Luke Wade describes himself as a pop singer/songwriter with strong Americana influences. Wade compares his sound to soulful crooners and songwriters like Ray LaMontagne, James Bay, Adele (to a certain extent) and Sam Smith, but a little more distinctly American. While Wade is known as a Texas-based musician, he gained national attention on Season 7 of NBC’s reality singing show, “The Voice.” Wade has headlined more than a thousand live shows and toured and performed with Train,Toad the Wet Sprocket, Rusted Root, Kris Allen, Casey Abrams, Patti LaBelle, Andy Grammer, MKTO, Train, Daughtry, Blue October, Green River Ordinance, Ingrid Michelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, OAR and David Cook. As the official 2015-16 Komen Artist, he released “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” with Mia Z to benefit Susan G. Komen and the fight against breast cancer.  Wade has also performed the halftime show of the Denver Broncos game at Mile High Stadium, AT&T Stadium during the Dallas Cowboy game and performed the National Anthem at Texas Motor Speedway, nationally televised on NBC. He has also been recognized by the City of Fort Worth for his charitable work with Cook Children’s Medical Center. Wade released his first album, “Tomorrow’s Ghosts,” in 2010 and his second album, “The River,” in April 2014. Wade’s third, full-length studio album, “Only Ghosts,” released in January 2017.
