Wade’s music has attracted listeners hungry for songs where expectations are heightened rather than lowered, making “It’s Just Blood,”
“Needles In The Waves,” “Cuddling With Doom,” and the title track popular staples of terrestrial and internet radio stations alike.
At iacmusic.com, five of her songs have entered the Top 10, with three reaching #1. Recently, an acoustic track not on the album, “Broken Soldier,”
had the distinction of not only enjoying seven weeks at #1 on IAC’s Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana chart, but was also lodged for a good while at #39
on Neil Young’s Living With War Today page at neilyoung.com. Other recognitions include Los Angeles Music Awards’ Adult Alternative Female
Singer-Songwriter of the Year for her song, “It’s Just Blood.” As the second song on The Old Ways, “It’s Just Blood” also has been featured in the
Top 500 entries of Billboard’s World Songwriting Contest. Print media, including Maverick-U.K (with their upcoming review in their July 2011 issue),
RootsTime out of Belgium, laexaminer.com and bluerailroad.com are taking notice of and responding quite favorably to The Old Ways.
