Morgan Wade Lays Her Soul Bare On Stage REVIEW+PHOTOS: Morgan Wade At Palomino Fest 7/9/22
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… This was my first time experiencing Morgan Wade and her music, and I was drawn to it and her. There’s something about raspy female country voice singing songs about heavy topics that aren’t really common in country music (i.e. metal health and addiction) and Morgan’s got me longing for more. Have you heard her song “Run”? Man… that one’s a heartbreaker.
A relative newcomer, her 2021 debut album Reckless (an album that I only dove into after seeing her at Palomino) is a terrific album. If you are partial to country music that straddles the pop genre, odds are good that Reckless is an album that’ll you’ll want to pick up at the local record shop. It’s a real polished album in terms of production and is easily a candidate or on your digital playlist as you take a leisurely drive with the windows open along the coast on through the country.
But if you take the time to listen she’s singing about, she’s really digging deep into some personal stuff. Watching her perform songs from her debut album at Palomino, even with the drunk mid-afternoon crowd chattering away, I really felt that I got a real good look into Morgan, her music, and her soul. “Don’t Cry”, “Last Cigarette”, the aforementioned “Run”… she really sang her soul out there and was an eye-opening introduction to her talent…”
