Born and raised in outback Queensland, Wade was raised on both a cowboy lifestyle and country music. He would often sing along to songs while travelling around the professional rodeo circuit and praised for having a good voice but didn’t pursue music until later in his life. In 2017, He left his hometown of Winton to pursue a career opportunity in refrigeration in Mount Isa. He bought his first guitar from Facebook for $50 and spent his free time learning how to play. By the end of his time in Mount Isa, he was playing for people at rodeos and Facebook viewers. In 2021 he realised music might be more than a hobby after releasing a cover of a Tyler Childers song Oneida online which gained attention and listeners asking for original songs. He invested his pay and recorded a country album, The Beginning, at Simon Johnson’s Hillbilly Hut Studio and began building a fanbase of national and international cowboys and cowgirls. In January 2023, Wade graduated from The Senior Academy of Country Music. He plays at gigs and rodeos in and around Western Queensland and played at Winton’s Way-Out West festival, before playing at the 2023 Savannah In The Round. With the demand online and listeners eagerly wanting more, Wade has a lot more music yet to be released. His passion for music and rodeo inspires his writing process and will continue to influence his continuation in both rodeo and the music industry. Influences: Dwight Yoakam, George Jones, Tom T Hall, Tyler Childers.
