Reeve Carney
Reeve Carney
REEVE CARNEY was most recently seen as ‘Riff Raff’ in the upcoming remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show on FOX. Before Rocky Horror, Reeve starred in Showtime’s series Penny Dreadful as Dorian Gray. He originated the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the smash Broadway production Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark. Handpicked by director Julie Taymor, with the chance to perform music by U2’s Bono and The Edge, Reeve found himself with a mentorship any young singer would cut a deal with the devil to get. “Reeve was everything we could have hoped for: an amazing voice and a truly charismatic presence,” says Bono. Reeve also fronted the rock band Carney, whose debut album Mr. Green Vol. 1 came out on DAS Label/Interscope. His debut solo album was released in October of 2016.
Matt Wheeler
A troubadour, a poet with a guitar, a stage banter-conversationalist - all terms that describe Matt Wheeler's music & performance style well. Matt’s songwriting paints pictures with words, often drawing inspiration from classic works of literature or simply spinning new original stories in song. Lyrics & dynamics play a key role, as each song really means something, and each one is delivered with an honesty that is compelling.

When playing solo, Matt draws audiences in with engaging stories and interaction, while shining the spotlight on the lyrical strength of his songs. When joined by his band Vintage Heart, the poignant lyrics meet expressive strings and driving percussion to make orchestral folk songs that rewards repeated listens. The result is a pleasing sound that recalls wordsmiths like Denison Witmer, Iron & Wine, and James Taylor.

“Warm sound & heartfelt lyrics. If you are a fan of Josh Ritter give a listen to Matt!”
- Helen Leicht, WXPN Philadelphia

"Matt really has a way with words. He puts poetry to music really rather than simply writing songs. Very beautiful writing."
