Snow Angels is Steve's debut album. All tracks written, performed, recorded and produced by Steve. Featuring Gareth Dylan Smith on drums and lots of other brilliant musicians. Snow Angels is an album of rock songs, with orchestral colours, made in Wales.

Radio airplay has included Tom Robinson on his BBC 6 Music show, by Bethan Elfyn on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Wales and Nation FM. The track Lulu Mae featured on BBC Three TV show Being Human.

“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.”
- Marc Thomas

'I think this guy's got a lot of talent!"
- Alan Thompson, BBC Radio Wales Evening Show

" works. Brilliantly. Definitely worth a listen, but make sure you’re in a safe place!” 

- Miniature Music Press

“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

Track Name: Dead Rock Stars and One Night Stands
Dead Rock Stars and One Night Stands

I've had enough of grey days and had to get away so I took a trip
From Portlands Bay to Santa Fe
While tripping down the west coast I met up with some like-minded fools
And we spent the night on gin and wine so

Wake me in the morning, when I'll be the last one to leave
We'll share a final cigarette, though you won't remember my name
It's all the same

Bodega Bay is flying by but will the birds attack, don't know about that
As we're driving down to San Fran state
Dead Rock Stars and One Night Stands across the USA maybe today
Will finally find a little peace of mind and

I'm staring at a photograph of someone that I used to know
I'm hoping that she's happy now, not knowing why I had to go
It's all the same

Elliott is playing at the basement on the hill and staying in
And we won't be seeing him again
And Shannon did you know you'd blow you're life out with that hit
I miss you so, and the music that I'll never know.

So spare a thought for Jimi strumming his six strings up above
For Lennon and for Luther King who tried to spread some peace and some love
Wake me in the morning, when I'll be the last one to leave
We'll share a final cigarette, though you won't remember my name
It's all the same
