Wheat is an indie rock group formed by singer/songwriter Scott Levesque, drummer Brendan Harney, guitarist Ricky Brennan, and bass player Kenny Madaras in Taunton, Massachusetts in 1996.
Their debut album Medeiros, released in 1998 on Sugar Free records, was recorded by Dave Auchenbach and mixed by Red Red Meat's Brian Deck. Madaras had left the group (and was not permanantly replaced) by the release of their second Sugar Free album, 1999's Hope And Adams which was co-produced by Dave Fridmann and contained their most well-known song, "Don't I Hold You".
The group left Sugar Free for Nude Records in 2000, but the label went out of business due to lack of funding, and no album was released. Some of the songs recorded for the unreleased Nude album would survive as "Naked" versions on the "Too Much Time" compilation. Despite this setback the band continued writing and was signed to Columbia Records and released Per Second, Per Second, Per Second, Every Second in 2003. The album track "Some Days" featured on the soundtrack to the romantic comedy Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!.<...
