Single release
: Deeper in Debt by John Wheeler
Release date: 5 November 2012
Label: Cooking Vinyl 
Listen: Watch official Youtube video for 'Deeper In Debt'

Just in time for the US elections, November 5 sees the release of the new single, Deeper In Debt, from John Wheeler. Best known for the past decade as the creator and frontman of the successful Rockgrass act, Hayseed Dixie, this snappy little slice of righteous reality-rock indignation finds Wheeler stepping out into his own and venturing into lyrical and musical territory quite removed from the work of his previous band.

The single’s contemporary economic observations hint at Wheeler’s rich awareness of philosophy, politics and history – fiddles make an appearance in the song’s solo section but hick he ain’t. And more of this can be expected with a full album release due early next year. Eclectic and original, like Hayseed Dixie’s critically refreshing seventh album No Covers (for which Wheeler was chief songwriter), but with extra personality, intelligence, insight and, of course, all the charm and humor that flung Hayseed into such credible popularity., though this time with a bit harder bite.

The full album, Un-American Gothic, is set for a February 2013 release on the Cooking Vinyl label.
