Morgan Wade has signed with Arista Nashville. Wade’s debut single, “Wilder Days,” will be released this fall.

Wade released her debut album Reckless in early 2021 to critical acclaim. The 26-year-old kept her songs and her voice hidden in her younger years, taking to the stage naturally at age 19, and then choosing sobriety soon after in her early twenties. Working alongside Paul Ebersold and Sadler Vaden, the trio shaped songs Wade has written over the years and developed new tracks to create her debut.

“There always a bit of reserve when going to a major label from an independent one – there’s worry that your creativity will be stripped away. I don’t feel that at all with Sony,” says Wade. “If anything, I’m more inspired than ever. Sony and Arista see my vision and want to work hard with me to share that vision. I feel at home.”

Following opening stints with Ashley McBryde and American Aquarium, Wade will join Lucero for the band’s fall tour and will appear at major festivals including Rock the South, Pilgrimage, and more.

Wade is represented by Hillpeople Artist Management and WME. She signed with UMPG Nashville earlier this year.
