Soaring from Menominee Indian Reservation roots, Wade knows how to both soothe and rock. With versatility, he maintains tradition while forging ahead in an ever expanding world of music. Vocals, guitar, songwriting, native flute & drumming, all flow from deep within a rich blood memory, echoing his words, "Music is a very powerful gift to be returned and shared in a good way.”
As a well-established performer shows include; The Honor The Earth Tour, Woodstock ’94, The Reebok Human Rights Awards (2002 Winter Olympics), Ed McMahon’s Next Big Star, Chicago’s World Music Festival, and Germany’s Tollwood Festival. Wade jammed stages with many artists including Jackson Browne and The Indigo Girls.
