In the 37 years of his life, Jake Wheat has used his creativity to launch several projects ranging from Internet radio, theatrical productions, and is most known for his hosting of “The Waverly Hills Sanatorium Audio Experience,” which is available on iTunes, and the face behind the lovably sinister voice of “The Caretaker” which appears on that soundtrack. He has started a non-profit cancer research charity, released two CD’s that raise money to fight Ewing’s Sarcoma, and Produced the phenomenal success “Evil Dead: The Musical.”
In 2002, Wheat was responsible for launching “UndergroundLou.com” an Internet based radio station which primarily played music from hardcore bands in Louisville, Kentucky. This is where Wheat gained a loyal audience, and was able to connect with people though this “newfangled form of media.” Wheat then discovered podcasting, and began interviewing artists on the “StreetBlast Artist Interview Podcast,” and then found solace in his work – which engulfed him into a “new media” birthing role in the country music industry.
Jake Wheat recently published his first novel “The Spaghetti Seduction & Other Delicious Super Gay Erotic Stories.” This release is the first in a collection of gay themed novels Wheat has written, and contains fictional and auto-biographical elements about his life in between the pages. Wheat also recently written the story for a dark horror graphic novel titled “The Bitterman,” which will be released in October 2011. Mark your calendars!
“I have done theatre, I have released CD’s, and I have done my share of charity. The new projects are mine, and is 100% me. When I am writing I feel like I am in full control and one with these characters. I have grown to love them, and I am not ashamed to put myself out there on such a vulnerable level.” Wheat said.
In his spare time, Jake has been busy re-designing his creative life and doing what he enjoys – spending time with his husband of eight years, his two cats, and enjoying the creative freedom on his blog.
Wheat has been featured in Instinct Magazine, Velocity, LEO, The Courier Journal, and on various local and syndicated news broadcasts. For more information or to contact Jake Wheat, please click here.
