Morgan Wade

Saturday, February 8, 2020, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


With a voice thats unmistakably Appalachian and skin covered in tattoos, Morgan Wade is one of the singer/songwriters that is part of a musical forefront that, in the past few years has taken over Nashville, Texas and other places alike. Honing a sound too gritty to be country, and carrying too much of a twang to be rock, I suppose you could say, Morgan Wade, falls somewhere in the Alt country side of things. Born and raised in the small town of Floyd, VA in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, the town has a modest population of 442 people, with the main source of the towns popularity being FloydFest, the yearly music festival right off the Blue Ridge Parkway that brings in just over 14,000 people each year to the town, which Morgan and her band played last year and will be playing again this year. Although she plays guitar and sings now, her first instrument surprisingly was the classical violin. She attended lessons for what she thought was going to be fiddle but, turned out to be a classical violin class at the age of 8 and played recitals for several years before making it known to her teacher and her mom that the violin was not for her and she wanted a guitar. Morgan remembers her teacher saying to her mom that if she cant stick with violin then it would be a waste to buy her a guitar, so her mom listened to the teacher and didnt buy her a guitar but, Morgans grandmother did. After that, she taught herself a few chords and would sing and write but not show anybody, due to the fact she thought she couldnt sing. Throughout her teenage years, she would play and sing in her bedroom while nobody was home. It wasnt until she met her now boyfriend and band member, Joe Link that anybody ever said to her I bet you can sing cant you?, and shes been singing, that is in front of people ever since.
