You may hear Morgan sing and think to yourself “I have heard her before.” Maybe flashbacks to Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, or Melissa Etheridge come to mind, though Wade has more twang to go along with that rasp. Morgan is the lead singer of Morgan Wade and The Stepbrothers as well as the sole-songwriter for the rock-group that is based out of Roanoke, Va. Wade originates from Floyd, VA, a town that provides much inspiration to her powerhouse lyrics, Joe Link the mandolin player also hails from Floyd. While the other band mates Ed McGee (bass), Bengy Wagner (drums), and Drew Sprinkle (lead guitar), reside in Roanoke, Va. They recently released their first single titled “Left Me Behind” which is a teaser for the upcoming record “Puppets With My Heart” that is due out in summer 2017. They are currently working on their 2017 tour, as they prepare to hit the road full time.
Born Catholic in a Mormon town, David Robert King has never been good at blending in. His often dark, occasionally humorous songs are unapologetically personal while grounded in the arid soil of his native Idaho. His songs reverberate with the sting of the high desert wind and the hidden fury of the Snake River. David has toured the world with rock, folk, and bluegrass groups, and extensively as a solo artist. He has shared the stage with Grammy winners and music legends including Josh Ritter, Loudon Wainwright III, Darrell Scott, Over the Rhine, and Don Henry. In 2010, his debut E.P. "Take Me Home" was in the top 40 on the Folk Music Charts. In 2011 he released the full-length album “Midnight in Gloryland” to fan and critical acclaim before disappearing into the coastal northeast. In the summer of 2015 David was lured from hiatus by an invitation to the stage of the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN. When he is not singing or writing songs, he can be found teaching at a high school in Decatur, GA.
