Alpharetta Music Match Featuring Kurt Lee Wheeler
May 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Kurt Lee Wheeler is a Canton, Georgia-based singer/songwriter that crafts raw, vulnerable portrayals of life in the American Southeast. His musical expressions range from country, to bluegrass, to rock. You can catch Kurt playing solo and with his band The Lathemtown Poets Society. Born and raised in Lathemtown, Georgia the son of a cattleman and homemaker, Wheeler taught himself to play guitar and soon began recording his own songs reel to reel, then to cassettes, then to four track-tape whenever he could catch a break from helping with the cattle and playing sports. In the mid 80s, he enlisted in the Air Force and along with his fellow airmen formed Hint of Insurgence, a band influenced by the burgeoning sounds of college radio and the classic rock he cut his teeth on growing up.
