About Wade

70s/80s style acoustic guitarist & singer
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Wade Merritt takes the charming, the retro, the catchy and paints it with his exceptional voice and performance. Coming out of the Bath area with his collection of infatuation-inducing originals and sprinkling of classics. From the Bondesque to MIKA, echoes of Fleetwood Mac to the long shadow of the sixties, Wade’s blend of influences are as long as his hair, seamlessly bound up in his nostalgic sound and persona.
