"I think it's really easy to get caught up in playing a good show and sometimes it's easy to get caught up in image and publicity and how good the interviews sound and things like that,"said Wadley, "But for me, I try to really concentrate on the personal aspect of it because in my mind, music bypasses the ears and goes straight to the heart." Wadley's shows are generally quite small and intimate, allowing the crowd to get a more personal experience from the show. Wadley encourages his fans to come close to the stage and get involved in the show. Many times Wadley opens for a punk or metal band, but still tries to leave an impact on the crowd, even if his sound differs from the main act. "I try to make shows intimate," said Wadley,"I even ask people to come get on the stage with me because I hate singing by myself."
“Others seemed to have a similar reaction. "I thought he had an interesting voice and a unique, interesting style," said Karah Renfro after seeing Wadley perform for the first time.”
"I say his music is fantastic," said Tim Gift, who attended Wadley's recent concert at Maryville College. "He has made his own style."
