Ben Wade is an acoustic singer/songwriter and musician based out of Atlanta, Georgia. His raw and soulful vocals are reminiscent of the “old school” soul singers, but with a bit more of a contemporary feel. He burst onto the Atlanta music scene in the mid ‘90’s, playing around such impressive talents as Shawn Mullins, Matthew Kahler, Kristen Hall, Mark Reynolds, Jonathan Ripley, Jason Marcum, Tommy Thompson and Don Conoscenti. In 1995, he was named “Best Acoustic Artist” by Creative Loafing Magazine.
The Ben Wade Band was formed when solo artist Ben Wade met up with a couple of very talented musicians who complimented Ben’s vocal styling. At this particular time, the band is evolving with several different groups of musicians sharing the stage with him. Ben also enjoys playing with many musicians from around the world who often sit in for a set at his shows. The Ben Wade Band is performing throughout the southeast, bringing a fantastic freshness to the music scene. Ben is currently in the studio recording new material, with the debut CD due out soon.
Brand new duo The Ormewoods are Grammy winning producer/engineer/musician Don McCollister and Atlanta Intown Songwriter founder and independent radio favorite Claire Pearson. Longtime friends, Don and Claire did not start writing and performing together until Don moved down the street from Claire in Ormewood Park, Atlanta, GA....hence their name The Ormewoods. Their friendship quickly turned into a romance (which is still continuing).
Their music is described as "sexy folk pop country" and their first album "The Bedroom Sessions" is currently in production. The project is a result of songs Claire wrote detailing the first 90 days of their reconnection. They decided the best way to capture the intimate nature of the songs was to turn Claire's bedroom into a recording studio. Don set up his recording gear and the album was recorded over a series of "bedroom sessions". #heybabe can be heard here on ReverbNation.
They are passionate about supporting local causes with music, building and strengthening the Atlanta music community, and both continue to collaborate with other artists. Don plays bass and produces the Smokin' Novas and Claire writes and performs as #thedaffodils with longtime co-writer and former Nashville recording artist Heidi Higgins. While each has an active fan base individually, they are beginning to build one as a duo. Please follow on Twitter @TheOrmewoods and check their ReverbNation page frequently for show updates and news!
