JORDAN FOLEY & THE WHEELHOUSE

New Single "Loners" Now Available
on Spotify and All Streaming Services

LonersJordan Foley & The Wheelhouse
00:00 / 03:38

Loners is Jordan Foley & The Wheelhouse's first official single release and is now available on Spotify and all music streaming services.

 

Loners is fierce, it's aggressive, and makes you want to get up and move, go work out, or tap the steering wheel on a long drive.

 

The song dives into the realm of being alone - not lonely - and owning your independence. Jordan Foley wrote the song as an argument between a couple on the brink of ending their relationship. The first verse is the main narrator/lover, and the second verse represents the other lover in response.

 

But really, the overall arch of the song delves into not letting anything get in the way of who you are, what matters to you, and who you want to be in life.

About Jordan Foley & The Wheelhouse

After the release of his debut solo album Give to Get a Day in 2018, Jordan Foley soon realized his songs needed a boost. He could hear a full band while performing his songs. So, he set out to put a band together.

 

Founded in 2019, Jordan Foley & The Wheelhouse consists of Jordan Foley (vocals, guitar), Tyler Hood (lead guitar), Cristian Faustmann (bass), Mikey Guzman (keys), and Matt Wassum (drums). The name "The Wheelhouse" came about from his friends who saw Jordan play live and tell him, "You should sing this song because it's totally in your wheelhouse." Over time, what Jordan initially thought would be an acoustic folk outfit turned into an all-out Americana/southern rock band.

 

On the band's sound and live performance, Orlando Weekly's Bao Le-Huu writes they "are on a whole other plane. Hearing his vigorous, stirring voice on its own is a moving thing, but seeing it flanked and given full wings by a five-piece ensemble is a splendor. His supporting cast is stocked with quality players and singers. Together, they make for a country-rock outfit that’s lush, articulated and muscular."

 

Jordan Foley & The Wheelhouse has solidified itself as a strong force to be reckoned with in Florida's growing Americana scene. Their first batch of songs to be released in 2023 were produced by Thomas Wynn (Thomas Wynn & The Believers), who played a pivotal role in helping the band identify their sound. In 2022, they also signed with Gainesville-based record label Painted Lady Records.

Press

Jordan Foley & The Wheelhouse has been nominated in Orlando Weekly's annual Best of Orlando Reader's Poll, from 2019-2022. In 2022, they took second place for Best Folk Act.
 

They've been described by Creative Loafing Tampa's Ray Roa, "Jordan Foley’s voice is a vibe in itself, but it becomes a full-on force when coupled with his band, The Wheelhouse, which muscles up a sound that’s emerging as one of the freshest coming out of Orlando’s Americana scene.

When the band became official in 2019, they were dubbed Band of the Week by Orlando Weekly, an honor considering they hadn't played a show as the official lineup yet. Orlando Weekly's Bao Le-Huu writes, "the man’s got a band called Jordan Foley & The Wheelhouse, and they are on a whole other plane. Hearing his vigorous, stirring voice on its own is moving thing, but seeing it flanked and given full wing by a five-piece ensemble is a splendor. His supporting cast is stocked with quality players and singers. Together, they make for a country-rock outfit that’s lush, articulated and muscular."
