Wade Skinner is a singer/songwriter from Longview, TX. Although his first single “Highway Going Down” fits primarily in the country music genre, Wade’s musical influences and live performances include a plethora of styles. Wade is primarily a vocalist performer, so this means that live shows include music that showcase his vocal performance. Along with his originals, songs that often make it into his set lists are from artists as diverse as Alice ‘n Chains, Merle Haggard, Tyler Childers, Cody Jinks, and Bill Monroe. Wade has performed on stages all over Texas as a solo act and with a full band and for all kinds of audiences. Wade has been featured on the Songbirds and Troubadours Show with Boston Chris (2018) and has been interviewed by EGuide Magazine's Johnny Griffith (2019). In the Fall of 2019, Wade was featured in Longview's Downtown Live Concert Series. Wade draws his inspiration for writing songs from his love for poetry, his life experiences, and his wife and children. And he pours every ounce of his soul into each performance, regardless of the size of the audience. Wade's first full album Through the Fire will be released to all digital platforms on September 3, 2020. His single "Red Summer" on that album will be released to radio on September 10.
