge to help guide and nurture my career – but, even more importantly, the company is built on foundations of creativity and support; where music is the heart and soul of everything.”
