This was the highly acclaimed second release from San Francisco based Singer/Songwriter, Amy Meyers. The Wheel is very much like a show, completed only after the last note of the last song, Opus 105, an original solo classical piano piece. Leading up to that finale, The Wheel spins the listener through a variety of different styles and genres including Folk Ballads, Acoustic Rock, Piano Ballads, Musical Theatre, and Instumental Piano. The production is rich with sounds, including horns, woodwinds, and strings. A must for fans of Kate Bush, Patti Smith, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos and musical theatre. See also her later releases, Open Road (1998) and Crossing (2000), and Strange & Beautiful (2004).
