   Hailing originally from St. Charles, Missouri, Greenwheel is ready to hit it big. With their debut single 'Shelter' rocking the Spiderman soundtrack, and major label debut, Soma Holiday, finally in stores, the sky is definitely the limit for these rockers. Ryan was nice enough to give me a call while on his way to a gig in Harrisburgh, PA and nice enough to call back after we got disconnected. We talked about the origin of the band, becoming famous, and even whoring themselves across the country.

I want to thank Ryan and everyone at the Island Def Jam for hooking this up. Hopefully the guys in Greenwheel can make their way to Philly soon, as Philly loves the Rock 'n' Roll music. Keep an eye on Greenwheel, we didn't name them as an artist to watch for nothin. Check out to see if Greenwheel is playing in your area!
