Wade Barnett, born 1966 in Columbus, Ohio. Parents from Tennessee raised Southern Baptist. Mom and dad were both gospel singers. That inspired Wade as a child hearing them sing. Wade had not yet been given a singing voice however.With in the last few years Wade had felt he had been called to sing the Blues. Inspired by some of the Blues greats such as, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Lightnin Hopkins, Elmore James, Howling Wolf and Buddy Guy. Listening to them he could feel the Blues coming through their voice. Feeling their passion he knew he had that same passion. Blues had always been in his heart. Wade doesn't just sing the Blues he feels the Blues. When you hear him sing he makes you feel the Blues as well. He feels like he has a message much like a Baptist mininster with great passion, he feels he is the preacher of the blues.
