Wade Bowen - Somewhere Between the Secret and the Truth
Tasty Brew Music
The music of Wade Bowen has been spinning in my playlists since I went on the radio in 2010. My niece Shae was attending Texas State University in San Marcos at the time and Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers, Jason Bowland and others were working hard to become the “go to” purveyors of that very distinctive sound that some came to label as Outlaw or Red Dirt Country. Today Wade is a familiar and awarded name in music, performing along the active touring highways of Texas and the Southwest and selling out top venues like the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels and performing multiple times on the Grand Ole Opry. Carving out a dedicated fan base with his magnetic appeal and proven abilities, Bowen has now enjoyed a 20-year stint as a leader amongst a flourishing Americana and Alt-Country music community. Wade continued his productive and lyrical life through the pandemic on his most recent full-length album, Somewhere Between The Secret And The Truth. Wade recounts “I went through a big writer’s drought; kind of just being shell shocked from everything, not knowing how to handle it, and then finally came out of that and just had this flood of just wanting to write.” “This reset button really rejuvenated my passion for my entire career, all the way across the board. I was trying to find where I fit musically again. I’ve been doing this so long that I feel like I got off track from where I felt I fit–I was all over the place with my songwriting and my career.” “Ironically enough, COVID really gave me a chance to just turn my brain off a little bit and stop thinking. When I came out on the other side, I really found not only a renewed sense of my music and wanting to get out and play again, but I found a renewed sense of self. I found who I wanted to be as a writer, as a singer, as an artist.” Wade cowrote all 12 songs on the record and serves as the sole producer for the first time in his career.

An artistic descendant of American icons like Guy Clark, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen and more, Bowen is another link in a Texan chain of roots-rock poets stretching back more than 50 years – but his ambition never ended at the state line.Follow Wade: https://www.wadebowen.com/subscribe for more content - https://linktr.ee/windycityjoes Presented by Untied EntertainmentPartnered with Joe's Bar, Joe's Live! in Rosemont, & Carol's PubMusic: I'm Never Drinking Again by Josh Kiser
Wade Bowen is a Country Music Singer/Songwriter based in Texas. Wade joins Country Music Made Me to discuss the various ways his family inspired his love of music as a youngster, including his Mom’s past experience within the music industry, the outgoing (but tone-deaf) musical stylings of his dad, and the time spent with his talented sisters in-front of his great-grandmothers piano. Wade and Brendan talk about the transformation that occurred late in high school and into college at Texas Tech, when his love for music became more than a hobby, turning into a passion and creating dreams of Country Music stardom. Wade explains the circumstances that led to chasing a career within the Texas music scene in his early 20’s rather than making the move to Nashville to follow the stereotypical route of a country artist and the lessons he learned within the business of the industry along the way. Finally, Wade talks about his time spent during the pandemic reassessing his goals and regaining the inspiration he discovered he was losing because of an overly hectic schedule leading into 2020. A time that included the release of his EP Where Phones Don’t Work, which includes a slightly more positive tone than past music, in an effort to inspire hope during a dark time.
