“Stephen Wheel, who has recently had a song accepted for soundtrack of the BBC Series 'Being Human,' is a musician who is far from blowing his own trumpet but is nonetheless inseparable from his beautiful but haunting music. "I go to bed thinking about it and I wake up thinking about it", he said recently, "I don't know when it will stop." …this show will be the highlight of the whole month of January.”

“This song [Snow Angels] is incredibly awesome. Dramatic, beautiful and strangely fragile sounding.”
- Journal of Plastik
“…completely bonkers album…if ever a collection of songs refuses to be neatly pigeon holed then this is it.…each repeated listen will be rewarded because there is just so much going on in this lavish album.“
- Chris Philips, BRfm
“Snow Angels is a terrific first effort by Stephen Wheel…the album manages to capture a unique and outstanding sound. It is an album that only gets better with each listen. It may take a while to grow on some, but it is well worth the try.” - James Vincent Rouse, The Music Cycle
