Wade O. Brown
The deaths of Luther Vandross and Barry White have left a void in Soul music for the type of late night love crooners who became a staple in the 80s, and Wade O. Brown is looking to fill that void.
Born and raised in Detroit, the singer/songwriter/keyboardist was mentored as teen by the legendary Clark Sisters and became a regular in the Midwest Gospel community. As a young adult he moved to Toronto, where there was a burgeoning Soul music scene, and was soon fronting a band at singer Keith Washington's soul food restaurant. Brown began making a name for himself playing private parties in the Toronto area and became a vocalist of choice when soul performers such as Aretha Franklin and Glenn Lewis came to town.
