Wiley Chandler is a true artist with a passion for music, and more importantly it’s meaning. His songs are sincere and engaging coming from a deep place; and his unique style on guitar is as much a part of his sound as his emotive voice. Organic creativity is something Chandler relies on while writing and recording, saying it’s found when “The music feels like the words, the words feels like the melody, the melody feels like it belongs with the music, and it all comes together to move you.” That thought certainly translates in his new EP, We Both Know The Truth Is.
His ability to affect audiences can be found throughout his work. From the heartfelt & poignant ‘Living In A Lullaby’, to the thoughtful & timeless ‘Take Away’, the intimate ‘We Never Do’, and the illuminated up-tempo ‘Run With The Night’, this strong collection of new material stays close to the organic place it came from. When Chandler talks about writing he says, “I’m drawing inspiration from my life, from history, from movies, from books… from everything I see and hear.” and on creating a sound that is all his own, “I think it’s my desire for greatness. I know I’m not there yet, and I hope I never think I am. But, I’ll always be trying.”
Sharing the stage with some of music’s biggest stars, Wiley Chandler has established a notable resume, gaining fans across genres as the opening act for the likes of James Taylor, Kings of Leon, Keith Urban, Vince Gill, The Fray, Ryan Adams, and The Avett Brothers among others.
