Luke Wade is a graduate of Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX where his first band Hurt Street would form and call home for the six years they toured the Texas college circuit. He was born and raised in nearby Dublin where he worked at the historic Dr. Pepper plant though his college years. His Father, an Artist, and Mother, a dance instructor, both still live and work in the small town. For eleven years starting at the age of three, Luke was a student of his mother’s dance studio, and gives this experience credit for always feeling comfortable performing his music in front of crowds. He credits his father's influence as a painter for showing him the importance of patience, honesty, and integrity in making any kind of art. In 2009 Luke Wade relocated to Fort Worth where he worked as a bartender at Scat Jazz Loung. Luke's debut album, "Tomorrow's Ghosts," was released in June of 2010 to regional praise and moderate commercial success. It wasn’t until September of 2011 that Luke began touring nationally, gaining a broader base of fans and attention of the music industry. Since then, Luke has played the Mississippi River Music Festival in St. Louis, the PGA tour championship in Kiawah Island, SC, and he and his band No Civilians are currently recording a follow up Album with a plan for a summer 2013 release.
