Morgan Wade is a busy lady. She is about to embark on her “No Signs of Slowing Down” tour later this month, yet she has already released information about a second tour she will be doing later this year. We will cover that one – “Crossing State Lines (And Oceans!) – later, but this post will focus on the tour that begins with a February 21 date at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC.
Wade is clearly a bigger star than she knows. Here “No Signs of Slowing Down” tour has had numerous dates added and venue changes since the initial announcement. Those changes have all been to bigger venues, with Wade now playing Royale Boston in Boston, Massachusetts, The Sylvee in Madison, Wisconsin, and The Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona, part of the tour. Wade also has cities – like Nashville and Austin – where she plays two shows, and her winter/early spring tour concludes with an April 16 date at The National in Richmond, Virginia.
A full list of venues and dates can be found at the end of this post.
Wade is a country artist that took a more traditional path to fame. In an era of YouTube and Tik Tok stars, Wade recruited a band for her first album through Craigslist while still a college freshman. This is basically the modern equivalent of taking out an advertisement in a newspaper or sticking a flyer on a bulletin board. Puppets with My Heart was self-released in 2018, and Wade’s ability was such that it landed her a record deal with Thirty Tigers. It was the – and producer Paul Ebersold – that helped Wade release Reckless in 2021.
Wade has a country/folk sound likened to an edgier Sheryl Crow. She is a musician that straddles genres, so anyone interested in country, folk, or even indie music would do well to check her out ASAP.
