Wade Bowen

Ask Wade Bowen what distinguishes his music, and after mulling the notion for a minute, his answer is basic and direct: “Intensity.” That’s because Bowen sings and writes with passion and fervent commitment about the matters that count in life with a depth of thought and palpable emotionality that hits listeners where they live and feel. And that fervor is matched by rich melodies and lyrical and musical hooks that grab the ears and imagination and don’t let go. It’s a talent that’s made Bowen a leading light on the thriving Texas music scene and launched him into realms beyond with a sound built upon a rock-solid country foundation that also draws inspiration from the wide spectrum of music he loves, be it rockers like Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith or critically-acclaimed roots singer-songwriters like Patty Griffin and Paul Thorn or his personal musical icon Bruce Springsteen. And now with If We Ever Make It Home, Bowen delivers a tour de force collection of songs of inspiration, hope and deep feeling.
